Every thing in life has its own cost – from eating unhealthy food to a bad relationship , we always has tp pay for it . Not long ago i met with a friend i hadnt see for over 5 years . I was shocked inside when i saw her Her faced was drawns , haggerd and inflammed , she looked ten years older than the vibrant 38 years old i remembered from before .
I expressed my concern and ask her what shes been going through . She said shes been haven struggles in her marriage , but eventually got them straightened out . i was skeptical with her answer because it doensnt seems so .A happy marital life doenst seemes to wear you out and looking really haggered and drained .
i asked her how she solved the problems , she said she lowered her expectations .and decided to settle for less .that she ever wanted . Being the kind of person im , i shared my diaspprove with her and pointed out that it looked like it ws causing her stress but she defended her decision . . I felt sad and i think if i was uncousiously doing the same thing in areas of my life .
I discovered that in life we need to expand and not contrast – people generally have low expectation so be careful who you share your gaols and ambition with ,, they might get you settle for their ego purpose .
Pause to reflect in the key ares of your life . Are you settling for less ? Are their other ways you can approach those ares without compromising your values ?
