Needy 69: Managing Expectations is an Act of (Self) Love

Managing your expectations is an act of (self) love, a Needy podcast conversation with host Mara Glatzel
A lot of times, people experience shame when their actions don’t compare with that idealized version of who they’ve imagined themselves to be.

Truth bomb: You’ll never be able to meet the expectations that you have for the idealized version of yourself. The idealized version of yourself is just a figment of your own imagination and a result of your social conditioning.

In this episode, I talk about managing the expectations that you’ve set for yourself and allowing yourself to be human. I share a story of my book writing experience and how I’ve had to manage my expectations for myself during that process.

Tune in to hear me explore…

  • Why managing my expectations of myself has become my #1 act of self-care
  • Why you need to get in conversation with yourself and be thoughtful about what you ACTUALLY want 
  • What you need to do to support yourself while working toward what you want
