Another throwback to couple of summers ago, since I haven’t been back to #tennessee since early May. It probably shows in my mood, and I apologize to anyone around me that has to tolerate that. . . . . #rrl#doublerl#denim#selvedge#selvedgedenim#style#tattoos#traditionaltattoos#madeinusa#chippewaboots#western#cabin#workwear#jeans#tn#tattoo#life_in_appalachia#easttn

So many times we hold people to a high standard only for them to fall short in our eyes. Whether it’s a partner, boss, friend or child, we set high expectations for what they should say, do, think or feel. When they fail to meet the standard we are disappointed, frustrated, angry and sad which can lead to us lashing out or pulling away. My question is, are you asking them to achieve more than what you are willing to do yourself? Expect them to behave with restraint, calm or even happiness even when they are tired, sad, lonely or frustrated, but give yourself full license to fully express your negative feelings and emotions to anyone who will listen? Expect them to achieve more physically, academically, or financially, but refuse to reach higher and do more yourself? Expect them to constantly reach out and give their time to you even when they are pressed for time, but never reciprocate? Maybe it’s time your focus for setting standards should be placed inwardly instead of on others. Set your personal standards high and those around you will either follow your lead or they will fall away. Either way, you can only control how YOU react to the situations you are dealt. Once your focus is back where it belongs, you’ll notice a marked improvement in your life in all ways, but especially in your levels of satisfaction and happiness.
