It is easy to forget that we are human when we have so many criteria to meet and areas in life to excel. When we are supposed to be in a job that we love, in a wonderful relationship, at a certain weight, etc. ⁣

Some of these are external. There are expectations from our family and our culture. Which have we internalised? Is this standard my standard? Is it moving me towards what will bring me contentment and meaning? ⁣

Do I have to get an ‘A’ in my exam, or will a pass suffice?⁣
