When was the last time you stopped someone and asked if they were happy? Not if they were doing good, but if they were really happy. Not outwardly, not momentarily, not according to what society labels as being happy and fulfilled, but deep within. What about yourself? Have you asked yourself that question lately? Are you happy? Take a moment to think before you answer.
Most of us know how it feels to be in a position of high expectations. If others have high hopes in you, based on a comparison to another person's achievements, it can be particularly intimidating and seem like that mountain that is impossible to climb. Why? Because you are expected to fill someone else's shoes. And that could pretty much affect any area of your life.
