Meeting Other Peoples Expectations quotes by Kilroy J. Oldster
#1. We search our entire lives to create a genuine and reliable self that can relate with other people and faithfully express our artistic temperament. Our battle for personal authenticity requires us to penetrate layers of self-deception, conquer ego defense mechanism, and destroy a false self that is intent upon meeting other people's expectations. #Quote by Kilroy J. Oldster
Meeting Other Peoples Expectations quotes by Ian Hamilton Finlay
#2. No, I don't make my work in order to challenge or confuse other people's expectations - I only do what I find natural. #Quote by Ian Hamilton Finlay
Meeting Other Peoples Expectations quotes by Joan Medlicott
#3. Within the first twenty years of our lives, before we are really adult, we make choices motivated by insecurity, fear, and other people's expectations; certinly not guided by clarity and wisdom. We plod along for years living with the wrong career or spousal choice, in a location we did not choose and perhaps do not like, and much more. One day we wake up restless and confused, and acknowledge that we have no agenda of our own, and that we have been living someone else's passion, their dream. #Quote by Joan Medlicott
Meeting Other Peoples Expectations quotes by Barbara Brown Taylor
#4. It was not until I began meeting people of other faiths in their most sacred spaces that I learned how bruised some of them were by Christian evangelism. Worshippers at the Hindu Temple returned to the parking lot after one of their major festivals to find Christians by their cars with pamphlets demeaning their holiday. Muslims were used to Christians saying malicious things about the Qur'an. Native Americans were tired of being asked what God they prayed to. The shared consensus is that Christian evangelists are not very good listeners. They assume they are speaking to people with no knowledge of God themselves. They are disrespectful to other people's faith. #Quote by Barbara Brown Taylor
Meeting Other Peoples Expectations quotes by Mokokoma Mokhonoana
#5. Man's growth is held back by his surrender to other people's expectation that he remain the person he was when they met him. #Quote by Mokokoma Mokhonoana
Meeting Other Peoples Expectations quotes by Alexis Hall
#6. I couldn't afford to tangle myself up in other people's expectations and inevitable disappointment. It would be awful. An ever-expanding cycle of everyone feeling bad, like a bulimic serpent eating its own tail. #Quote by Alexis Hall
Meeting Other Peoples Expectations quotes by Jordan Bach
#7. Being yourself is hard. Living with the regret of having lived your life according to other people's expectations is hard. Pick your hard. #Quote by Jordan Bach
Meeting Other Peoples Expectations quotes by Stephen Gilligan
#8. One of the obvious implications is that a person will have to face the fact that she cannot meet other people's expectations. This signals the end of what might be called the "camel" phase of human development. I believe it was Nietschze who suggested that for the first part of life, we are camels, trudging through the desert, accepting on our backs everybody's "shoulds" and "don'ts." Camels only know how to spit; they don't think for themselves or talk back. As the camel dies, a lion is born in its place. Lions discover both their roar and the art of preening. The lion may be a little shaky at first, so support and encouragement are vital. But once the camel begins to die (e.g., signaled by depression), there is no turning back. Symptoms occupy the space between the death of the camel and the birth of the lion. A therapist can be a good midwife during this liminal phase. #Quote by Stephen Gilligan
Meeting Other Peoples Expectations quotes by Honeysuckle Weeks
#9. WI played a young Helena Bonham Carter in a BBC film called 'A Dark Adapted Eye,' and I thought she was a completely spellbinding person. Totally unmoved by other people's expectations, fashions or opinions. She's probably the coolest English actress there is. Incredibly idiosyncratic. #Quote by Honeysuckle Weeks
Meeting Other Peoples Expectations quotes by Liane Moriarty
#10. Thirty-nine-year-old moderately successful Human Resources Director. Interests include regency romances, reality TV, and baking large novelty birthday cakes for other people's children. Hobbies include drinking Tia Maria and eating Turkish delight in the bath and dining out with her mum and dad. Wanted to be a ballerina but didn't end up with a ballerina body; however, has been told she is an impressive dirty dancer when drunk. Knows her wine, so please just hand the wine list over. Godmother to nine children, member of two book clubs, Social Club Manager for the Australian Payroll Officers' Association. Suffers from a severe blushing problem but is not shy and will probably end up better friends with your friends than you, which you'll find highly irritating after we break up. Has recently become so worried about meeting the love of her life and having children before she reaches menopause that she has cried piteously in the middle of the night. But otherwise is generally quite cheerful and has on at least three separate occasions that she knows of been described as 'Charming'. Yep, that about summed it up. What a catch. #Quote by Liane Moriarty
Meeting Other Peoples Expectations quotes by L.M. Montgomery
#11. [ ... ] I grew up out of that strange, dreamy childhood of mine and went into the world of reality. I met with experiences that bruised my spirit - but they never harmed my ideal world. That was always mine to retreat into at will. I learned that that world and the real world clashed hopelessly and irreconcilably; and I learned to keep them apart so that the former might remain for me unspoiled. I learned to meet other people on their own ground since there seemed to be no meeting place on mine. I learned to hide the thoughts and dreams and fancies that had no place in the strife and clash of the market place. I found that it was useless to look for kindred souls in the multitude; one might stumble on such here and there, but as a rule it seemed to me that the majority of people lived for the things of time and sense alone and could not understand my other life. So I piped and danced to other people's piping - and held fast to my own soul as best I could. #Quote by L.M. Montgomery
Meeting Other Peoples Expectations quotes by Robert Jordan
#12. He was swimming in a sea of other people's expectations. Men had drowned in seas like that. #Quote by Robert Jordan
Meeting Other Peoples Expectations quotes by Steve Saint
#13. I have long dreaded the thought of getting to the end of life and regretting that I allowed my own timidity or other people's expectations to determine the course of my life. I had decided at a much younger age that several of my beliefs should determine the course of my life ... I ... believe that Waengongi, the Creator, has an epic script into which my minute presence has been written. #Quote by Steve Saint
Meeting Other Peoples Expectations quotes by Ilchi Lee
#14. Even when we have realized oneness and nothingness, we still have our personal lives to manage, bodies to take care of, and mouths to feed, and you will know which one is yours and which ones are others', so you won't put food into another person's mouth when you are hungry. Also you won't kiss a rattlesnake or hug a cactus no matter how strong an affinity you feel toward them. But at the same time, we know these apparent separations are functional, not fundamental, and should be recognized as such without mistaking one for the other. I would call this apparent separation "functional ego," or you can call it your "character," which is the collection of your beliefs, habits, and other people's expectations. #Quote by Ilchi Lee
Meeting Other Peoples Expectations quotes by Rob Zombie
#15. Once you feel like you're being dictated by other people's expectations, it usually backfires. #Quote by Rob Zombie
Meeting Other Peoples Expectations quotes by Jessica Clare
#16. There was just something about other people's expectations that made her freeze in place, unable to function. #Quote by Jessica Clare
Meeting Other Peoples Expectations quotes by Jim Buckner
#17. Didn't normal simply mean conforming to other people's expectations? #Quote by Jim Buckner
Meeting Other Peoples Expectations quotes by Cynthia D'Aprix Sweeney
#18. This was the part she hated, the part of a relationship that always nudged her to bail, the part where someone else's misery or expectations or neediness crept into her carefully prescribed world. It was such a burden, other people's lives. #Quote by Cynthia D'Aprix Sweeney
Meeting Other Peoples Expectations quotes by Bryant Simon
#19. Pretty quickly, I stopped seeing the company as an engine of community. Instead, I saw it as a mythmaker offering only an illusion of belonging and meeting its customers' desire for connections in form, maybe, but surely not in substance. Once I came to this conclusion, I started to dig deeper into the company's other promises
great working conditions, musical discovery, fair treatment of farmer, and concern for the environment. Every time I went excavating, the stories turned out to be more complex, more heavily edited, and more ambiguous than I had first thought. Each time, it became clear that Starbucks fulfilled its many promises only in the thinnest, most transitory of ways and that people's desires went largely unfulfilled. #Quote by Bryant Simon
Meeting Other Peoples Expectations quotes by Shauna Niequist
#20. Many of us, myself, included, considered our souls necessary collateral damage to get done the things we felt we simply had to get get done - because of other people's expectations, because we want to be know as highly capable, because we're trying to outrun an inner emptiness. And for a while we don't even realize the compromise we've made. We're on autopilot, chugging through the day on fear and caffeine, checking things off the list, falling into bed without even a real thought or feeling or connection all day long, just a sense of having made it through. #Quote by Shauna Niequist
Meeting Other Peoples Expectations quotes by Grace Scott
#21. Admit it or not, you care about what others think about you. People who declare they don't are more likely pretentious. You cannot stop caring. It is in your nature. But it is absolutely wrong to live your life for others, to make your decisions based on other people's perceptions and expectations. #Quote by Grace Scott
Meeting Other Peoples Expectations quotes by Tiger Woods
#22. One of the things that my parents have taught me is never listen to other people's expectations. You should live your own life and live up to your own expectations, and those are the only things I really care about it. #Quote by Tiger Woods
Meeting Other Peoples Expectations quotes by Mike Krzyzewski
#23. I don't think you play for other people's expectations, you know. You don't go and become a lawyer because your mother or father want you to, you don't become a coach because somebody wants you to. #Quote by Mike Krzyzewski
Meeting Other Peoples Expectations quotes by Jocelyn K. Glei
#24. No one likes the feeling that other people are waiting - impatiently - for a response. At the beginning of the day, faced with an overflowing inbox, an array of voice mail messages, and the list of next steps from your last meeting, it's tempting to "clear the decks" before starting your own work . When you're up-to-date, you tell yourself, it will be easier to focus.

The trouble with this approach is it means spending the best part of the day on other people's priorities. #Quote by Jocelyn K. Glei
Meeting Other Peoples Expectations quotes by Adam Baker
#25. But imagine if we were the only people left. The last men on earth. I'd be the best golfer in the world right now. You'd be the only priest. And Ghost would be the only Sikh. Imagine that. A four-hundred-year religion terminating in a dope-head grease monkey."
"I thought you liked the bloke."
"I do. But think about it. All the people that made you feel worthless and small down the years. The bullies and bosses. All gone. It's exhilarating, if you think about it. Freedom from other people's expectations. We can finally start living for ourselves. #Quote by Adam Baker
Meeting Other Peoples Expectations quotes by Kilroy J. Oldster
#26. We tend to live down to other people's expectations, especially the people closest to us. It is more difficult to obtain approval of people who hold us in high regard than to accept the lower standards that other people hold of us. #Quote by Kilroy J. Oldster
Meeting Other Peoples Expectations quotes by Melody Beattie
#27. Today I will realize that I'm powerless over other people's expectations of me. I'll think about what I want and consider that how I respond to others' needs will affect the course of my life. I will own my own power and choose the course that's right for me. #Quote by Melody Beattie
Meeting Other Peoples Expectations quotes by Jim Gaffigan
#28. It took me a long time to understand not to get caught up in other people's expectations. It really comes down to creative fulfillment. It took me a while to realize I don't want to just be on a show to be on a show. #Quote by Jim Gaffigan
Meeting Other Peoples Expectations quotes by Myles Munroe
#29. People who changed the world have declared independence from other people's expectations. #Quote by Myles Munroe
Meeting Other Peoples Expectations quotes by Oprah Winfrey
#30. We have to steer our true life's course. Whatever your calling is in life! The whole purpose of being here is to figure out what that is as soon as possible, so you go about the business of being on track, of not being owned by what your mother said, what society said, whatever people think a woman is supposed to be when you can exceed other people's expectations and be defined by your own! #Quote by Oprah Winfrey
Meeting Other Peoples Expectations quotes by Paul Theroux
#31. You think of travelers as bold, but our guilty secret is that travel is one of the laziest ways on earth of passing the time. Travel is not merely the business of being bone-idle, but also an elaborate bumming evasion, allowing us to call attention to ourselves with our conspicuous absence while we intrude upon other people's privacy - being actively offensive as fugitive freeloaders. The traveler is the greediest kind of romantic voyeur, and in some well-hidden part of the traveler's personality is an unpickable knot of vanity, presumption, and mythomania bordering on the pathological. This is why a traveler's worst nightmare is not the secret police or the witch doctors or malaria, but rather the prospect of meeting another traveler.

Most writing about travel takes the form of jumping to conclusions, and so most travel books are superfluous, the thinnest, most transparent monologuing. Little better than a license to bore, travel writing is the lowest form of literary self-indulgence: dishonest complaining, creative mendacity, pointless heroics, and chronic posturing, much of it distorted with Munchausen syndrome. #Quote by Paul Theroux
Meeting Other Peoples Expectations quotes by Bill Johnson
#32. Our identity sets the tone for all we do and become. Christians who live out of who they really are cannot be crippled by the opinions of others. They don't work to fit into other people's expectations, but burn with the realization of who the Father. says they are. #Quote by Bill Johnson
Meeting Other Peoples Expectations quotes by Bear Grylls
#33. So, before we go too much further, now is a good chance to acknowledge that maybe, just maybe, we are all a little guilty of sometimes living someone else's aspirations for us instead of our own. And this is a great time to say 'No more!' to living out of fear and other people's expectations. #Quote by Bear Grylls
Meeting Other Peoples Expectations quotes by Rosemary Clooney
#34. I felt trapped and fabricated in the fifties living up to other people's expectations. #Quote by Rosemary Clooney
Meeting Other Peoples Expectations quotes by Unknown
#35. Someone: You were pretty good at that thing, why'd you stop doing it?

Me internally: I get extremely anxious when I think about doing something I might possibly succeed at because I base my self-worth on my achievements and other people's approval. I am afraid because I know I will never be able to live up to my own unrealistic expectations. I hate making mistakes because they make me feel worthless. I take negative feedback too personally. I feel immense guilt over not doing things that I've been avoiding, which makes me avoid them more. I feel ashamed and inadequate due to how difficult it is for me to stay committed to anything. I'm worried that I'll just end up disappointing myself and the entire world and I am convinced that if I failed I would literally die.

Me externally: idk I guess I've just been kinda busy lol #Quote by Unknown
Meeting Other Peoples Expectations quotes by Angela Panayotopulos
#36. Love. It was the only explanation. That was what love did to you. It wormed its way inside you and leeched you of your courage. It made you weak, reliant on other people's opinions and expectations. It paralyzed you. #Quote by Angela Panayotopulos
Meeting Other Peoples Expectations quotes by Todd Rose
#37. I've had many occasions since that time to appreciate this timely advice. For me, the hardest part of learning always boils down to figuring out why I should care. Other people's expectations matter to me, but they rarely clinch the deal. I need to build up my own reasons to engage. But once I jump over that hurdle, I'm good to go. I #Quote by Todd Rose
Meeting Other Peoples Expectations quotes by Amefil
#38. Do what makes you happy. Life is too short to live on other people's expectations #Quote by Amefil
Meeting Other Peoples Expectations quotes by Princess Tatiana Of Greece And Denmark
#39. Living up to other people's expectations is always difficult. #Quote by Princess Tatiana Of Greece And Denmark
Meeting Other Peoples Expectations quotes by Tai Sheridan
#40. Don't waste your life living out other people's expectations. #Quote by Tai Sheridan
Meeting Other Peoples Expectations quotes by Jane Lynch
#41. The meeting started, and I could barely listen for my self-mortification. I wanted the hour to end so I could ask her what it was I had done. And then, all of a sudden, it hit me - boing! This had NOTHING to do with me. I felt a wave of relief, an internal shift like I had just had a chiropractic adjustment. I realized that I had made something that had nothing to do with me into something that was all about me.

I saw that I had been doing this all my life. When I was a kid, my mom was easily annoyed, and I always figured it was me bugging her. After growing up like that, I was forever making myself the cause of other people's pain. It was self-centered and rendered me incapable of compassion for others, because I'm no good to anybody else when it's all about me. And frankly, most things have nothing to do with me. It was very adolescent, really. I got it, suddenly and profoundly. #Quote by Jane Lynch
Meeting Other Peoples Expectations quotes by Pell James
#42. I get totally creeped out by other people's movies. #Quote by Pell James
Meeting Other Peoples Expectations quotes by Shawn Ashmore
#43. I'd take telekinesis. I could move things with my mind, and with telepathy I could control other people's minds and make them do whatever I wanted. #Quote by Shawn Ashmore
Meeting Other Peoples Expectations quotes by Paulo Coelho
#44. I think we are afraid of each other when it comes to sex, because we read so much about sex, we talk so openly about sex, we see movies and we read books; but when we are face to face with someone else, we forget our individual patterns; that we are unique. So we try to repeat other people's patterns, according to what we seen and what we heard. So most of us are very frustrated, because we don't accept our individuality as far as sex is concerned. #Quote by Paulo Coelho
Meeting Other Peoples Expectations quotes by Robert Crumb
#45. They can buy talent. You can't buy it for yourself, but you can buy other people's talent to serve your purposes. And once an artist does that, he becomes like a plaything of the rich. #Quote by Robert Crumb
Meeting Other Peoples Expectations quotes by Val Waldeck
#46. The LORD did not set His love on you nor choose you because you were more in number than any other people, for you were the least of all peoples; but because the LORD loves you.." (Deuteronomy 7:7,8) God #Quote by Val Waldeck
Meeting Other Peoples Expectations quotes by Mignon McLaughlin
#47. We can never understand other people's motives, nor their furniture. #Quote by Mignon McLaughlin

#48. While a rich man cannot have more than 1440 minutes a day, a clever man makes more time by using OPM or Other Peoples Minutes.-RVM #Quote by R.v.m.
Meeting Other Peoples Expectations quotes by Adrienne Rich
#49. The study of silence has long engrossed me. The matrix of a poet's work consists not only of what is there to be absorbed and worked on, but also of what is missing, desaparecido, rendered unspeakable, thus unthinkable. It is through these invisible holes in reality that poetry makes its way - certainly for women and other marginalized subjects and for disempowered and colonized peoples generally, but ultimately for all who practice any art at its deeper levels. The impulse to create begins - often terribly and fearfully - in a tunnel of silence. Every real poem is the breaking of an existing silence, and the first question we might ask any poem is, What kind of voice is breaking silence, and what kind of silence is being broken? #Quote by Adrienne Rich
