unrealistic expectation lysa terkeurst
Everybody seems to have an idea of what you are supposed to be doing or not doing at every phase and for every aspect of life.
Parents, mentors, systems and cultures..all tend to impose a line of action, what they think is best for you at that time, but what will you do if they contradict one another, what will you do if it contradicts your vision?
If no other thing, “wisdom-overload” seem to plague this age. Everywhere you look there is an advise, a suggestion, a correction…but we both know if you are to go by every advice, you will be like a man without direction, everywhere, doing everything.
The words of Lysa Terkuerst i’ve found to be a sound advice, a solution for whoever is caught in the web of people’s opinion.

Don’t allow the unrealistic demands of others to march freely into your life

To be sincere, some people’s sound advice is biased by their personal interest, dislikes and fears, to others, they just want to see you live their unrealized dreams.
Here are two contributions from my friends on this quote.
Obidiegwu Chukwuebuka : I think it is backed by the verse in the Bible that says “guard your heart…” . So if you want to live your life you must have a personal revelation but the revelation can be understood from other people’s experience. And not just on other people’s expressions. You should always use the Bible as a background or foundation for our belief not other people’s expectations.
Ajayi Adebayo: Most times, we are controlled by what we hear or see. I believe the message from this post implies that we shouldn’t allow other peoples want or outrageous desires to be our major focus of demand. This is what mostly lead to depression and low self esteem in people. I believe each and everyone of us should chart our course as directed by God. Having mentors and friends is good but they are not God.
I’ll love to entertain other perspectives on dealing with people’s unrealistic expectations. Kindly contribute via a comment. U might be saving a life as a lot of youths are facing this situation.
