I work so hard on letting go of expectations and loving others exactly as they are. I don't like the phrase..."I have high expectations for my kids...husband...parents...in laws...ex...etc. It's only when I need to control is when I want others to behave in a way I deem right and appropriate. I choose love, kindness and acceptance of what is. It makes me feel happy with a growing and expansive heart.
...especially when someone or someone's is affected by narcissism, they have it or are aiding & abetting by their co-dependence. In the end this is all about what my recovery is about, realizing I don't have to pay attention to everyone who demands it. It's ok for me to say "you're hurting me with your words" and then to walk away. CLICK HERE for more life, love, friendship and inspiring quotes!
