You know the feeling when we finish reading a really good book or story and then it hits us that we could probably never have some of those things that we idealize, whether it’s in ourselves or in other people? Yeah, maybe it is a little silly to set unrealistically high expectations for everything, but what people don’t usually tell you is that setting high standards for yourself isn’t necessarily a bad thing if you’re not being unreasonable about it. In fact, you should do it more often because nobody else knows what you want better than you do.
Yes, while that may end up narrowing things down for you by a whole lot, it also makes certain things extremely difficult to come by, and as far as I can tell, that’s completely okay. People make it their mission to tell you that you’re being unreasonable even when you, yourself, know what’s best for you. Personally, I just feel like those things shouldn’t stop you from expecting and manifesting better things for yourself. They say that it’s impossible for everybody to have everything that they want. And while that still remains true, it is also true that wanting and aiming for something better isn’t exactly unreasonable.
After all, life is too short for us to stick to things that make you more miserable than happy. It’s a cycle. You can’t have sunny weather for too long, and eventually, the rains are going to hit you. The real question here is whether what you have chosen for yourself can handle how ugly these rains can get. If your answer is no, then there’s no shame in wanting something better. But, if your answer is yes, or something along the lines of ‘It could be, with a little bit of hard work’, then I have to tell you, it’s worth keeping around. But if something in your life ever makes you feel like you need to go to sleep for a million years just to escape it, then you need to ditch that thing and move on to greener pastures.
Of course you deserve nice things because why shouldn’t you?
