10 Expectations that help create the "perfect image"

Today morning a patient of mine was adamant on discussing the meaning of true love. While she expressed it as complete surrender and sacrifice for her beloved, she was very confused on how to meet his expectations.
Ironically the next few patients and queries of the day, turned out to be all regarding how to full fill others expectations.

It seems, the only way to get the "perfect image" in front of your loved ones is by meeting all there expectations.

Here is a list of 10 major expectations that if full-filled, help create the "perfect image".

1. They expect you to be knowledgeable about everything.

2. They expect you to always be ready to help.
No matter what is your personal emotional, financial or social condition, you should be ready to help.

3. They expect you to always have viable solutions for their problems.

4. They expect you to take all responsibility while trying to resolve their issue.

5. They expect you to be always honest.

6. They expect you to be happy in adjusting in any situation, even in those situations where they wouldn't adjust.

7. They expect you share your emotional, social and financial prosperity with them. Irrespective of they deserving it or not.

8. They expect you to always understand and empathize with them. Even if they are wrong.

9. They expect you to take all decisions that lead to "happiness".

10. They expect you to face elders and other authorities if needed.

I may have missed some expectations.. feel free to add some.

Hope now you can understand how useless it is to run after the "perfect image".
And how important it is to run after your own peace of mind.
