Low or high standards,we all have one. It is important to have standards and set an example. Has your standards worked for you? Good if it has  but, if it has not,then you need to do something about it.

In life we all have standards on what we want. It could be the kind of car we want to drive, the kind of house we want to buy in the future, the type of man or woman we want to get married to and the lists goes on.

Sometimes, we set our standards so high forgetting that we are just humans and anything can happen. The only thing constant in life is change, so we need to be open minded about everything.

Do not get me wrong,It’s definitely good to maintain high standards but some people set their standards so high,when they do not achieve it,they become depressed. Especially in relationships,we  expect way too much and when things do not go the way we want it to be, we get so disappointed.  One way or the other,we have all sabotaged our relationships(past or present) . It may not be deliberately but on some level subconscious. What do you think?

One advice I will give is when setting a standard you want to achieve, be realistic about it. Do not build castles in the air because at the end of it all,you will not be  fooling anybody. You will be fooling yourself.

If you set standards by which you are not able to adhere, then you are probably not doing it right.


One thought

  1. To me there’s no right or wrong way to approach life, in any direction you choose to step you Will learn something about yourself, and in-by learning you’ll find your way. For each person this process will be unique, and very different from the next.
    My advice in setting standards around relationships : create a standard based on principals and values that you want in a partner, and that you already follow in your life. Then stick firm to this until someone comes along that fills those shoes. March on brave one.
