“Our expectations are a disguise for our fears and unmet inner needs.” Dr Shefali The Awakened Family
If I were to ask you what are three things you expect of your child, you would probably be able to give me three expectations right off the bat.
Here's the deal we all have expectations whether we are aware of them or not. Not only do we have expectations, we are often deeply attached to them. Our attachment to expectations, what we think our child "should" do and be creates disconnection.
When we free our child from our expectations, we create an environment that welcomes engagement and connection.
So how then do we create an environment that welcomes connection and frees our child from our expectations? We become aware of what our underlying unmet inner need and fear is.
You see expectations are a way to control and quite simply a coping skill we have developed to ease our fear and unmet inner needs.
Come hang out with me and I will show you how to discover your fear behind your expectations and how to free your child from them.
