Ask yourself what did it feel like for you to not be able to live up to your parents’ expectations?
Most parents have at least one of the listed expectations, without realizing the damage those expectations cause. The very existence a psychotherapy field is due, for the most part, to conventional parenting (and the trauma of abuse and neglect). Lack of confidence and self esteem is the result of such expectations, because the message kids get is ” The way you are, is not good enough.” That’s is why as adults most people have the feeling of being not good enough.
