For one thing, we are each on a different levels of learning, and have lived different lives, thus we have various perspectives.
Like the short dog in the photo, I know that some things I do may look like they would be simple. But I also know that the best way for me to get through something is to have no expectations. Not of myself and not of others. I can't do anything about others who have expectations of me, and I don't alter my plans or my honest values to accommodate their expectations of me. Not my problem. And if they are disappointed in me, also not my problem. I give myself the freedom to take care of me. That is enough of a job. The only perspective for that is from within.
