TUNE Marle Thomson - Expectations
This song is about expectations. Expectations we have of ourselves and the presumed expectations of the people around us. It's about the constant pressure we feel, the 'fear of missing out.' These days we are so visible online, but at the same time showing so little of ourselves. We are constantly comparing ourselves with others, and it's not surprising that so many people get a burn-out. The social and self-imposed pressure can be tough. But it's okay to give up without giving up. "Just 'cause I'm giving it up, doesn't mean I give up, no." You have to choose your own path, by trial and error and daring to be vulnerable.
It is a personal struggle for me and the perfectionist that I can be ;-) Sometimes I can feel the fear that I will never fulfill my true potential. Yes, I also like to stay in control and can set the bar very high for myself. But life cannot be controlled, we all deal with sadness and disappointment and every time it is the art to be able to let go, to continue to trust and to enjoy the moment.
