16 Apr The Dare to Dream Podcast Episode 23: Untangling Life’s Preconceived Expectations
In this episode, we explore the concept of a “life ultimatum,” the demand we put on ourselves to be a certain person or have specific things (like a family or house) at a defined time in our lives.
There’s a tremendous amount of external pressure to hit these life milestones—but when was the last time you stopped to think whether your goals actually align with what is being expected of you?
Without careful introspection, we can feel burdened by the weight of “shoulds” and “musts.” But what do you truly want? Is it a family by the time you’re thirty, or a house, or progress in the career you’re in? Or, perhaps you’re after something else entirely?
Join us as we untangle the webs of meaning that have created these often daunting life ultimatums. We discuss how to look within ourselves to focus on becoming somebody we genuinely want to be, as opposed to what society deems appropriate.
This is a topic constantly impeding on our overall wellbeing; we hope this episode can provide some understanding and peace of mind as you discover what makes you come alive in a way that only you can.
