It started with my parents – now everyone seems to expect too much from me

DEAR DEIDRE: HOWEVER since I was a kid have I been treated differently by my teachers, colleagues, and even my parents. It’s as if I’m held to a higher standard.

The teacher hit me like a ton of bricks if I stepped out of line, even though I was generally a good kid.

If I don't do well, I'll never hear the end of it

My parents never put academic pressure on my brother like they did on me.

His failures and bad behavior were accepted but if I don’t do well I will never hear the end of it.

There have been other incidents throughout the years that made me feel disrespected and appreciated.

My achievements are ignored. I don’t know how to deal with these feelings.

DEIDRE SAYS: You cannot meet everyone’s expectations.

They may come from exactly where they want you to be, but their idea of ​​what that looks like may be very different from yours.

You can’t control what others say or do, but if your emotions are overwhelming, talking to a therapist can reduce resentment and help you develop coping strategies.
