Most thoughts, feelings, and ideas about family and relationships have been guided by what we have seen in movies, read in books, or heard about through generational tales of soulmates and fated love. Fairly early in our lives, we develop expectations regarding what our relationships should consist of, what they shouldn't, and what role we expect our partners to play. Although there is nothing wrong with having expectations in a relationship, unrealistic expectations can stress and ruin any relationship. Just like people, no relationship is ever perfect. All relationships will consist of good and bad times, joys and pains, harmony, and conflict. No one is perfect in our world, so dont expect a perfect relationship that can meet your high hopes. One of the most significant relationship destroyers is unrealistic expectations. Expecting something out of the relationship that the other is either ignorant of, unwilling to provide, or simply unable to provide can be emotionally damaging for both partners involved and unhealthy for the relationship. We should always try to communicate our needs and desires consistently and honestly. Do not keep your likes and dislikes, dreams and fears, achievements and mistakes, or anything else to yourself. Any thoughts or comments?

I AM FAT. I AM UGLY. I DON’T FIT INTO THIS DRESS. WISH I WAS SKINNY. I CAN’T FIND THE CLOTHES IN MY SIZE. MY BODY IS TERRIBLE. IT IS TOO AWKWARD FOR ME AS PEOPLE WILL TAUNT ME AS I AM FAT. I CANT DO THIS. While many people are proud of their appearance, a faction of others have issues with their version of themselves. These negative views can have an impact on both your physical and mental health. We will detail the four aspects of body image, how societal norms affect body image, and highlight tips on how to keep a positive body image. People's thoughts about their appearance can affect how they feel about themselves. Several factors influence your self-esteem. Your vision of yourself typically begins forming in early childhood and continues developing throughout adulthood. A negative body image can damage self-esteem and lead to depression or other mental health conditions. When it comes to body image, there are some things beyond our control that we must learn to love, no matter how hard it seems. Issues with your body don’t start and end with physical appearance. The mental aspect of having a poor body image can create a toxic environment for you. A person who thinks they’re too overweight or not muscular enough is only part of the problem. More issues arise when people begin to guess their worth second. For example, you may not like how you physically look and allow yourself to think negatively about how you’re not good enough or not attractive enough. These thoughts create a whole host of problems like Anxiety, Depression, poor self-esteem, and mainly guilt. You end up with low confidence in expressing yourself. Any Comments?

We all strive to be better at what we do; this is part of improving our self-esteem. Accomplishing things makes us feel good, and the better we do something, the better we feel. However, there is a danger that this can extend into perfectionism. We all understand the significant pitfalls of trying to be perfect. One of the difficulties with perfectionism is that it is a certain route to decreasing your self-esteem – it just isn’t possible to be perfect all the time. When we aren’t perfect, we can feel like we have failed, undoing all our good feeling – no matter how close we came. Paradoxically, this can heighten our efforts to be perfect. Another danger of perfectionism is that it makes us impose these exact unrealistic expectations on others. Like us, these other people have no chance of achieving these expectations, which can make them feel criticized and that they have failed, increasing their doomed pursuit of perfectionism. This is one of the ways that perfectionism can be ‘transmitted’ from person to person. However, one of the more unexpected downsides of perfectionism is the belief that we have obtained it. In this state, we believe that we are right and that others must be wrong by comparison. This false position of infallibility can be destructive to our relationships and blind us to the person we are and to the positive attributes of others. Any Comments?

Today’s generation is being controlled by social media that have formed unrealistic expectations like being “PERFECT.” They believe there is constant competition to be renowned as Mr. or Miss perfect. But less they see the negative side of it. Social media is distracting them, exposing them to bullying, invasion of privacy, increased distraction, spreading false rumors, and increasing unrealistic views of other people’s lives. Children are so into using social media that they are ready to compromise genuine connections. Even within the family, the younger kids are not listening to what their parents have to say rather, they are always on social media playing games, posting, and sharing memes or making TikTok. Parents should stop this by limiting their screen time, monitoring teens' accounts, explaining what’s NOT OK, and encouraging face-to-face contact with friends. Any thoughts or comments?
