Unrealistic Expectations

Ten false assumptions that work against understanding myself and my relationships with others:


  1. That it is possible for everybody to like me

  2. That I must be competent and adequate all of the time

  3. That other people are bad if they do not share my values

  4. That “all is lost” when I get treated unfairly or experience rejection

  5. That I cannot control or change my feelings

  6. That unless everything is structured and understandable, there is reason to be fearful or anxious

  7. That problems of the past that have influenced my life must continue to determine my feelings and behavior

  8. That it is easier to avoid problems than to accept them and begin working toward a solution

  9. That life should be better than it is

  10. That health and happiness can be realized by waiting for somebody else to make something happen.
