The expectations of others ...

I'm all in a quandary of indecision and turmoil at work. I've got to make a "career decision" pronto and the weight of others' expectations and ambitions (on my behalf) is crushing me. The confidence of others (again on my behalf) while flattering, is a huge pressure and I don't know what to do. All I really want is to earn enough to pay the mortgage and have a treat now and again. All I really want to do now is curl up in bed and not come out.

Hmmm. A quandry indeed.

Putting others' expectations, hopes, dreams and desires for you aside for a moment ...

... what do YOU want to do? (apart from staying under the doona)

i like the duvet option. but probably won't pay the mortgage. sigh. i bet other's faith isn't misplaced though - does that help or is it more pressure?

Methinks the whole problem is I have no idea what I want to do. I've spent most of my life avoiding hard decisions and now this happens - arg & all that.
Bastard mortgage, bastard banks, blerg, bah humbug. At least I have 4 days off now, doona time, when I'll just not think about it.
