In this episode, we discuss dealing with unmet expectations, the results of ten Buzzfeed quizzes we took, and the hyper-classification of ourselves and each other.

BUT FIRST! Make sure you're on our email list. Tomorrow (12/1/15) we're giving away two items from our #ATTIntention and #ATTindulgence gift guides to two email subscribers! Check out the gift guides here.

 

What you’ll hear:

  • Healthy ways to respond to unmet expectations
  • Why good bosses put unrealistically high expectations on employees
  • The narcissistic side of self knowledge
  • Our sorry knowledge of The Constitution...especially compared to our knowledge of Netflix and 90's rom coms :/

Can I quote you on that?

  • "Wouldn't you say that our happiness and how we experience life is actually way more affected by our expectations than our reality?" Jacey
  • "What happens when our expectations aren't met is it shakes something we believed in." Maggie
  • "When we get used to our expectations being met, we start to feel kind of invincible...and we get this false sense of control over our lives." Jacey
  • "When were we ever promised a perfect life?" Maggie
  • "Oftentimes, we project the expectations we have of ourselves onto other people." Maggie
  • "Self knowledge is a wonderful thing but at what point does it just become navel gazing?" Jacey
  • "We are desperate for identity." Maggie
  • The Interent allows us to find all the other people who are just like us and surround ourselves in this little circle and never hear anything from anyone outside of it." Jacey
