missdaisyI fully understand the irony of what I’m about to do here.  Most of my practice and almost all of my writing tackles expectations – negative emotions come when our expectations don’t match up with reality.  The catchier way to say this – the tyranny of the should.

Things should be a certain way.  People should act like this.  I shouldn’t have to feel this/deal with this.


Me, driving.

One of my guiltier pleasures is mild road rage.  Though it has never escalated (due, no doubt, to my excellent grasp of anger management) I tend to talk to other drivers on the road almost constantly.  And although this is a lot of “should”, I believe if we all followed these simple rules, the road would be a happier place.
