You really think so?

What aspirations and encouragement have others placed on you that you failed to meet.

In my time at High school I was my years consecutive dux (same as valedictorian). I recall when my teachers all looked up to me and kept telling me soon you'll blossom even more grandiosely.

Well a few years in I think I'm more rotten then ever and couldn't be a bigger bum (I know all hope isn't lost, I still have a bit of youth).

What expectations and praise have been given to you that you crushed to bits?

My intelligence, apparently my teachers felt I had so much potential that they would call my house to tell my parents that I was being a slacker and doing things half-assed... And that in turn got me into super huge trouble... and I am still wasting it, planning to change that soon though.

My talent to excel in Judo/Grappling, people who had been doing it for many years would see how fast I learn techniques, how I pull off more advanced techniques on more experienced, much larger people and they think I have been doing it as long as they have, when in reality I was only in it for a year and learned most of them from a books rather than practice. Some bullcrap with my best friend happened, and I dropped out. Trying desperately to get back to where I was physically so I can go back, really don't want to waste the one thing I am good at and actually enjoyed in life. Only have a small window of time before my physical prime wears out...

A lot of things. All of this inspiration I once had to achieve certain ends jumped out the window with a rope tied to its neck. lol

I just need to find that drive again. Gotta get up and move before it is too late...

People never put expectations on me, because I was the introvert autistic aspergers kid. I suppose that was a benefit for being in school, no one expected me to do anything. Just for me to be in my little room and screw around. High school wouldn't have been that bad if I wasn't bullied and tormented by students and teachers alike.

My grade, my mom and my supporter both expect me to get all A in high school, but when I told them I got a B they both go err..... I actually also got a C in my subject but only my mom know. now I become more afraid of losing expectation more than failing the class.

My parents still think I am a straight A student like all of my other siblings; They expect me to be a valedictorian like my siblings too. Sadly, I am not (long story), but I still am an achiever. Haha...still, I crushed their dreams- my bad. Other than meeting their expectations, there really isn't anything much. *sighs*

Largely my intelligence. They set me off with the gifted and talented group in Elementary school, but I disappointed the hell out of them when I wasn't motivated to do what they expected of me. If it wasn't something I was interested in I didn't do it and I did not do anything. So they dropped me back in regular classes and pretty much ignored me from then on, but that's OK because I give as much as shit on what they thought of me now as I did then, NONE AT ALL.

I'm not really that smart, I know I'm asian but I don't like to study at all only playing football. I love playing football, it's my thing. Workout to get bigger for football. And I'm the only asian who's on the team, I'm not a kicker. I'm a free safety/cornerback#27. It makes me happy.

My parents wanted me to be a doctor or nurse. Guess who isn't gonna beeeeee.

Well, I've always been expected to get good grades and shit and go to college, which I did.

I'm majoring in pre-med right now, trying to go to med school. I guess I've been told I should do that, but since I want to anyway it works out.
