High expectations

people sometimes expect much out of either themselves, or other people. Has there ever come a time where you crumble under the pressure, and just cannot live up to the status others have set for you?

I am my own worse enemy when it comes to standards ...the standards I set for myself are sometimes just way to high to acheive ... as for setting standards for others i try not to do that as they are there own person and only they know what they can and cannot do ... for my kids i set standards for school work and i try to help them to achevec that in any way i can ... even when they don't I still allow them some leeway to change the grades or bring them up ... make them set goals for themselves helps them ...
