In spite of what my dad said about me being obsessed about "everything", I am not. I will admit to hyper-focus. I get presented with things and I go into overdrive to learn more about whatever it is, and act accordingly. It really is the only power we get sometimes. You could argue that I get frustrated either because I can't learn fast enough or I can't do what I need to, not through my own fault, but because I need to rely on someone else or for pieces to fall into place. So yes, I get stressed, but I think it would be worse if I did nothing or less than I think I should.
So are my expectations too high? Perhaps. Perhaps not. Today, my personal goal is to figure out ways to carve out some happiness. There are two main stumbling blocks: lack of time in the day and lack of money. I get pretty close to despair when I read articles about finding more of each because the articles usually mention taking action I've already incorporated in my life and there still isn't enough.
Still, I can prioritize and that is really the goal for the day. I need to pick and chose the "have to/ want to/would like to eventually".
