Great Expectations (Not the Book ... But Just as Friggin' Heavy)

Show us someone who says their expectations have aligned perfectly with their reality and we'll will show you a lying liar!

Growing up, relationships, career, self-identity ... we all have expectations at the start. Whether these expectations are self prescribed or put on us by others, Kendall explains why it's important to recognize that life changes things - and we must adjust our (great) expectations if we EXPECT some mental peace.
