    8 expectations that can destroy your relationship

    New Delhi, Dec 4 (IANSlife) It's no secret that relationships can be difficult. When it comes to relationships, expectations are often the key to success or failure. Expectations, if not met, can ruin even the strongest of bonds. When we set our sights too high, our partners can feel overwhelmed and pressured. Alternatively, when we set our sights too low, we may never be satisfied with what we get. As a result, expectations have the power to drive people apart or bring them together. At their best, they can help us understand what is important to the other person and give us the motivation we need to work through any challenges that arise. But at their worst, they can create unrealistic standards and lead us down a path of disillusionment and bitterness. In short, expectations play a powerful role in how well relationships flourish or disappoint; it is up to us whether we let them help or hurt.

Veganism was the minority of another minority class of vegetarians but is now enjoying the spotlight with the move towards conscious living gaining currency during the peak of the Covid-19 pandemic.
