    ooh ... I can really relate to this! Having seen the effects of both kinds of parenting though (I'm making an assumption that this is a parent?) ("I expected better of you" vs "I have zero expectations of you") ... I've come to the conclusion that parenting, and striking a balance between the two approaches is very hard, and the consequences of getting it wrong can be disastrous. As you know, it can take many years to build self-esteem back up. Thanks for sharing such a relatable and 'thinky' piece :-) x
