Meeting Theme: Expectations
As women and girls, we have many expectations set upon us by our loved ones, our country, and even our faith. While some of these expectations give us purpose and a future to aspire to, others become a burden that we bear. These include how we are expected to look or wear, the words we use, the career we choose, or the partner we end up settling with. Sometimes, we also pass down these expectations to others, perhaps on our friends, spouse, or child. We expect these things because society expects them of us.
What do these expectations look like to you? Which ones affect you the most? Which do you carry with pride? Are they any you want to shed? What about the expectations you put on others?
