Tired of being told to expect the worst.
Tired of being told happiness = the amount of money you make.
Tired of hearing, "You'll never be able to...."
Tired of worrying what others think of me.
Tired of trying to live up to expectations.
Tired of trying to please others. 
Tired of being told, "well, you're young, when you're my age you'll know what I'm talking about."
Tired of mine and others' complaining.
Tired of attitudes of entitlement. 
Tired of fighting the same battles every day.

Can someone please tell me:
