Fitting into a box or vision of how you should be

I struggle when people expect you to respond to an event in a particularly way, obviously as a child we are looking for particular things but all children develop differently.

If we look at grief and the stages that it is thought we might go through, it is important to understand that grief is different for each individual and we shouldn't make assumptions about what someone is thinking and feeling.

I have seen the effect this can have with mothers who are worried as something that other people are saying should work isn't working for their child and the impact of thinking something may be wrong because of this.

I am interested to know other people's thoughts and experiences of having other people, professionals or the media expecting you to behave a particular way.
