No! In this case, it’s being so scared of let’s say, ending up in a dead-end job, that you raise all hell to find and keep one you like.
I think there are 3 parts:
- “Running away” from things you really dislike in areas that are important to you (aka work, love, friends, where you live).
- Having high expectations of yourself in those important areas once you’ve made sure you’re not doing something you hate and pushing yourself to accomplish them (aka turn a good job into a great one)
- Cultivating low expectations around things that don’t matter too much (clothes, the restaurant you want to go to being full or closed, a traffic jam).
Thank you so much for your comment, it actually made me refine my own thinking on it more, maybe I’ll sort of rewrite this with these 3 paths in mind!
