I'd also really like to get a proper handle on my attachment to other people. I'll never get what I want, so I need to stop putting so much importance on people acting the way I want them to act. Basically, to not be so affected when things with other people don't go as I planned.
Those are both very nice goals.
The way I feel often dictates my life. When I have negative feelings, it seems that I become more and more of a negative person as a whole.
The second one, I can really relate to as well...I can't expect people to behave in the same manner as I do. While people that I care about sometimes do things that irk me, even though it's not entirely wrong...I just need to let it go and accept our differences which is why "try to understand the people I care about better" is one of my goals. Maybe another goal should be that I should also try to think more positively about the people I do not care about.
