High Expectations, Unreasonable Expectations

We need to encourage people’s high expectations. That’s a part of good counseling, to have high expectations of people.

Yet we need to explain to each other continually about having unreasonable expectations, or confusing theoretical ideals with present practice. They are two different things. Each one is perfectly valid and all right, but we get into trouble if we confuse the two.
