How do you manage other people's expectations of you?
You can't.

All you can do is to be clear in your own mind about what you are able to do, and communicate that clearly to them. Then if someone asks you to do something that doesn't work for you, tell them. Just say, "I'm sorry, but I don't do that." Don't try to explain why. That never works. They will not listen to it anyway.

Bottom line is, you can't please everybody. Once you realize and accept that, you will have more peace of mind.
