I’m a recovered Superwoman and I write that with joy. I have no desire to go back to the unsustainable Superwoman lifestyle. I was beyond burnt out and unhappy! For me, I now value simplicity. Simplicity that means eliminating the unessential and adding the meaningful.
I don’t know why it took me so long. Over 35 years! What I’ve observed looking back, and at this point in time, is that it’s taking many women just as long. And unfortunately, some women never arrive.
Even in the mist of trying to say “no”, I’d begin explaining how I could probably squeeze IT in. Or I’d suggest ways I’d help before being asked. It felt like a curse!
