The Myth of Doing it All
I used to have this perception that I was fully in control of my life.
Then I had kids.
After becoming a first-time mum, I struggled to cope emotionally with the expectations I had placed on myself. I constantly felt guilty about going to work. I felt sick about every decision I made. I agonised over what other people were doing, particularly if they were able to embrace a type of freedom I didn’t have. I never felt good enough.
My life was, in a word: chaos.
I know that so many women out there feel the same way. Thanks to social media, there is this enormous pressure to be everything all at once: a good homemaker, a career woman, a nurturing parent. And a kind friend to oneself.
Now, I want to bust that myth once and for all.
In this episode, I share my experience with trying to ‘do it all’ and the emotional impact it left on my life. Along the way, I reveal how we can let go of perfection and move forward without letting our past get in the way.
