As Catherine Baab-Muguira so eloquently puts it, “we’re the generation who were raised with a “you can be whatever you want to be” ethos that met the worst job market in years”. We feel we have to overcompensate and overwork to feel like we’re achieving something… anything.
Some days you thrive, and others you merely survive. Some days you want to lean in, and others you want to just lie the fuck down. It’s impossible to be everything for everyone. But if you treat yourself with a little more acceptance and understanding, you’ll find you have so much more to give.
