“I think every single person said at least one thing that I could fully relate to. From the expectation of being a high achiever as a child (which still cripples me today as an adult as a need to be ‘perfect’), to not finishing things because they are not ‘perfect’, to body shaming myself, to not being sure if the path I have chosen is for me or built to make someone else happy.
It was really enlightening and reassuring to hear that so many incredible women were struggling with the same things as me. It instantly made me feel less alone and at the same time made me feel more capable because it kind of put things into perspective for me. It helped me to see that these are things most of us struggle with at some point or another and simply being aware enough of these things, and self-aware enough to want to work on myself and figure out their roots is fucking powerful in itself. It definitely filled me with motivation and drive to continue to grow and continue to show up and go through this messy stuff in order to live a more fulfilled, aligned and purposeful life.”
