By | Self Love & Empowerment | No Comments

 

My profession is a bit of a contradiction.

 

Life coaching is all about self-improvement. Get up early! Be productive! Think positive! Get the job! 

But it’s also all about self-acceptance. You’re beautiful the way you are! They should love you for you! 

Of course, those examples are exceptionally easy. Accept what you cannot control, and improve on what you can. Read More

By | Self Love & Empowerment | One Comment

 

“I find in general people have very little understanding of who they are; one has to turn a blind eye to so much of oneself in order to get through life.”

-The Crown, Season 1.


 

I love that quote.

It so beautifully sums up how unique and tough it is to really get to know yourself. Self-discovery is not for the faint of heart, as I’ve found out personally and professionally. Read More

female double standards

The Double Bind:

An emotionally distressing response as a result of two conflicting messages

Yeah, I think we know something about that.

Call it what you want: Hobson’s choice, a Catch 22, damned if you do, damned if you don’t—whatever figure of speech you prefer, it’s all the same. Society expects one thing, but then demands another. Exhausting.

While I absolutely despise any stereotype out there about any female EVER – I have to say that I think I am beginning to understand why this whole “desperation” might have a little bit of truth to it. Read More
