Reminding myself to be honest that I can’t do everything, to be grateful for the opportunities that come my way but I don’t always have to say “yes” to them, and to communicate my boundaries to the people they affect.

This is so important and holds true for so many folks, especially those socialized to be women! Making yourself always available, always ready to drop everything to help others, happy to sacrifice their own success, and always likable is how cultures describe woman’s role in society. The unlearning takes time, sadly. I’m happy that you’re so aware of this, though!

Also, you rock ✨ thank you for sharing your thoughts and experiences!
