    Thank you so much for this article! It felt like it was written just for me. I didn’t know that it was normal to feel this way. 😊

      @ Holly, you’re very welcome! Thank you for your comment. 🙂 I’ve definitely found that whatever we’re struggling with, we’re absolutely never alone. Someone is totally thinking the same thing—in fact, many someones. 🙂

    Thank you for this beautifully written and well thought blog. This is a really great reminder to everyone. I couldn’t help but think of myself and the millions of women who are so much like the persona in your blog. Ironically I must have printed off the article and because I’ve been so busy, doing things and beating myself up for not doing enough, I didn’t read it until this morning when I found it on my desk. As usual my first thought is who can I share this with that will benefit from it…and then I stopped and thought… ME, for once in my life recognize that it is ME who deserves to read this without the thought of who I need to give this to. I guess I am like a lot of other women who spend so much time helping others that I forget I’m a woman in addition to the numerous roles I hold. Thank you for the reminder.
