When All Else Fails, Lower Your Expectations.
No Need to be a Super Woman Any More
“When All Else Fails, Lower Your Expectations” was a bumper sticker I found when I was working on my dissertation, commuting to school, raising two little kids and generally too busy. I found the sentiment helpful and you may too.
As a woman going through divorce or re-emerging afterward, you owe it to yourself to reconsider the expectations you hold for yourself. This is especially true if you are a perfectionist fighting to maintain your perfectionism even if you are extremely busy. From the outside, you may look like Super Woman. However, on the inside, you may feel stressed, frazzled, overloaded, and overwhelmed.
