Being a woman is beautiful. But it can be difficult at times. There are many expectations from the environment, as well as unsolicited life advice and inappropriate comments about our appearance. That is something we are all aware of. This article is for those of you who occasionally feel overwhelmed. That they’re losing their minds. We’ll advise you on how to deal with the demands of others and make womanhood more joyful.

Partner, mom, daughter, colleague, friend…

We all have several roles in life that come with high expectations. And we women strive to meet them completely. We want to be loving spouses who create a sense of home, mothers who provide the best for their children, daughters who don’t forget their parents, and coworkers who excel… And the list could go on and on.

Furthermore, we strive to keep ourselves fit, healthy, and well-groomed. Our looks is also held in great regard. A woman is supposed to be beautiful.

And yet we often feel like we are not doing “enough”. That we should try harder, that we should accomplish more… Where did this belief originate? Why do we frequently put our self-worth on what we (do) not do? You’re already doing more than enough, believe me.

Try to stop yourself the next time you start beating yourself up about all the things you didn’t get done or didn’t manage to do. Take some time for yourself, take a few deep breaths, and think about all you’ve done recently. Even the slightest accomplishments. Are they a small number?

We frequently place the highest expectations on ourselves.

Yes, our roles in life entail expectations. However, we quite often lay greater demands on ourselves than on those around us. Even studies demonstrate that women are perfectionists. And far more than men. In a nutshell, we’re harsher on ourselves. We want to be the best mothers, partners, and friends we can be, to keep our homes clean, to avoid chips and chips in an arc, to look like something out of a fashion magazine, and to fill in the blanks with anything we want.

But, despite what advertisements and social media may suggest, this is just not achievable. Even the ladies you admire on the internet can’t do it all by themselves. They may be able to exercise on a regular basis and prepare their own meals, but they do not have children or a grandma to care for them on a daily basis. Or they manage to develop their own business and be visible online, but their personal life has fallen by the wayside and they no longer spend time with loved ones. You never get the complete picture.

How to make your life as a woman more enjoyable

If you identified yourself in the previous lines, we have four suggestions to make your life as a woman more enjoyable.

Be kind to yourself and change your inner dialogue

Try recording yourself talking to yourself from time to time. What are you saying to yourself in your head? Do you think “I look like that again” or “my wrinkles” when you gaze in the mirror? Do you tell yourself, “I screwed up again” when something goes wrong? You probably wouldn’t want to see your friend if she talked to you like that. But you spend your entire day with yourself.

So, instead of passing judgment on yourself, be your own greatest buddy and say something encouraging to yourself. It’s excellent self-esteem training. It may be difficult at first, so imagine what your friend, sister, or mother would say to you right now.


Work on your self-confidence and don’t let it steal your dreams

It’s in our DNA to be self-critical. Studies back this up. We’re always doubting ourselves and berating ourselves for every blunder. In actuality, we are far more powerful and capable than we give ourselves credit for.

However, this underestimating frequently hinders us from achieving our goals. We believe we are incapable of dealing with them. That it is an impossible assignment for us. Or perhaps undeserving. As a result, we don’t even allow ourselves to dream properly, or we postpone our dreams. When I understand this, when I have enough money to buy suitable equipment, when my children are older, when… Don’t let poor self-esteem prevent you from achieving your goals. Work on it and give yourself permission to pursue your own desires.

Women to women – let’s stick together

It’s not uncommon for folks around you to pass judgment on you as a woman. Previously, the hair was better. You’re certainly pregnant, as evidenced by your protruding belly. Is this how you raise your children? What’s the point of spending so much money? We can see it a lot on social media.

But each of us is trying our best at the time or for what we believe in. Let us remain together instead of condemning each other. I’m sure you understand how hurtful it can be when an insensitive statement hits a sensitive point. Let us stand up for one another instead of allowing others to criticize our appearance or way of life. We are all unique and live in unique ways, and that is the beauty of it.

Ask for help

Perfectionism is frequently associated with the belief that we can do everything ourselves. We’re not going to bother our partner or our mother, who lives across town. We can work, care for the children, clean, cook, and shop… But then we suffer only from our super-heroism. That is not acceptable.

Being stressed, overwhelmed, and always on the go is not a virtue. You don’t have to take all the responsibility on yourself. If your partner or family cannot assist you, hire someone to clean or babysit while you go out to eat. It’s absolutely acceptable. You and your well-being must come first; else, you will be unable to be there for others.

Is it truly too much for you, and you’re stuck? Then online therapies may be beneficial to you. With the help of a therapist, you’ll look for the source of the problem, which could be low self-esteem or old routines. You’ll discover a method to live life without unneeded tension and hurry. Even though it appears to be unattainable right now. You’ve earned it!

If you have a problem cohabiting with a partner who does everything for you, you can consider couples therapy. Therapies are available online, and your first session can begin as soon as tomorrow. We will refund your money if the therapy does not work for you.

Don’t face it alone

Finally, we would like to tell you the last and most important thing. It is completely natural to experience a wave of emotions in a difficult situation. Every crisis has its beginning, but it also has its end. Yours too. Therefore, if you are at least considering it even a tiny bit, ask for the help of a psychologist, psychiatrist, psychotherapist, or coach. Don’t face it alone; you can find help – At, there are more than 30 therapists. You can choose someone who is best suited to your needs, and make an appointment for the next day. You can then connect with the therapist online, from the comfort of your own home.
