Perform perform perform

We live in a society where you are judged by what you wear, what car you drive and where you go on vacation. And at the same time, we live in a society in which a woman has to perform just as well as a man. Because otherwise she doesn’t have the slightest chance of demanding the same salary. And this demand doesn’t stop when she becomes a mother. Then she has to reorganize herself. And those who decide to stay at home in order to be able to fulfill at least one job 100% – well, they are looked at critically, appreciatively, enviously or pityingly, depending on the situation.

To perform.

To constantly prove something to someone. First and foremost to oneself.

A society will not change from one day to the next. Not even if the number of burnouts among women is much higher than among men.

But you can change!

Ask yourself why. Where does this pressure come from? From the outside or from yourself? And what do you get out of it? Or better yet, what will change if you stop putting yourself out there? Worst case scenario, what will happen if you put the brakes on a little? No longer being available 24/7. No longer working countless hours of overtime. No longer trying to measure up to the men. Going your own way. Your own pace. Calling in sick when you feel sick. Saying no, despite a guilty conscience. Move yourself – if not to first place, then at least – a few places further forward.

What will happen in the worst case?
