It’s Time To Lower the Bar
Hear me out. Your expectations are far too high, so it’s time to lower the bar. You deserve the chance to step back, review all the roles you play and the hats you wear, and reassess how you’re showing up. It’s likely time to give yourself some grace, lowering your standards to an achievable level and simultaneously acknowledging your incredible wins and contributions in countless places. In short, you need to be reminded that you are most certainly enough. Already.
