“I get harassed at work too, but I can handle it.”
This is what I was told by a boss when I tried to report an abusive coworker. The contrast seemed obvious. The boss could handle the harassment, *unlike me.*
Throughout my years in the workplace, I was told again and again that I should be able to “handle” unrelenting long hours, harassment, and a pervading sense that my job was pointless.
After all, I was getting a paycheck. And no one likes a whiny millennial who wants special treatment at work!
I believed it.
I thought that I should buck up and learn to "take it" like the rest of my coworkers.
I no longer believe it. In fact, I no longer believe I have to handle anything that makes me miserable.
In the past few years, I learned that there are a million types of workplaces, and a million ways to make money and support yourself. And that the work life we want for ourselves is possible and in reach.
My clients and I are examples for what it possible in terms of a fulfilling work life. My recent client undid years of unhelpful behavior and set up boundaries with herself and her family so she could stay engaged throughout the workday. (No phone scrolling during the workday, no political talk from family, no fretting about her partner's job when she should be doing her own work, etc. etc.).
Another recent client changed her career path completely and even moved to a different country in order to be able to achieve a fulfilling work-life after years of feeling utterly exhausted.
My clients made these changes not over years, but over a few months.
I want every woman to have the option to create a fulfilling work-life.
It's time to say yes to healing your work life now, and I can help you to make that change through my 3 month coaching program.
If you’ve been depressed and hopeless about your work-life for far too long, you're not alone.
