You’ve done everything the way that you’re supposed to—you’ve completed your education, you have a wonderful career, and great friendships. Anyone who knows you sees you as successful and competent. It’s hard to understand why, despite how hard you’ve always worked, you feel as if all your accomplishments have happened by chance and why you’re constantly having to prove yourself every day. The pressure of having to perform at the highest level at all times and in all areas of your life feels overwhelming and sometimes immobilizes you. Anxiety, overthinking, fear of failure, and perfectionism feel like weights that are keeping you from fully enjoying your life. To top it all off, you’re also struggling with romantic relationships and may have wondered if you’ll ever feel fulfilled in that area of your life. Who can you talk to who will understand the nuances of life as a high-achieving woman struggling with anxiety behind the scenes?
Life doesn’t have to stay this way.
