Is Being Superwoman Killing You?

This week I had the opportunity to speak with a potential client and she informed me that she was on the verge of breaking down. My heart went out to her because I knew what she is going through. I don’t know why but it seems as though as women we think we are Superwoman.

Maybe as little girls we looked up to Superwoman and subconsciously we have been trying to live up to this myth. The truth is that being a superwoman will kill you.

During our conversation, my potential client also shared with me that she really wanted to attract a man; however, she couldn’t seem to find the time. Does this sound like your situation?

As women, we are natural helpmates. That is one of our many purposes; however, there comes a point when you must say no.

Say no to the family members who are constantly stealing your time.

Say no to those friends who always want your help and for you to listen to their problems.

Say no to the demands of your job.

Say no to your children.

Say no to the situations that are draining you dry.

For a very long time it was hard for me to say no to people, especially family and friends. I continued to travel this path until one day I was spiritually, emotionally and physically drained; I felt miserable.

Then I had an epiphany. I was pouring all of my energy into everyone else and no one was pouring anything back into me.

This was a huge ‘aha’ moment for me. So since that day, I have made certain changes in my life to prevent myself from becoming a Superwoman.

I know you’re probably reading this to yourself and saying, “Erica how is this going to help me attract a man?” Well, if you’re spiritually, emotionally, and physically drained you’re not going to be attractive, you’re not going to have the energy to date, and no man is going to want to be around you; and if you do attract a man it’s going to be someone that you don’t want.

So  here are a few tips that will help you live a well balanced life so that you can have the energy and time to attract Mr. Right.
