The past few months I have been doing what I always wanted to do before adulthood.
1) working out daily
2) drawing daily, as I have always enjoyed arts
3) studying Korean, Japanese and brushing up on my French.
The past twenty years of my life have been about doing things for others, trying to survive and hiding the true me. So, every time my true nature came out, I was ridiculed by people closest to me.
This is a very emotional topic for many us working moms. Both work and home demand the same of us——to put them first on our list. Unfortunately, after giving everyone a part of ourselves, moms begin to lose ourselves completely. The resentment and frustration of not being heard becomes a ticking time bomb!
Growing up as an Asian female, we are taught to “shut up and put up”. Why is that? I, for one, am fighting this archaic stereotype everyday.
