From sexist or outright sexual harassing remarks to catty behaviour, I realized the female experience in the workplace is not equal to that of our male counterparts.
Just like in my workouts, I adjusted my breathing and my mentality to get through it, reset, and prepare for the next part of the session.
The pressure I feel to perform better across all aspects of my life is breathtakingly overwhelming.
I contemplated the busyness and the hours I’ve lost worrying about whether or not I’m “doing it right” or “doing it well enough”.
If all else fails, bribe everyone with cookies and candy.
