SUPERWOMAN SYNDROME

Before we go too far, let’s be clear with the definition first. Quoted from Dr. Madeline Ann Lewis on selfgrowth.com, Superwoman Syndrome is a syndrome that women are constantly striving to accomplish everything possible in a perfect manner and have not learned how to put themselves as a top priority.
 
So, if that definition makes you wonder, let’s identify you with Superwomen Syndrome symptoms below;
 
1. Do you want to do everything perfectly without exception?
 
2. Do you find it hard to say “No”?
 
3. Do you think that you can do all or most things in your life just by your own?
 
4. You’re feeling down every time you can’t do something or you’re not doing it as you wish?
 
5. Are you happy with yourself? and how good are you think you’ve taken your roles?
 
Those five questions may help you to identify yourself. If the answers are mostly “Yes” then you actually lie to yourself that you’re happy all this time. You need to take a break on yourself for a few minutes. You need to look back–what went wrong with the great things that were good but whip a happiness.
