Know Your Limitation

Who is the best person to identify yourself? It’s You! Simply being open to yourself about your limitation when doing things. It is the best way for you to avoid stress and stay innovative.

Starting to Believe in Others

We know that people let us down so many times, but it doesn’t mean that you must carry it all alone. A group task is made to fostering human to socially collaborate and learn the idea of “consensus”. Think twice of why you want to handle everything on your own because the line between selfish and selfless is very slight.

Trying to “say NO”

Some of us are having a hard time when it comes to rejecting a favor, we’re afraid to judging as an unhelpful person. But you need to remember that, it might be helpful to keep yourself on track. We need to admit that, we’re not always available for other, because of the coincidence itself.

Getting Help from Others

Applying feminism in life–doesn’t mean that asking and getting a help from other is a degrading act for your self-independency. Like the first point, we have a limit and to reach the standard you set for yourself. You probably need hands from people, even at least just in form of suggestion.

Don’t Avoid Your Inner Circle Opinions

One of the most things that occur women with Superwomen Syndrome is we don’t want to take the blame on us. Why? We think it was a sign of failure. Girls, you need to also listen and look in the mirror of what you’ve done or what kind of people you’ve turned into.
So, if before you already defying yourself suffering Superwomen Syndrome, we hope this thing will help you.
Like how the English proverb said: “Discretion is the greater part of valor.”
