What is Superwoman Syndrome?

I was talking to a friend of mine over the weekend and she was lamenting about how she needed a break. In the past 5 years, she managed to work a full time job, get a graduate degree and have two kids. All on 4 hours of sleep a night, if she was lucky. And yet, this woman, who has accomplished multiple feats over the past few years, was hoping her husband didn’t notice that she hadn’t picked up the house today.

I was pretty sure I saw her Superwoman cape peeking out from under her shirt…

Everywhere you look women are struggling to juggle their roles as the perfect wife, mother, hostess, friend, volunteer, Martha Stewart home decorator, chef, chauffeur, business owner and more – leaving them feeling empty, disconnected and disillusioned. For many, the Superwoman cape has become a second skin and a part of the illusion of who we believe we MUST be in order to be love, appreciated and valued.  I’ve discovered that many of you yearn to remove the cape and release the illusion of doing it all but aren’t sure where to start.

I get it. I’ve been there. If you’ve been part of my tribe for a while, you know my story. 20 year battle with endometriosis and osteopenia. 24 year battle with an eating disorder. Entered natural menopause at 26 only to come back out at age 35. Four failed fertility treatments. Broke my heel twice in one year. Nearly died of pneumonia. I’ve been hit with more Cosmic 2x4s than I care to count. Until one day when I decided enough was enough.

It took me about a year, but I did it: I recovered from Superwoman Syndrome and I’m here to support you in doing the same. So what is Superwoman Syndrome?

Do Any of These Sound Familiar?

If you answered yes to any of those, You, my friend, have Superwoman Syndrome!

A path filled with self-love, self-acceptance, joy and inner peace – a sacred place of BE-ing where your inner light, life essence can shine brightly.
