Things women do that ruin their lives

In today’s fast-paced world, taking responsibility for our mental health is crucial, particularly for women who are often more in tune with their emotional selves. Understanding psychology, seeking therapy, and doing inner work can prevent many issues that might otherwise arise unnoticed.

This is exactly what we will talk about in today’s video.

When we neglect our mental well-being, we risk developing bad habits and facing preventable problems that can impact various aspects of our lives.

One significant benefit of being more psychologically literate is the ability to recognize harmful personality types, such as narcissists or psychopaths, that women might encounter more frequently.

Educating ourselves about these warning signs can save us from potentially dangerous or damaging relationships. While we are not psychologists and cannot diagnose others, awareness of these patterns can protect us and preserve our well-being.

Leaving a doomed relationship can be incredibly challenging, especially when comfort and convenience are at stake.

Women often find excuses to stay, rationalizing their circumstances even when they know the relationship is harmful.

It’s vital to recognize the long-term impact of staying in such relationships, including wasting precious years that could have been spent more productively.

This time is even more valuable for women who want to have children.

Reflecting on my twenties, I regret the time and energy I spent obsessing over men. There’s a famous scene in Sex and the City where it’s highlighted that women spend much more time analyzing men than vice versa.

This unproductive focus can be a coping mechanism that diverts attention from more fruitful pursuits.

Once I stopped overthinking relationships and invested my energy elsewhere, I started my business and built a successful career.

Unrealistic societal expectations also play a role in how we perceive our worth and capabilities. Women today face immense pressure to excel in their careers, maintain a family, and manage countless other responsibilities.

While the choice to have a career or not should be respected, the current expectation to do it all is unrealistic.

Balancing these demands often leads to burnout and unfulfilled potential.

Elon Musk’s concerns about low birth rates in Western countries fail to consider the immense pressure on women to balance careers and family life. Many women, myself included, have chosen to prioritize our careers, sometimes at the expense of starting a family.

This societal expectation that women must contribute economically just as much as men while also bearing the unique responsibility of childbirth is unfair and unsustainable.

What truly saddens me is seeing women placing such unrealistic expectations on themselves. The pressure to be perfect in every role—career, home, and family—can be overwhelming.

Additionally, the criticism women face from other women, especially those who choose traditional roles, is disheartening. Feminism was supposed to be about choice, yet now it feels like we’re just chained to different expectations.

To combat these pressures, it’s essential to avoid putting unrealistic expectations on ourselves and to see beyond societal pressures.

Remember, worthiness comes from within.

When using social media, we must protect our mental space by being mindful of the content we consume. Limiting exposure to toxic platforms and focusing on positive influences can significantly improve our mental health.

Finally, improving financial literacy is crucial for women. Understanding finances and investing wisely can lead to better decisions and greater independence. This is an area where many women could benefit from more education and encouragement.
