23 Things Every Woman Should Stop Doing

I found a really interesting post recently called 23 Things Every Woman Should Stop Doing.

The blogger from “Be Free” summarized 23 items from a Huffington Post article and bolded the ones she is prone to doing. I’m going to do the same thing here but use red text for the ones that give me problems.

  1. Apologizing all the time;
  2. Saying “yes” to everyone else;
  3. Saying “no” to yourself;
  4. Viewing food as the enemy;
  5. Body-snarking – outloud or in your own head;
  6. Feeling like an impostor when you accomplish something professionally;
  7. Obsessively untagging every “unflattering” photo of you that ever existed online;
  8. Comparing your real life to someone else’s virtual one;
  9. Holding on to regrets and guilt;
  10. Wearing heels every day;
  11. Judging other women’s sex lives;
  12. Judging your own sex life;
  13. Trying to be “chill”;
  14. Fearing the label “crazy”;
  15. WebMD-ing everything;
  16. Worrying that your life doesn’t look like Pinterest;
  17. Fearing being alone;
  18. Being in relationships for the sake of having a relationship;
  19. Not taking advantage of your vacation days;
  20. Holding on to toxic friendships;
  21. Spending time with people out of obligation;
  22. Being embarrassed about your interests;
  23. Setting deadlines for major life events.

We all have work to do on ourselves and sometimes that internal brain-emotion stuff is the toughest to work through. If you’re a woman, try to reduce the number of items that you do. If you’re not a woman, hug the ladies in your life and remind them that they are amazing just the way they are.
