Remember, Ginger Rogers did everything Fred Astaire did, but she did it backwards and in high heels. ~~ Faith Whittlesey
That’s right! Ginger Rogers was amazingly good at what she did, so are we. It takes courage for women to acknowledge how good we are at what we do. We are caught in a strange cultural expectation of having to simulatneously competent and passive. This often results in a kind of humility that really is a denial of our expertise.
Also, women who do too much seem to vaccilate between exaggerating our competence and feeling that we are worthless and totally incompetent. This vacillation between extremes is part of the addictive disease.
The real test of cpurage is being realistic and letting ourselves know that we are really competent at many things.
BEING GOOD at what we do isn’t a curse. Its a gift that comes from ourselves and from a power greater than ouselves.
