You’ve worked hard to get as far as you’ve gotten in life, but it’s exhausting. All around you, people with more privilege and opportunities seem to be having a far easier time achieving the external success you strive for.
Like me, you’ve always known that as a person of color, you’ll have to work twice as hard to get half as far as your white counterparts.
It sucks. It’s fucking maddening. Here you are, a perfectionistic overachiever trying to thrive in a world that isn’t set up for your success. So, you keep your head down and work hard again, knowing that it’s what you need to do. But holding in the frustration gets to you when you stop. You find yourself ruminating on negative thoughts and resentments. And that affects your mood, self-confidence, and relationships.
Believe me, I’ve been there. And, it was therapy that changed it all for me. Therapy was always my best investment, and I'm passionate about making sure it'll be your best investment as well.
