If your smile on the inside does not match your smile on the outside,
You are a strong and curious woman who works hard. You are motivated and grateful, and even proud of your accomplishments. You smile, you're energized, and you inspire energy in others. You spend a lot of time working on yourself, consuming online articles, videos, and the latest "self-help" books (if you have a huge bookshelf, you know exactly what I mean).
You're learning about meditation, empowerment, and breaking free from limiting beliefs. You're using the most sought after oils and buying the latest health trends. And it all seems to work, at least at first. Don't get me wrong, these things are good. But eventually, it feels like nothing really changes long term. In the process, you end up feeling exhausted, depleted, and even disheartened at times. And then you get up the next day and do it all over again.
You even connect with friends and family, and network with co-workers but deep down, you don't feel a real sense of connection with others. Something about it feels off, which then makes you feel lost and frustrated. It's a sense that you're missing something but not sure what. All the stuff you've learned makes sense but it's still not working out the way you thought. And then you feel guilty for feeling bad. After all, your life is good.
