We often find our focus changing after the age of forty.

Sometimes, in our busy lives, this is our first opportunity to explore what we want, how we feel, what’s really important to us, and who we have become.

When was the last time you thought about your internal and external expectations?   What do you hold yourself responsible for and beat yourself up if you don't cover all of it perfectly?  What do others hold you responsible for?  Is it fair, equitable and reasonable? 

if something goes wrong or extra effort is needed, who looks after that?  Do you jump into action because nobody can do it for you?  Do others look at you and expect you to jump to attention because that's what you do and everything is your responsibility? 

who do you attract?  We attract people we think we need.  If you only feel worthy by being a martyr, then you'll attract needy people who suck the energy out of you.

Why Women Let Themselves Go

Women aren't on their own list of priorities.
After taking care of everyone else, they are always putting themselves last on the list, and often have very little left to give. There are many women who aren't living—they are just existing. This is a form of self-abuse. Women often wear their exhaustion as a badge of honor. The more you do for your loved ones, the more acceptable it becomes to "let yourself go." Women believe it's okay to become a "sacrificial lamb" within their own families. This is a lie that we allow ourselves to buy into, but we need to wake up! The challenge for women is that they must re-language what it means to be a wife and mother. Being a good wife and mother means that if you don't take care of yourself, in the long run you are ultimately harming all the other people you love in your life. You won't be the only one who takes the hit.

Fear of Competition.
Media and society frequently tell women we need to portray ourselves as "together" and be able to perform any task thrown our way. But when women look at the reality of how overwhelmed they feel in their own lives, they begin to feel like they are not good or worthy enough. Women often see other women who look like they are "doing it all"—and then when they compare themselves, they become overwhelmed and feel inadequate. It's not easy to face feelings of inadequacy so women usually end up avoiding them. But women need to know you can't show up in your own life if you are on the run. They tell themselves they are too tired and burdened to compete with others so they don't believe they have the power to change anything. Then they "drop out" of the game—they give up and let themselves go.

Unresolved anger contributes to letting go.
Sometimes women "drop out" because they don't know how to send a verbal message that says, "Get off my back." They have unresolved feelings of anger or rage toward someone or about something so they "let themselves go" to express that. When women give up on themselves, they are often sending messages of anger and it could be because of something traumatic that happened in the past or because of unhappiness in a current relationship…like with a parent, husband, or child.

We let fear take over. 
Women become paralyzed in their lives and let themselves go because of an underlyingfear . A fear of rejection, a fear to accept how they really feel about themselves, a fear of facing the idea that they aren't enough, a fear of accepting how others may feel about them. They let the fear take over and let other people determine their own self worth. The internal barometer that gauges, guides and directs your life as an empowered woman—that makes you know you are enough and okay—is broken and needs to be fixed.
