In America, women receive all kinds of messages of what they "should be". These messages place a heavy load on women, creating a standard that is unrealistic. The most difficult part of this burden is that they feel as if they must carry it alone. As Brené Brown puts it, for women, the message is "Do it all perfectly, and don’t let them see you sweat." But at LifeSong, we walk along side women, pouring out sweat and tears together to create healing.
These messages and expectations can cause an overwhelming sense of anxiety, depression, or low self-esteem. They may lead some to develop coping strategies, such as eating disorders, affairs, or over performance to help quiet the whispers of inadequacy, but in actuality they hinder them from living into their authentic self. At LifeSong we come alongside women to help identify the source and content of the defeating messages and strategies. We walk with women as they discover the impact on current day-to-day living and empower them to find new, more satisfying methods for healthy living and healthy relationships. In a society where women can be sidelined because of their gender, we offer a safe place for women to be seen, heard, and valued.
