How many ways can I feel like an insufficient woman?

When you didn’t fight for me?

When I didn’t fight for me?

When I see a woman pile her five children into the car in the same amount of time it took me to pile my one child into the car.

When I stare at my computer all day, being neither busy or productive and just hoping for a sliver of inspiration to make me feel like it wasn’t a waste.

When I don’t deliver on the expectations I have placed on myself or allowed others to place on me.

When I don’t stand up for myself.

When I lower the bar of self-esteem, self-respect, self-trust, self-worth I’ve set for myself just enough for someone to spot the chinks in my armour.

When I lay my head on the bed exhausted at night just thankful I made it through the day.

How many ways can I feel like an insufficient woman?

Many apparently.
