Why Are So Many High Achieving Girls Unhappy?

Rachel Simmons | Posted 05.20.2015 | Parents
Rachel Simmons

can't say I ever gave much thought to happiness. I come from a family where happiness was seen as an "extra," a kind of frill to life -- nice to have, but certainly not necessary and by no means paramount. Work was king. Suffering meant you were working hard. It made you worthy.

I remind myself that dumb and bold are two sides of the same coin, and that you can't get one without the other.

Our success depends on many external factors, but inner peace depends only on ourselves! The question is never "Am I worthy enough or good enough" because the answer is always yes. The question is: "Am I willing to invest my time, energy and effort until I find the way to make my dreams a reality".
