Women are raised to be "Type A's"; they are perfectionists who make all their roles priorities. And then we further stress ourselves by overscheduling and refusing to drop old roles simply because we've picked up new ones. If you work outside the house, you still come home and are in charge of dinner and the children and the social life and the laundry.... Typically, a woman won't rest until the whole world can see that she is exhausted, until everyone else gives her permission to stop. What a woman has to do is give herself that permission.
