Three smart, well-educated and talented young women in their late 20s are crushing their careers and their lives. Yet why for so many years, despite all of their success, did they constantly say they are sorry and worry that everyone will think they are dumb if they make a mistake or say something silly? In this interview, see what they have done to overcome this self-doubt and how giving themselves permission to make mistakes has helped.
In the group discussion below, Ashley, Joyce and Samantha also explain how between them they are overcoming anxiety, depression, OCD, an eating disorder and ADHD. They explain how mental health concerns, especially ADHD and depression, are often missed in high achieving young girls and how ADHD, OCD and eating disorders, as well as depression and anxiety, can interact to feed off each other. Also discussed is the role that medication and therapy has played in helping them not only overcome, but thrive.
