NICE GIRLS

Last summer I read a book called: ‘Nice girls don’t get the corner office – 101 unconscious mistakes women make that sabotage their careers.’ It’s basically about how women are conditioned to act like girls, and how they continue this behavior even in their professional life. While reading this book I felt a bit of a relief, maybe I should finally quit being a girl, even if it’s rewarding and easy and feels natural at times. I don’t cry at the office, but I do take notes, apply lipstick in public and make coffee for my male colleagues. I’m still not sure if I’m conditioned to act this way, or if I secretly enjoy sabotaging myself.
