5 thoughts on “The Ambiguity in Women’s Lives

  1. Hi Tabby,

    This is a very good question, and I too struggle everyday with the conflict of being “saved” vs. having an independent life/career. I don’t know what the answer is, and would love to hear if someone has somehow made it work or been able to combine the two. I look forward to sharing what we find.


  2. Thanks Ingrid for sharing. I’d like to hear from more women about this too. I think as we share our stories, the answers will start to reveal themselves — and more self-compassion will arise (which I think is one of the answers to the issue). I think so much of what women struggle with is feeling like they are the only one going through a certain something. When they share, there is a powerful healing that takes place. That’s my 2 cents.


  3. Hi Tabby,
    Your blog got me thinking about the old saying “perfect is the enemy of good.”. If anyone- women included – tries to judge themselves by many standards they will be unhappy.Wanting to be protected is a basic human need but certainly one can’t let that urge take over and eclipse the rest of life. I look forward to your blogs!

  4. Hi Tabby,

    I wonder, would it be less of stress for women who were trying to work and raise families, if we were actually paid equally? AND men and women both are not paid to meet the cost of living. Horrid statistics indicate we are earning about what we did back in the 70s, when you adjust for inflation…

    Just found your blog – looking forward to reading more soon,
