Today's May Challenge post is about uncomfortable moments. I fully believe that awkward moments are only awkward if you make it that way. Some moments are harder to not make awkward than others. So I guess I should talk about one that is hard for me.
I am uncomfortable when I am not respected as a woman. I know that I am an independent woman and that I have the power to do anything that I set my mind to. I also will usually throw myself into what I do with my full heart and get very passionate about it. Sometimes this passion is blamed as being too feminine, too emotional, or too witchy (and maybe sometimes with a b). So I get uncomfortable when I am told I am being too emotional about the situation. And it gets even more uncomfortable when I am the only woman in meetings and the only woman on the faculty....like I am being singled out.
Do other women in the business world ever feel this way?
