Are you a child of an immigrant and experience immense pressure to be successful? Do you tie your worth to your productivity?
Well, let’s just say you’re in good company. Listen in to Part 1 of this Glow Up Season discussion as I welcome my friend Mariela, a Life Coach and Certified EQ Leadership Coach who helps women of color become purpose-driven leaders. Together, we talk about how to detach your worth from self-sacrifice and high achievement as a child of an immigrant while sharing a few personal stories that illustrate the unique characteristics and struggles of children of immigrants.
Knowing your family’s immigration story is empowering and inspires so much gratitude, but it can also become a weight that you carry to prove that it was all worth it. Having a great work ethic is important, but we also need to talk about how to rest without feeling guilty. Do you resonate?
