The gist of Sandberg's idea is to encourage women -- through "circles," lectures, forums, and other forms of support -- to lean in to their careers, to work toward achieving positions of leadership in government and industry. For the last few months, I've been part of a lean in-esque women's group that gets together once every six weeks to discuss mostly career and work-related women's issues and to support one another in our various endeavors. While I'm all about achieving one's career dreams, as a dating coach helping women create healthy, happy dating lives and relationships, I can't help but ask: What about love?Might it also be helpful for women to "lean in" to their love lives? Don't get me wrong; I'm not suggesting we turn back the clocks to the 1950s, nor am I saying women should sacrifice their career ambitions for love, but why should women's forward motion in the working world have to come at the expense of finding love?
Your doctor may also take a tissue scraping or culture of the blisters for examination in the laboratory.How about discussing together constructive ways to move forward and to create the love you want?As I write in my book : "When it comes to relationships and love, I truly believe that single women don't talk enough with each other about their real fears and struggles not only because they don't want to appear vulnerable but also for fear of (gasp!Does wanting love and a healthy, happy relationship as much as a challenging career signal weakness and dependency, as some women worry? And I think the bushels of successful career-women I know (lawyers, doctors, and investment bankers, oh my!) who worked simultaneously toward building both successful career and love lives (and who are now happily married) would say no, too.
