Just because women are generally better at balancing work and their personal life doesn’t mean they have to be perfect at it. And yet, it seems that’s what the world expects of us. Maybe it’s because research has found that women find social interactions more rewarding than men do. Or perhaps it’s just centuries-old misogyny at play that states a woman’s place is with the family. And that could also just mean with the boyfriend or with the friends. Whatever it is, I just know that men get away with neglecting their personal lives in favor of their careers so much more than women do. In fact, it’s sort of expected that a woman will have to nudge her partner to prioritize his relationship. But if a man has to nudge his female partner to do this, everyone is shocked. They say the poor man is neglected. Here are ways women feel much more pressure than men do to balance their work and love lives.
If a woman is career-oriented, people can often just call her a workaholic. And, look, there is such thing as being a workaholic, but I think this term is applied to women too liberally and too frequently. It seems in the eyes of many, women skip right ahead to the workaholic phase and few simply live in the career-oriented one.
