"Fake it till you feel it"
"I wish I were strong enough to ignore what others say, but experience tells me I often can't. Allowing myself to feel upset, even really upset, and then move on."
"When you want to change things, you can't please everyone. If you do please everyone, you aren't making enough progress."
"I want to apply to work with you at Facebook. So I thought about calling you and telling you all of the things I am good at and all if the things I like to do. Then I figured that everyone was doing that. So instead, I want to ask you: What is your biggest problem, and how can I solve it?" Lori Goler
Most women believe and research suggests that it is not a good idea to cry at work. It is never something that I plan to do and is hardly recommended in The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People, but on those rare occasions when I have felt really frustrated, or worse, betrayed, tears have filled my eyes. Even I have gotten older and more experienced, it still happens every so often.
Maybe someday shedding tears in the workplace will no longer be viewed as embarrassing or weak, but as a simple display of authentic emotion. And maybe the compassion and sensitivity that have historically held some women back will make them more natural leaders in the future. In the meantime, we can call hasten this change by committing ourselves to both seek and speak our truth.
