The Problem with Girl Boss

The Problem With "Girl Boss" We need to retire the terms "girl boss" and "boss babe" asap. If you're like me, hearing the terms "girl boss" and "boss babe" make you cringe. When we use gendered and infantilizing language to describe a concept that isn't inherently gendered (like boss), we contribute to a greater problem - Sexism. Consider for a moment how ridiculous it would sound hearing Michelle Obama or Beyonce calling themselves girl bosses. Powerful, grown, highly successful women. The term was popularized in 2014 in a book by Sophia Amaruso (who, in 2022, tweeted a plea to stop using #GirlBoss). It was intended to embody feminism and empowerment, showing that women can do everything that men can do

Black History Month: Tyre Nichols, Internalized Racism, and Why We Should Celebrate this February

Black History Month: Tyre Nichols, Internalized Racism, and Why We Should Celebrate this February. Today marks the first day of Black History Month, and it comes on the heels of the death of Tyre Nichols. I want to take a moment to address some of the conversations I’ve seen on social media about the event. I’ll also take a moment to talk about Black History Month more generally. While I am not intending to take a political stand (because human rights are not political), I will talk politics for a moment. I recently read, from a conservative influencer on Twitter, that the liberals can’t call racism now because the officers who beat Tyre Nichols to death were all Black. Let’s

Millennials are how old?!

Millennials are how old?! A vast majority of millennials are now at least 30 years old. So, let's do some myth busting this fine Thursday afternoon! I often hear the term "millennial" thrown around in reference any young person, regardless of actual age, and it's frequently used in a negative connotation. So what is the actual generational breakdown? See below! The "Boomers" - Born between 1946 & 1964 Gen X - Born between 1965 & 1979 Millennials - Born between 1980 & 1994 Gen Z, a.k.a. "Zoomers" - Born between 1995 & 2012 Knowledge is power, and education breaks myths. All of the millennials I know are hard-working, driven people trying to enjoy their best lives. Let's give them the accolades

Imposter Syndrome is Literally Costing You Money $$$

Imposter Syndrome is Literally Costing You Money $$$ Most everyone has struggled with imposter syndrome at some point. That feeling rooted in failure that you're not good enough at what you do and that you're fooling people into believing you're better at your job than you really are; that your accomplishments happened by accident; that you are incompetent despite others' perception of your successes. It's an awful feeling. But did you realize that it's literally costing you money? The cost of imposter syndrome. Because you don't feel "good enough," you fear asking for the raise or promotion that you deserve You believe that applying for better-paying jobs is a waste of time because you don't deserve/aren't worthy of a better

Hacking Travel Anxiety in 6 Steps!

Hacking Travel Anxiety in 6 Steps! Let's be honest - Getting from point A to B when traveling can be stressful. Whether you're traveling for the upcoming holidays, for business, or just for fun, many of us experience anxiety on planes, trains, and in automobiles! So, what can you do to combat it? 1. Breathe! Deep breathing exercises can be powerful, and they're literally counterintuitive to our body's physical reaction to anxiety. When we're anxious, we can experience things like increased heart rate, nausea, and shallow breathing. Focusing on deep breathing will counter our physical response to anxiety and help us reset. Breathe in slowly, hold it for 5 seconds, and then breathe out slowly. Repeat. 2. Find "Evidence" If you

Gen Z: The “Woke” Generation

Gen Z: The "Woke" Generation. Is Gen Z really more sensitive, can't take a joke, [insert whatever other big negative assumption someone may make], or are they really just kinder and more culturally attuned? I would vote for the latter, and here's why: Gen Z and Millennials get a bad rap. The generation who raised them taught and forgot. They wanted their children to be kind, sensitive, and socially responsible. When they did those things, they were called snowflakes. But are they really the generations of snowflakes? No. They are culturally competent, outspoken, and politically savvy. They voice their opinions and they're not afraid to talk about once-off limit topics. They Are More Comfortable Talking About Mental Health Mental health

Let’s Get to Know Each Other!

Let's Get to Know Each Other! Hey there! I'd like to take a moment to introduce myself to you and explain a little about why I think you should give me a follow and read my content! Who Am I? I am Caitlin, and I am a mental health professional. I currently live in the Tampa, Fl area with my husband and two senior pugs. I grew up not far from Cleveland, Ohio, and moved to Florida for sunnier weather after I completed undergrad in 2010. Speaking of undergrad - I have a bachelor's and master's degree, both in psychology, which have given me an excellent educational background in all-things psychology, mental health, the human brain, and research.
