    Why You Should Stop Being a Lone Wolf

    What’s not working for most women I know is being a lone wolf, trying desperately to figure out life or how to achieve your goals on your own because you’re too [insert whatever shameful thing you tell yourself here]. You’re dying inside because you desperately want to be more, do more, have more. Maybe you’re stuck in a loop of lack of self-care.
