Something important I wish I’d learned sooner … I wish I’d learned to be feminine at work. I think men like it best when you are a “lady.” You need to be confident enough to know that you do know the right answer, while respecting their need for you to look up to them due to their fundamental insecurity. This is a hard trick if you drive yourself hard and are naturally aggressive.
I really messed up … Even though I know that no one ever lost weight because their mother told them to, I can’t help asking my daughter how much she weighs every time we talk and expressing disapproval when she overeats. How do I get a break?
