One of the most common things I hear from women is how their time in (big) law impacts their relationships. Essentially they say…
“My relationships suffer from the long hours, unpredictable schedule and always being on call.”
“I’ve stopped making plans with friends and family, because I’d just have to cancel.”
Almost universally this comes up.
What about your relationship with yourself? Does it boost your confidence, increase your self-reliance and make you proud of the work you do in the world?
Valentine’s Day it’s not just a once a year chance to look at the love in our life and appreciate it. We have that opportunity every day.
I’ve been married for 20 years (insert mind-blown emoji!). For me, marriage isn’t easy. It definitely takes tending, presence and time just to be together.
A benefit of doing WILL is an improvement in love relationships – with yourself and the people closest to you.
Success stories of women who left big law…
During a recent video session with WILL member Laura, she spoke happily about her husband and used the term “we” more than ever before. “We are having fun exploring. We have more time together.” I pointed it out, and she smiled broadly.
Gwen, left big law, driven by a vision to bake cookies with her daughters during Christmas week, without the billable hour hanging over her head.
This was her first holiday season in her new role. Not only did they bake cookies, but she and her husband took the girls up to NYC and went to the American Girl store. She was fully present to the experience, not stepping away to check emails or respond to clients.
Another Laura is planning a two-week trip to Italy with her husband and credits WILL. She said, “I used to worry what they would think. Now I don’t care as much. Life is short.”
