Overgiving and Burnout

In episode 5, Kate and Betsy talk about the “human giver syndrome”, and how women are conditioned from an early age to be generous and attentive to the needs of others at the expense of their own needs and ambitions. They discuss ways to counteract this innate tendency, the importance of talking about it, and how to do things that feel good.
