This is a personal narrative that I know I share with many other women - the struggle to find a balance between a career and motherhood.

For years, I experienced a lot of guilt and stress trying to meet maternal and professional expectations (both societal and my own) and still felt that I was coming up short. Distracted by this ongoing internal conflict, I started to lose sight of who I am beyond my roles and responsibilities and what I really want from this one life.

The undisguised, authentic truth of myself is represented by the third figure in the painting, neglected and waiting to be discovered.
