Invisible work. Thankless jobs. When we talk about Emotional Labor these are some of the things we're talking about. If you've been following us on Instagram this week you've seen women say the following things regarding emotional labor:
- Emotional labor takes work. And emotional labor is not just for women to deal with
- Women are doing the extra work in your platonic/familiar relationships too.
- It's not our job to bear it for you. It's exhausting. We don't want to be your therapist.
Whew. Heavy right? Well it's important to understand how women and femmes have been feeling about emotional labor and why it's wrong for them to shoulder the burden of this.
So this week we discuss what emotional labor is, how it has showed up in our lives, but also give a few next steps as far as what we can do to close the emotional labor gap in our relationships.
