As women, we strive to be selfless. We are loving and dependable mothers, wives and partners. We are caring daughters who support our parents in their older years. We are the strong shoulder that our friends lean on in times of trouble. But sometimes, we take it too far and carry other people’s burdens until we become overwhelmed by the weight of the heavy load. Why do we do this? Because it’s what’s expected of us?

No sooner than “Ugly Betty” announced its final bow did Vanessa get a lucrative gig on Wisteria Lane.
