The star’s life story is tragic.

Hey, we all know how important strong female role models are right now. However, rather of feeling empowered, acclaimed novelist Danielle Steel’s most recent interview with Glamour left us feeling scolded and disheartened.

In reality, it’s pretty much everything that contributes to the delusion that “moms need to physically do it all” and causes so much anxiety and misery in so many of us.

Despite having published 179 novels and having nine children, the best-selling novelist argues that exhaustion and the need for a break are “millennial diseases.” We sincerely apologize. Ms. Steel, I take offense since this writer is a Gen Xer who appreciates sleeping.
