Confessions of a Recovering Striver
Whit's Adventures and Blog
Welcome, friend! I'm Whitney Roehl (my inner circle calls me, "Whit") and I'm a recovering Striver. What is a striver?
For me, it was constantly aiming for perfection as a wife, mom, entrepreneur, church leader, and in self-growth. But nothing was ever "good enough". I constantly needed to do more, to have more, so I could feel deserving of love.

Grief is a weird but necessary part of life. No one escapes this emotion. Grief is a deep sorrow, especially caused by someones death. It's strange too because different people handle this process very differently. If you've ever experienced grief, then you're aware of how complex...
