The Power of the Pause: When a Female Executive Can No Longer Hide Behind High-Functioning Anxiety and Depression

Ebony Stone

Ebony Stone is a mess! But no one would ever know it. Beneath the polished facade of a successful Female Executive is a woman on the brink of collapse. She gracefully navigates the corporate world, adorned with accolades and achievements, but inside, she's battling unseen demons threatening to dismantle her life-her marriage, friendships, relationships with her children, and even her physical health.


Being a high-powered Black woman in Corporate America comes with its own set of struggles-negotiating racial bias, navigating microaggressions, and bearing the weight of unrealistic expectations. Under relentless pressure to perform, Ebony's forced to hide her plight from her employer. Despite what progressive company cultures claim, a spiraling female executive in the workplace isn't a celebrated occurrence. But when she finds herself on the brink of a stroke, heart attack, or worse, therapy unveils a sobering truth-major depressive disorder and high functioning anxiety.


In this candid memoir, Ebony shares her journey of self-discovery and resilience as she reclaims her life from the grips of mental illness. With unflinching honesty and vulnerability, she invites readers to explore a transformative path of healing and introspection. Join Ebony as she navigates the turbulent waters of corporate life, offering a beacon of hope and inspiration for those who dare to Pause and confront the truth within.
