I’ve not agreed to all these rules
All these expectations,
And so many self imposed.
Do I stay at home?
To cook and clean and care for kids,
Or do I go to work and break some balls?
Use my head and stretch my intellect?
It’s quite the dark conundrum
That’s left me feeling lost.
Firstly, happy International Women’s Day! It’s really nice to take a bit of time out and appreciate some of the women who have led the way for all of us following behind.
But I did want to use today’s post to voice my own worries over what I’m doing with my life and whether it’s amounting to a worthwhile life.
Women today have this awful battle in choosing whether to take on the traditional role of housewife and stay at home mother, or go out and forge a career. Pick either one and someone will make you feel guilty. And try to strike a balance and you feel like you’re letting everyone down.
I’m not complaining, as I think that, as women, we are living in an exciting time. But it would be nice if we could just make up our minds and skip the judgement part.
Whatever you’re doing with your life, enjoy it and dont let anyone tell you that you are doing it wrong. I can assure you that you are smashing it either way!
