I am a full-time housewife and a part-time professional, and I am not embarrassed about it nor do I need to justify my choice or feel like a second grade citizen, who stands much lower to the multitasking, super efficient professional women in the hierarchy of status.
I hate to answer this question
” So how do you keep yourself busy…must be getting quite bored na“
I don’t want to cover my being a housewife or give an undignified excuse; “Oh my kids don’t leave me with enough time these days, otherwise before my child’s birth I was working.”
Hello! Why should I cover it up.
I feel like giving them a piece of mind; “Listen I am not wasting my time or getting bored or living an undignified , speck of dirt life, just because I am a housewife”. I have my priorities sorted out. I will work as per my choice and passion. It is not always important to pick up a 9-5 high Glam job.I am a teacher, I love my job! I multitask as a content writer, I do lots of blogging and experiment with so many new ideas and explore things unlike you who sticks to one job, leaves her kids with maids and then perpetually lives a hypocrite confused life.”
Ok I am not against women who work, I have high regards for them. All I want is, do not measure smartness and personality of a woman based on the undignified common notion of “Oh , a housewife” .
Here I recall an incident: This was the time when I was working. I had a weird fear of travelling alone in an airplane. A relative of mine tried to cheer me up by saying; ” Hey! Don’t behave like a typical housewife. You are much smarter”
WTH! Is this the generic notion in society, housewife is unsmart, dependent women?
I think I am content, my family is happy and I work at my free will. I have both money and job satisfaction. Isn’t it a good bargain? Work from home.
What do you think?
