hi all

feeling very low. i left my job bcoz it was a bpo job. nd that was my 1st job. and my to-b-husband also didnt want me to continue my job. although i got an another job in banglore as an system analyst but my in laws didn't want me to go there. so i left my job nd happily agreed to b a housewife. but now i feel dat nobody respects a housewife. i again nd again feel that i shouldn't have left my job but bcoz now I'm a mother to an infant it seems very difficult for me to go for a proper job. i think untill I'll able to make money i wontb respected in my home or society.

what should i do?

hey anon hang in there. every mom has gone thru this phase. trust me - i thot i had lost my mojo. i took a 4 yr  career break and hated not earning. even if it takes time to get back to work its okay. trust me, spending time wth ur baby is worth the wait. to keep urself sane pls do an online course or something. whn ur baby is slightly bigger look for a work from home opening. tc. and dont feel low. tag me whenever u need to!

dont feel low. being a housewife is an immensely satisfying job.
would u go fr a low pay poor work ethics job only so tht u can show others u r working? tht wud b bad in the long run.
spend this time giving ur baby all ur love.
the notion tht housewives and stay at home mums r below or lower than working moms needs to change bcoz its demeaning the women who slog hard to take care of their house and family members.
enjoy this phase.

being a housewife is also a job just that there is no pay and sometimes no respect too. try not doing anything for a day or two, everybody will understand what u are doing for ur home and family. I feel it's time that we women take charge of our lives and let others know what respect we deserve. pls don't feel sad and helpless. when one door closes other opens, keep looking for opportunities. all the best.

Hi for each her own.  We women have this inbuilt thing in us where we place everyone else before us.  Feeling inadequate is common, both when we stay at home and when we are working. Getting no respect and being judged happens even when you work.  Take your time, express your desires to your husband. You can sort it out,  till then bask in the little joys of motherhood.

Hey dear anonym. Please come out from this mindset. Going to job and being stay at home are equally tough job. I understand that we girls should always be independent. My suggestion would be do some online job. For example :if you know cooking very well, click and explain those either as a blog or in YouTube. But for this you might need to first get exposure towards those. We have to grab and make the opportunity to live the way we wish. We have only one life , so enjoy 😊

i feel same and i was earning good as a software tester i was enjoying my work..but i think i wont be able to work again...:(

if you respect yourself ppl will...I resigned from a fortune 500 company and chose to be full time mommy for my daughter... prioritize and love your current responsibility... managing a baby is not easy...the baby needs you in early years as strong roots makes strong trees....you are doing the best job in the world as the salary is the beautiful smile you get all day...😘🤗
