“If the 1950s woman was trapped behind her man, is the 2010 woman trapped behind her…kids?” Great essay on Blogher: http://bit.ly/9S0UAx
As I rush around to prepare for my children’s future, my present is evaporating.
–> they say that mother is embracing selflessness. I believe i tried to play that role of a selfless mother but i wasn’t happy, it’s just not me. so i’m now all about myself, and i’m happy but there is that guilt that i’m being such selfish.
i guess whichever side we are, it’s not easy being a mother. plus the society’s pressure on mothers can be sometimes really that stigmatizing that it’s hard to be just ourselves.
or is it just me?
