She wants to feel special
After a long day at work or school, when a woman finds herself surrounded by her loving husband and children…she forgets everything. No matter how successful a woman is, the type of expectation is same. She needs the same amount of time and care. She feels so lucky and blessed to have a caring and loving family. No matter how independent she is, she will still enjoy depending on her husband for a variety of things. She wants to feel special, she likes undivided attention, and she likes to feel safe and loved. Men may find themselves complaining nothing they do is good enough but that is because an element is missing. To tell you the truth, almost all women are very with the support of their family. A woman just wants you to read her mind. She wants you to know that she is tired or not feeling good without saying a word. In conclusion, women like to have their feelings noticed without questions or explanations.
As workingwomen, we feel a responsibility to support our families both financially and emotionally. We must keep ourselves happy in order to keep our families happy because love comes from a happy mom in a way that an unhappy mom cannot provide. A strong woman who keeps a routine and tries to focus on positive things still falls apart sometime. Not all of us are equally strong and brave. We all have our strengths and weaknesses. Stress in our family life is always a deeper problem than a stress at work. You can look for new job and you may find better job too but your family is your responsibility. Keeping all the stress inside and being sad is not a solution. Women in our society hold so many different types of jobs. They are educated, they are smart, they like to learn, they dream big, and they like to manage.
Unlike men, women like to be perfect at work and at home. A family’s role comes into play when a married woman with children dreams big. There is a saying that a “dream is valid when it is your own,” but for a married woman…a dream is valid when your family understands, supports, and values your dream. Women, especially in our culture, have a habit of caring less for themselves when they are unhappy and I think we should change the way we think before it is too late.
No matter what life throws at us, we must continue to take care of ourselves. If you don’t take care of yourself, you cannot take care of your family. We will always be able to pursue both our dreams and our families’ dreams if we stay strong and healthy. However, we will drop the ball just as fast if we start to break because we sense a lack of support. I totally understand your expectations from your family and friends but you will have to hold yourself accountable and rise even when no one understands you. Giving up is not an option, so please take care of yourself.
There are so many quotes shared by the women in our community. Few are very simple yet deep and are related to what I am trying to point out. Pratigya A Bastola said “Staying strong mentality is everything." Leena Shrestha said “Live life to the fullest and focus on positive.” Smarika Sitaula said “God helps those who help themselves”. Sarana Parajuli said “Life gives women different roles to play. It is an achievement to find the beautiful meaning of each role.” Pratibha Phuyal said “Believes on hard work than luck”. Mala Jha said “you can’t belief in God if you don’t believe in yourself’. Komal Dutta shared Wayne Dyer’s quote “How people treat you is their karma; how you react is yours”. In conclusion, if we continue to find the beautiful meaning of our different roles, take care of ourselves, don’t worry about how people treat you, stay strong mentally, and believe in hard work, we will definitely succeed to define our own version of success. I totally agree with Deepti Dawadi “Ultimately the choices you make define who you are.”
Happy International women’s day! Thank you all for your tremendous support! Let’s not forget that we are very special and very important to our family and for our community. Let’s continue to pray for healthy body, pure mind and civilized society.
