In present time, we have become so busy and engrossed that sometimes we forget ourselves.
Especially, we women are so busy taking care of entire household that we forget our identity.
Before marriage we are known as so and so’s daughter or sister, after marriage so and so’s wife or daughter-in-law, after kids so and so’s Mom. In our entire life time we are addressed as somebody’s wife, daughter, and mother but never as I, ourselves.
We also, in this process, somewhere down the lane we forget who we are and go on with our life.
Is it wrong to be recognized as Me, who I am? Why can't I have my own identity? We take our parents name before marriage and after marriage our husband’s. Inspite of getting good education, job, somewhere we tend to forget who we really are.
We listen to parents before marriage and after marriage act according to husband and in-laws. Why we are not allowed to have our say in some matters?
We women are trained since childhood to be behind scenes. And we sometimes get used to it.
Take for example, we mothers of kids with special needs. We are so busy taking care of our kids and their needs on daily basis that we are hardly left with time and energy for ourselves. If by chance we do find some time for us, people say “what kind of mother she is, not bothered about her child? She is having fun alone…”
Give us a break yaar…First of all we are always the worse sufferers in these matters. We are first taunted and blamed that due to us the child is not normal. Then when we try to treat the child to make them independent, they say we are wasting money. A mother’s job is a 24 x 7; 365 days job with no salary, no appraisals, no holidays, no sick leaves, no appreciation nothing… Inspite of that if we try to spend some time on ourselves, what’s wrong with that?
Aren’t we humans? Don’t we deserve a break? Don’t we need some rest? Don’t we all need some “ME” time?
Like others we too need some rest, some appreciation, some “Me” time. And after a whole day of hard work, it's a definitely and a big “YES”.
So what if we don’t get paid or appreciated, if we go on 1 day strike, you’ll realize how worthy our job is…
So enjoy your “I” moment… All humans deserve it.
Go for a walk, listen to music, pamper yourself in parlor, spend time with friends, and enjoy some break … Rejuvenate yourself, life must have never felt better, after you give attention to yourself.
