Give Time to Yourself

Dear Beautiful ladies, share a few learnings.

  • Take care of your health. Spend time and money on maintaining yourself.
  • Learn to be independent. It’s perfectly ok to not earn, but it’s important to be independent.
  • Learn to ride that bike or drive that car. You don’t always need an escort.
  • Learn about investments and taxes. It’s not necessary to have someone else manage your savings and earnings all your life.
  • Plan and save for your own gifts and desires. You don’t always need a boyfriend or husband or your dad to buy you something you love. Gift yourself.
  • When you expect equal pay at work, take equal responsibilities. It’s not ok to play the “Woman” card or “Mother” card and shun tough tasks, working weekends or late every time.
  • Take equal responsibility of your parents. It’s not acceptable to expect everything from your brother every time.
  • Let the father take care of unwell child once in a while. It’s ok. Your career is equally important and the father is equally responsible.
  • Let other family members take care of kitchen some times. It’s ok if the kitchen platform is exceptionally unclean or sink is full of dirty vessels. Relax and take that break.
  • Help the other woman, even if you don’t like her. You never know what her battles are. Empower the needy ones, like your maids. Teach her basics of hygiene, education and finances.
  • Create a support system. It’s ok to get on well with in-laws. Not every family needs a saas-bahu battle.
  • Have some friends (men and women) beyond your husband’s or boyfriend’s group. It’s ok. Spend some time away from family with your friends.
  • It’s ok to not cry. Not all women need to be sentimental all the time.
  • Be vigilant, be prepared to handle tough situations. When things go wrong, try to be balanced and find way out of your problems. You don’t need to play the victim.
  • Find time to read and keep yourself updated.
  • Raise independent, caring and health conscious kids. Make all family members equally accountable and responsible.
  • Create different girlie groups. Share your problems and seek opinions. Finally take your own decision and be confident about it.
  • Spend some time in doing what you like, even if it’s just sitting idle. Don’t feel guilty about it, just because others feel it worthless.
  • Believe in yourself….. If you don’t know no one else will.
