At one time I believed to have had it all in the sense that I had a career, no debt, no health problems, etc. I had it all in the sense that everything was ok. No troubles, no worries. Now is a completely different story, but I still feel like I have a good chunk of it. Great kids, loving husband, sweet pets, etc.
I don't think anyone can "have it all" because there are always sacrifices. In order to have the things you do...you had to give up something else for it. Although, that doesn't mean you can't be content or happy with what you do actually have.
"Having it all" for a woman means reaching the goals of success in both the workplace and on the domestic front. I can only speak for myself, and my answer is "no." I am sure that a woman can make it work with nannies, housekeepers, etc., but a woman who devotes the time to achieve top success at her career will ultimately miss out on the special milestones of raising her children. This lifestyle too will soon make a woman feel like a slave. Husbands ideally want to be catered to and not competed with. It's reality no matter how unpopular the thought is with feminists. At the cost of making money and building one's career, there have to be sacrifices w/ family and relationships. I've learned that family comes first, because loyalty is rarely repaid from a boss or a corporation when the time comes to make necessary cuts.
Women can have some things.What ever it is.They can do.There are a lot of things that women can not have.Only men can do and have because the way things are to share all the resposibilities in this world. It to much for women to handle.
I may not "have it all" in conventional way. And yet things have improved a great deal. But then in moments of idleness, I feel scared of what lies in future.
You couldn't have said it better. What does lie in the future? I guess we could look at it as something that's exciting. You know, the "unknown". But, first of course we have to feel secure to some extent. I know just what you're feeling.
Yes, I need to try & look at things this way.
