    Does having more roles in your life worth the effort?

    I know we women have several roles in life when taking care of our families and working.  But what clashes with your occupation but you still want to do it?

    You find a way to make it work, if it is what you want. I personally chose the role of a stay at home mom after the birth of my son. I could juggle both, but it would not be worth having to spend less time with him in order to work. Sometimes the stress of juggling both occupation and family can cause stress related health issues- making it not worth it to some.

      That is so true.  Although my children are grown, I want to help all that I can for my grandchildren so that they can pursue their dreams.  It's stressful and I'm hoping things work out for the best.

    Life is a (personal) journey.
    As far as we know we've only got one shot on this planet to fulfill our goals and every day that goes by inches us towards the grave.
    Ideally family and friends would be supportive of your dreams.
    On the other hand if you have a demanding occupation sometimes you have to make the choice of working elsewhere for less money.
    It really comes down to whatever it is (you) want out of life.
    The world may not owe you anything but you owe yourself the world!
    Best wishes!

      I agree that it should be what you want out of life.  Sacrifices like saving money or more work hours takes a toll on everything.  I find I have to push harder to reach those daily goals.

    That's when the truth comes out. If it's a burning, true passion you'll find a way to do what you want and care for your family too. Not that it's easy.  I took on the care of my elderly dad a few years ago. It's a daily challenge, taking care of him, myself and making sure I get some writing done.  I have had to throw a few things to the curb.

      I can relate to that.  I cared for my Mom years ago and it was all that and more.  I have to say though, that I learned a lot about myself at that time.  If I had to do it over I'd not hesitate to do it.
