We often talk about the sacrifices we make for our children. This comes up most frequently in the SAHM realm - ie if only you made some sacrifices you could SAH, I sacrificed everything to SAH with my children - but WOHM have expressed that sentiment as well.
Here is the quote:
"One thing is certain: that we will never attain the goal of living comfortably with our choices as mothers until we acknowledge that we HAVE choices and, even more importantly, that we deserve to have them. Women who diminsh their own needs "for the sake of the family," by whatever meand however sterling their motives, are living a lie. If families do not begin with mothers, where do they begin? Even more to the point, where do they hope to go?"
Thought, comments, rotten garbage?
