Hi all, I will be 40 in next 2 yr.I m proud mother of 6 yrs old girl. I m happy person staying in Dubai currently n new re joinee of IL. Just a thought came I like to share with u all.... do u think to be financially independent at age of 40?? I myself don't know how n what to be done .but I think many of our sisters can guide us. Also as per society ,my hubby is earing well, I have single child so why is it necessary to work? But to be very frank empty nest syndrome is effecting me, I know my daughter also needs me now but for few more yrs then she will be independent after that. Also almost 7yrs gap ...I m not at all confident of working. l basic fear is of social interactions now professionally. Though I love talking to people....what a opposite sentences!!!! Many people says ur hobbies can be ur earings. But I completely forgot what were my hobbies??? I completely dedicated my self to my daughter n before her to my hubby priorties. I know I didn't do something out of box but still I feel I lost my self somewhere. But still I m thinking of earing . Hope u all can connect n help me n ladies like me going through this stage!!!
