    I have not read all the other posts but what struck me from your post is-what are you calling yourself a housewife? Call yourself a proud HOMEMAKER.
    All that you are doing for the family makes the house a home.

    You should keep your head high by being a house wife. Managing an entire household is not an easy task.

    It is very important that you believe in yourself , and do not lose your self respect and self esteem. Being a homemaker, is a noble job.

    Thanks ,

    Growing up, my mom was a SAHM .. Now after getting married, I cannot tell how grateful I am for it. I got to spend so much time with her at home, during summer holidays/ after college/ job etc. She is my best friend in so many ways. Being housewife is not in anyway inferior, your children will appreciate you once they grow up. Their views is all you will care about in the long run.

    New age feminism mocks at any woman who is not working. It is not respect for women but respect for money. I just ignore people who think like that.

    Are you giving enuf respect to yourself?

    Empowering comes from within. Not from others or from money (Parvathi was on spot). As long as we are suckers for judgements and insecure rats, does it matter if someone respects you or not?. This insecurity is rotting us as mothers ( and our children in a way).

    Homemakers bring up families, true emotions and genuine efforts are priceless. I have been both working and homemaker, people find something to put you down either way.

    All they do is pull you down, the difference lies in the fact that if you let them do it or not.

    :hello:Thanks for sharing your link about your views in quora.
    2. I read it and you had covered in a nutshell the issues MIL vs DIL. 3. It is Twenty20 game of cricket. You win the toss elect to bat and begin hitting Sixers and boundaries from day one . If you wait for things to improve with passage of time, it is hell ending up with chronic ailments leading to depression reducing mental abilities.
    4. It is rightly said, mother in law is a Hitler woman in disguise.
    5. I am happy for you with welled up eyes the way you handled the challenge and emerged triumphant.
    6. It reminded me of sister in link
    Getti Melam - Supraja - An Apple Of My Eye
    Thanks and regards.
    God bless.
