A lot of us women have pressure from expectations whether that be while divorced, single, married or as a mom.
For me it was being a SAHM 🏠👩🏾🦱building my own business.
I wanted to work but not with restrictions. I also didn’t want to come home late, miss everything or every milestone Zephan reached. Daycare wasn’t in the budget (in my case I’d be practically working just to pay for a sitter ) and having personal care was only considered as a “Date-day or me time ” routine for us. Not to mention hubby is about to start working two jobs even after a promotion he has coming up! Plus I didn’t want to work a 9-5 anymore which led me to finally start building my own business and following my passion! but of course that wasnt and still isn’t a walk in the park!
People have told my husband that I should “get off my butt” (as if I do nothing) and work a 9-5 and that my dream can wait for the sake of financial “comfortability”, knowing little to nothing about our situation and why that won’t work for my type of entrepreneurship especially as a mom, in my situation. Then there’s those who claim that my goal is not real and that no one makes money doing what I do without even truly understanding what I do or what it takes to do what I do 🤦🏾♀️
Anyway, heres my point in all of this sis, it’s okay when you are pressured under the expectations of others and you can’t stop ✋🏾 people from having expectations for you. They aren’t going to understand your walk or the path you chose because it’s not theirs. I don’t know if you are a SAHM, WAHM, WM, married, divorced, single, dating but please remember this, living under the expectations of others is doing more damage than good for your health. Create your own healthy expectations and allow God to lead the rest of the way.
