Don't you ever feel that guilt when going to work in the morning?
You spend all day trying to earn a living to pay for bills and earn your keep, when all you dream about is to stay home with your children. It's hard, but how much of a choice do parents really have in today's Society? One wage is better than nothing, two wages are better than one; especially when living in metropolis where costs of living are exorbitant and inflation rate are always higher than wage growth.
It can be quite depressing at times and feeling that guilt is not surprising but at least in some ways, there is hope. Having a work nowadays is a gem to be cherished, as unfortunately many struggle with unemployment.
For your little ones, who break your heart when they ask you to stay with them as you step a foot outside, sometimes simply explaining why it's important that mummy and daddy work is a way to help them understand. But not exclusively, it also set a good example, parents are their children's role model and the fact that they see you work hard would make them want to work hard too.
It's key to point out that, depending on where you live and your country' laws, there could be possibilities for flexi-working which would enable you to either work from home or arrange a flexible work pattern so that you make your work-life balance better for you and your family.
So, in a way, there is always a bright side to everything and sometimes we just need to stop and think about what "our" bright side is? Having said that, dreaming of that golden winning lottery ticket is perfectly normal!!
