I don't NEED to work

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post

My husband makes more than enough money to support us.  I could quit my job and we could live exaclty how we do now, no struggle.  I don't need to work for the money but I work full time anyways.

My son is school aged and I would feel lazy if I was capable of working but yet instead I just sat at home while he went to school and didn't contribute financialy snce I am able.

Since I don't choose to stay home apparently I'm a terrible mother to y'all

I'm in the same position as you are, but I chose not to work. And according to some, I too am a terrible mom, lol.

Don't let a bunch of crazy women make you feel bad for your decisions. As long as you are happy, and everyone is taken care of, who cares? :)

I don't understand why people care what strangers on the Internet think of them. Lol, I think if you are happy, and your family is happy, that's all that matters.

I have no issue with working mothers, that is your choice and there is nothing wrong with it.

I'm not a big fan of your second paragraph, though. You made a post about not wanting to be bashed for your decision to work, yet you backhandedly bash SAHMs in that same post. Thanks.

Just because some people think you're a bad mom doesn't mean you need to make a post saying what you do so that people can either come in and bash you or defend you. Do what is right for your family and that is it.

We are in the same situation...he makes enough money to live exactly as we do now that I do not have to work....I have worked since I was 16yrs old...was a single mom for years, then my ex was a sickly man (brittle diabetic that didn't take care of himself or his health) and was sick in bed for months on end.....It is very very refreshing NOT having to work...I don't...I have been on a sabbatical for sd is children are grown and gone...I love being home...sure sometimes I get bored...but not often...I visit with gal pals, go to the beach, ride my bicycle, or harley....If/when the day comes to where I have to work again then I will...but till then as long as dh is happy with me being home, then I am content to be right here!!!!

and YOU ARE NOT A TERRIBLE get that out of  your head right now lady!!!!
