I will go back to my career, when my children are little more independent. I will resume my career when the time is right.
We have all said this statement, including me. The number of times I have run away from my responsibility or attempt is infinite. There is no such concept as the right time, it is all in our minds. The right time is always now.
I may seem like someone who is very over enthusiastic but no, it does not make sense in delaying something that you want to do. I know I said in my first article that age does not matter when you want to restart your career. But that does not mean that you need to keep waiting for when the right time would arrive. You have a dream, the right time to pursue it is at the earliest. Just go ahead and do it.
You do not need permission
As a human being, it is your basic right of survival to have dreams and to follow them. You do not need permission from any one to follow them or to chase them. What you need to do is to make some arrangements with your near and dear ones. You do not have to ask your parents to take care of your children 24*7 but arrange for help for a couple of hours first. Once everyone around you has adjusted to your new routine, then things will automatically fall in place.
The real reason why a lot of families straight away ask women to quit their jobs or business is because everyone is completely dependent on the women of the house. The men earn and women run the house. So a slight change in the schedule of the main person who runs the house can cause chaos. That is the reason why a lot of families refrain a woman from taking up a job or a business full time.
What you can do is start slowly but start it now, because each phase in life will bring its own set of changes and problems. Today you are young and have energy. Tomorrow your health may not support you that much. So make the best of your time today.
I have always been against Glorifying Over Work and therefore, in the year 2021, I have decided to launch this campaign “Balancing Life”and talk about this wrong practice, that we have been following since last few years. I will be talking to and interviewing around 1 lakh people in the coming 2021 and publish their interview regarding their opinion on glamourising Over Work.
