Most dads do not need to be reminded of taking some time off for themselves then why do moms need to negotiate for some 'ME' time?
Most dads do not need to be reminded of taking some time off for themselves then why do moms need to negotiate for some ‘me time’?
I am a mother myself and an avid exponent of mothers taking care of themselves and getting some ‘me time’. We often see that mothers either think they’re not worth it, or they think that they are too needed at all times to carve out some time for themselves.
Between jobs, spouses, children and other commitments, it is hard to get some spare time for yourself in the day. But isn’t that unfair?
Taking care of yourself is the most important gift you can give yourself, your children, and your family. Putting others’ needs first might work for a while, but eventually, it won’t.
And it is more than likely that it might have negative consequences on you physically, mentally, and emotionally. Health problems, anxiety, depression, and relationship issues are just some of them.
And trust me these issues will not only have an adverse effect on you, but also on your children. Therefore mothers take care of yourself and give yourself a time-out!
Just last week a Facebook post from Bunmi Laditan, a mother went viral on social media. This post is particluarly important in the light of how important it is for mothers to take some time off from their children, husband and other commitments in order to maintain their sanity. Take a look at the post here:

If her MIL had accepted her with some affection, wouldn't they have built a mutually happier relationship by now?
The incident took place ten years ago.
Smita could visit her mother only in summers when her daughter had school holidays. Her daughter also enjoyed meeting her Nani, and both of them had done their reservations for a week. A month before their visit, her husband told her, “My mom is coming for 4-5 months!”
Smita shuddered. She knew the repercussions. She would have to hear sarcastic comments from her mother-in-law for visiting her mother. She may make these comments directly only a bit, but her servants would be flooded with the words, “How horrible she is! She leaves me and goes!”
Maybe Animal is going to make Ranbir the superstar he yearns to be, but is this the kind of legacy his grandfather and granduncles would wish for?
I have no intention of watching Animal. I have heard it’s acting like a small baby screaming and yelling for attention. However, I read some interesting reviews which gave away the original, brilliant and awe-inspiring plot (was that sarcastic enough?), and I don’t really need to go watch it to have an informed opinion.
A little boy craves for his father’s love but doesn’t get it so uses it as an excuse to kill a whole bunch of people when he grows up. Poor paapa (baby) what else could he do?
I was wondering; if any woman director gets inspired by this movie and replicates this with a female protagonist, what would happen?. Oh wait, that’s the story of so many women in this world. Forget about not giving them love, you have fathers who try to kill their daughters or sell them off or do other equally despicable things.
