I know that the most difficult thing in life is to know which bridge to cross and which bridge to burn but I want my son to know that there is always a way to build another bridge.
“Life is about choices. Some we regret, some we are proud of. Some will haunt us forever. The message : we are what we chose to be.” – Graham Brown
I think all of us would have heard this at least once in our life. Our parents or teachers or our friends, someone, sometimes all of them, must have told us to choose wisely because life is full of choices and we must choose wisely.
My dad too told me that I have to choose wisely because my life will be a reflection of the choices I make. He stood by me in all my choices and decisions.
But one thing my dad did not tell me and what I want my son to know is “Life is full of choices, choose wisely. But, If you feel you have made the wrong choice, PLEASE DON’T HESITATE TO MAKE ANOTHER CHOICE.”
We sometimes make a choice, think about how it will work, think about all the possible things that can go wrong, turn all the possible scenarios in our mind over and over. If things go well then you know you made the right choice but what if things don’t happen the way you want to.
I want my son to know that all choices may not be the right choices but he should have the courage to change his direction, make another decision, choose another path. THERE IS ALWAYS ANOTHER CHANCE, ANOTHER CHOICE.
I know that the most difficult thing in life is to know which bridge to cross and which bridge to burn but I want my son to know that there is always a way to build another bridge. I want to tell him that life changes the moment you make a new decision. I really feel very sorry when I see kids who get into depression, sometimes try to end their life just because things did not work out.
I wish they knew that they could make a different choice. I wish, the women who face marital abuse were told by their parents that there is a different choice. I wish everyone who gives up, learns to make a new decision, a new choice. Sometimes it is the smallest decision that can change your life forever. So, my friends…life is full of choices, choose wisely but please have the courage to make a different choice if things don’t work out.

My belly is living proof
of the life I have grown, held, and birthed
a ‘permanently pregnant’ swell
stretch marks and a caesarian scar
that still itch
an experience I wouldn’t trade in
except for what I was told by the father of my child.
It is easy to give in to patriarchal expectations from a married woman and lose your self in a marriage, but the path to happiness is in keeping your independence.
Marriage is often described as the joining of two individuals’ bodies, minds, and souls. Upon getting married, you are expected to share everything with your partner, including time, money, and all other aspects of life. Your life should revolve around your spouse from beginning to end.
But is it necessary to spend every waking moment with the spouse? Are you not supposed to have a life apart from your spouse? And do these rules apply only to women or men as well?
Although both men and women may face this situation, women are generally expected to give up everything once they get married. Despite progress in several areas, expecting women to abandon their interests, passions, and friendships to align their lives with those of their spouses is still considered the norm.
