Check out these 5 useful tips for a blissful career!
From pursuing an education to doing a job, a woman’s choice is hardly considered. Either she will be forced to do what her family thinks is best for her or will abide by higher education and career of their choice.
Adjustments seem to have been part and parcel of a woman’s life. It is typically the age-old belief— which, is indeed true that women are always expected in their entire lifetime to deal with and make adjustments.
Not only that.
If a woman tries to speak up and go against this behaviour of adjusting then she has to face a really hard time as people in society will start giving her labels, and questions will also raise upon her, eventually judging her in all aspects.
Also, every girl has a period of transition in her life that marks the end of her happy and innocent youth and the start of a series of changes that will last the rest of her life.
Even though it is strongly gendered, this shift is obtusely referred to as adulthood.
A lady is ripped from infancy and compelled into maturity during this shift. No matter if the girl is grown enough to put her buttons on correctly, the first period and a maturing body strike alarm bells as a society start heaping rules on her.
This causes a huge negative impact on a woman’s mental health, and she is always seen juggling multiple things at a time, making her fatigued.
A woman remains under constant pressure to be perfect in all situations and not utter any word, leading to depression as her feelings and emotions remain locked in a nutshell.
She learns from this point on that growing up as a girl entails changing your appearance, your voice tone, the way you sit and walk, putting care over your career, putting your children before yourself, and so forth.
Additionally, it’s frequently accompanied by two reasonable words: Please Adjust.
A woman can achieve great success and even an equal amount of success to her male counterpart if she is also given the same roadway to live life.
From pursuing an education to doing a job, a woman’s choice is hardly taken care of. Either she will be forced to do what her family thinks is best for her or will abide by higher education and career.
A woman is equally capable— to run a household by herself financially and not just take care of household chores.
With all adjustments lined up, a woman loses her self-confidence and ends up living a monotonous life where she seems to be living for others and not herself, vanishing her self-identity.
It’s time to spin the wheel and society should be more understanding and adjusting toward women. This world then only can be a better place for everyone if aspect like adjustment is not gender-bound but should be done on a mutual basis to create a healthy environment and relationships.
In the times of the new normal, it should be okay if there’s a house-husband taking care of the children and the household chores. It’s okay if your wife has to work till late hours in the office. It’s okay if your daughter wants to go abroad for higher studies. It’s okay if we start less expecting from women in society.
And most importantly, it’s perfectly all right if a woman puts forth her mental health first and adjustments later!
Let’s pledge to create a harmonious and women-friendly world where they also have a space to share their views, opinions, and choices and live in their own ways without adjusting all the time.
It’s an urge to the society we live in to be kind and gentle to all women out there.

From all news reports, clearly, Aftab Poonawalla seems to be a psychopath, and It was a well-strategized story of domestic violence, abuse, subjugation, and a well-planned murder.
Trigger Warning: This deals with domestic violence, gaslighting, murder, and abetting violence, and may be triggering to survivors.
One case has gripped the nation and I do not need to mention which. My problem is with how the news reflects a victim’s character. The disrespect we show to someone who was long abused and lives no more is appalling. The disservice we do to her through spoken and written words lies in the sensationalizing of the entire case.
How do you spot a crazy human? They do not have two horns and red eyes. They may have no empathy but will show it to lure the victim, just like a child abuser lures a child with candy. Their grooming styles may vary but it is mostly about creating an untrue sense of safety and security around the victim. They present themselves as this effortless savior, an ultimate generous destination for a mentally and emotionally vulnerable person.
Fathers play a crucial role in nurturing and raising children, so why isn't paternity leave considered essential?
Some time ago, Bollywood couple Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt were in the news, yet again. An entertainment website, Bollywood Hungama, reported that the expectant father, Ranbir, wished to take paternity leave to spend time with his baby when it arrived.
The website claimed that the actor would not be signing new films for the time being. He would take care of the child, while his wife Alia would return to work at the earliest.
One would think the internet would laud this sweet and thoughtful gesture. Instead, Ranbir got trolled for his decision to be a stay-at-home dad. Netizens made fun of him; they claimed that it was because he had no offers in the pipeline, and Alia was far more successful than him. Others claimed that it was the right decision – his recent films (other than Brahmastra) had bombed, and it was time he reflected on his roles.
