I read this social media post: Motherhood Is Not a Woman’s Most Important Job: It’s more like an unpaid volunteer position you commit to for life
My two cents here…
Some people tend to say, the best kind of work you can get is working with your passion and not treating your work as a job. As mentioned in this article, motherhood, a very fulfilling and miraculous experience one can have, is not a job and a mother doesn’t get paid for it in any of the world’s currency.
I believe that motherhood, in all its varying forms from physically giving birth to a child to taking the mother role for a child born from another woman, is a blessing. A blessing that makes life tougher in certain ways, but ultimately fulfilling in indescribable ways.
In the same use of keywords here, working women who are also mothers should not be an issue. There are sacrifices with taking care of the younger generation, but there are a lot of different ways to work out things both inside and outside the home while raising the young ones, even if the parent/s — a mother, a father, fathers, mothers, the mother and father included, and we should include the guardians as well — is/are working for a living or are changing the world.
Please don’t judge people’s choices on whether they want to become a parent or not. Free will, they say. Having a “family” shouldn’t be boxed up with just procreation.
