Before I make the point I want to make, I want to just say...I support people being educated and achieving what ever "calls" to them...no one can
fit into any certain mold...but I do believe there are some "general" differences in men and women that should be valued and not overcome.
It bother's me now that I understand the "women's Lib" movement had some very sinister "backer's", David Rockafeller for one, and he is quoted
as saying basically " We double our tax base, and get control of the kids earlier, it's brilliant"
Now I grew up a "go-getter" went to a good college, owned a business by age 24.....went to work in corporate America and climbed the ladder to
become what some might consider "successful" by my early 30's...the job required alot of travel and long hours...but I was good at it...."I had
made it" so to speak....OK...sounds good so far, huh?
Well, I'm here to tell you in my 40's now...that I sacrafised ALOT...or more I should say the people that needed me did. I only had one child, which
I regret, my daughter was lonely alot....and God knows as hard as I tried I just wasn't there enough for her, and it took it's toll on her...she's
21 now. She's moved back home now, so maybe I get a "do-over"...
These "family" friendly companies are a bunch of BS....no one cares your kid has a ballet recital when push comes to shove....and it was IMPOSSIBLE
to be a good mother and good at my job both. When I was lucky enough to find Love again after my divorce....he walks into this hot mess that is my
life...a stressed out over worked mom, with a kid that would become an out of control teenager....throw in the "inlaws" and yikes!
I try my best to avoid the "coulda, shoulda, woulda" game...it is what it is, and fate will unfold as it will....I did my best with what I
understood at the time.......I can only say, the whole..."bring home the bacon, fry it up in a pan, and never let you forget your a man" thing
didn't work out so great for me and mine........
