What would you do, if in my place?

Well, to tell about me in one line "Family First". But still, sometimes I feel depressed. The main reason behind that is, I resigned my s/w engg job few months back, to take care of my son. Since I didn't want to leave him in a day care, at least until he start speaking (so that he can tell what happens to him, everyday), I left my nice paying job. Though I conveince myself that my son is always with me, sometimes self pity leaves me in silent tears... Though I'm engaging myself in online earnings and started doing pretty well, I miss my office environment, those nice moments.... I don't know how to come out of this.... Help me, just to stay out of those thoughts...

It is quite normal feelings of working women in India. When you take firm decision that family is first, then this type of feelings are only for few seconds. when you think of your office environment you see your son and play with him. Your old feelings will fly like anything. Hope you will overcome this very soon.

I would spend time with my son. I mean if you quit your job to be with him more and wait til he starts talking, why not spend time with him and maybe teach him some sign language so he can sort of talk. Babies are really smart and I know some who have learned sign language at such a young age.

If I were in your shoes, I won't be feeling less that able to drifts me to the world of depression. Because I've determined my objective for my action and reaction. The only thing now is to embrace myself with these two (2) factors; exciting and rewarding. I must feel exciting for my sacrifices and will be rewarding when my son able to vocalized his first word to me, in fact I impatiently waiting for that moment. I won't mess up my mind with the definition of live and life. Where live is a tangible value, whereas life is an intangible value. Meaning, I have to find and feel LOVE for what I am doing. LOVE for both category of desires and necessities. Depression occurred due to mind's inefficient. What is efficient? Efficient is low input with high output. So, in this case I'll ensure my mind surely always in and at high level of efficient. How could I do that?. I will engage all the time and at every beat of the clock to be me with myself. I am the story owner to my own story life.
