I had a very stressful online job on data entry & email marketing plus my husband don't like my job because it takes a lot of my time. I was like in the middle of a war. The longest time that i can sleep was about 5 hours, most of the time i can only get 2-3 hours of sleep everyday, plus my husband always get mad at me..I was so stressed out about anything, I wanted my career because I don't have any options as of that moment, & i have things to pay for so I badly needed my job & yet on the other side my husband keeps on fighting me about it.. Gosh it was the most stressful thing that happened to me, but now finally i broke the chain that's grasping my neck. I resigned & chose my family over my job. I can change my job but i can't change my family.. I'm happy now although i still have worries because i have still a lot of debts but I'm sure I can find a way for it.. Happy myLotting everyone! :)

Hi there, gracielle!You've made the right choice of choosing my family over my career. If I were in your shoes, I would do the same and just find a job that suits my time, with lots of time to spend with my family. Very tough decision, but as you say, you can change your job but not your family. I'm sure your husband is already happy and might do extra time in his work to pay for all your debts. Family is always first.

yep, now i realized that my son needs me more than anything.. i have a husband who's working triple his time now because he's so happy that i end my very stressful job & i get to spend all my time with them..I'm just very happy now & I'm having my own mini grocery store this december so i get to have my own income too..Life is really good if you always put God in the center of our lives & be always in the side of your family. Happiness is the best thing that life has to offer.. thanks for the response, have a great day! :)

I chose my family..I figured I only get one time with them and I chose to take it...they are nearly all grown now. The "baby" will be 17 next month. I have started going back to school myself now..now is the time for my education. Then was the time for my family!

hi gracielle you are lucky if you do not really have to work as most of my married life I did not have that choice and a lot of women do notas living in California mostly takes two paychecks unless your mate is in upper management which usually is not the case so you wo rk. I was home for the first few yearsa of each childs life but once they wee in school and my brain damaged daughter in facility where she could learn I had o go back to work as we had housepayments,uitilities and food.so if you can be home do so as you willnot regret it at all.
