Do you regret it?

DO you feel sorry for yourself if you cannot give the maximum needs of you family? What will be your alternative in order to make it possible to meet both ends?

Since I felt I cannot meet both ends meet with my husband's salary alone, I started going for work. But this was a hindrance to provide variety of food items and snacks to my children as I did not have much time for extra cooking. Then I started buying eatables from outside now and then. But at the cost of my relaxation and rest, I devoted my full time on children for their extra-curricular activities, outings etc. and children realise it even now.

i have no regret at all it just improve me in a way i do things and think. it made me more creative, and i also find out that more doors are open to me. i guess it's cause i got out of my comfort zone. you just need to implement some changement in life that will help tou provide better for the family, also you have to live within your limits while searching for better and also the kids must learn the value of money. and a great education from parent and school will orient them in a better direction for their future. the key is to leave with and enjoy what you have show the kids the same things and the value of money and smart work.
