I have a wonderful career when I was still single. But when I got married, my husband told me stop for the meantime because I had high risk pregnancy. He said after I give birth I can go back to work but it's been 5 years now and I can't still look for a job bacause my husband wants me to take care of our only daughter that he loves so much. He is a good provider and his salary is enough for us to enjoy but still I want to go back to work bacause I like to continously improve myself I don't like staying at home. For you will you give up your wants and dreams for your family?

Prioritize your family first. Your career can wait. But the attitude of your child is developing at young age so better guide them first.

it should be about the quality of life for you not the choice

I don't see any reason why you shouldn't go back to work if your daughter is in school. Maybe you can go back part time and see how it works out. Who knows maybe you will decide that work really isn't what you wanted to do after all. Good luck to you!

Hi simplegal! Seen your profile you are from cainta I'm from San Carlos Binangonan. Nice to find you here. I was been in your same situation before almost a year when I stop working and look after for my son who is now 3 yrs old, when my husband went home from work onboard I simply discuss to him my toughts of working again and helping him raise some income. Sometimes we need to have self satisfaction in able for us to grow as an individual, as a mother and as a wife. If you really want to work again justify your cause and your husband will do understand you. cheers to us.
