Can a mother/father ask for her/himself before she/he asks for his/her kids?

I don’t think so, never pick your wife/husband over your mother or father. The biggest mistake todays generation makes is forgetting about their parents once they get married or start earning. You can find lots of husbands or wives but never your mother or father. They probably will die sooner…

Responsibility to yourself means refusing to let others do your thinking, talking, and naming for you…it means that you do not treat your body as a commodity with which to purchase superficial intimacy or economic security; for our bodies to be treated as objects, our minds are in mortal danger. It means insisting that those to whom you give your friendship and love are able to respect your mind. It means being able to say, with Charlotte Bronte’s Jane Eyre: “I have an inward treasure born with me, which can keep me alive if all the extraneous delights should be withheld or offered only at a price I cannot afford to give.

Responsibility to yourself means that you don’t fall for shallow and easy solutions—predigested books and ideas…marrying early as an escape from real decisions, getting pregnant as an evasion of already existing problems. It means that you refuse to sell your talents and aspirations short…and this, in turn, means resisting the forces in society which say that women should be nice, play safe, have low professional expectations, drown in love and forget about work, live through others, and stay in the places assigned to us. It means that we insist on a life of meaningful work, insist that work be as meaningful as love and friendship in our lives. It means, therefore, the courage to be “different”…The difference between a life lived actively, and a life of passive drifting and dispersal of energies, is an immense difference. Once we begin to feel committed to our lives, responsible to ourselves, we can never again be satisfied with the old, passive way.

growing up.

last night, i was talking to my bf & he asked how i would be if i got married. i told him a lot of things & what i believe in as a future daughter-in-law. i then told him that my aunt said to me once that out of my 2 sisters & me, if one day when we get married, she said that she will miss me the most (not trying to say that she wouldn’t miss my other sisters or anything).

so, this morning my youngest sister talked to me about it & now, she doesn’t want to talk to me. I’m not trying to make my other sisters feel bad or anything. they misunderstood the whole conversation. of course they are going to miss me & my sisters when we get married. I’m not trying to make myself look or sound better. I’m not perfect. I’m not trying to compete w/ my sisters. i love my sisters & it’s not my job to make myself look good. my job is to make them better than myself.
