Just a spin-off thought from another thread where unfortunately seems for lots of us working is a significant contributor to feelings of self worth. But lots of SAHM's do maintain great self worth. My mum did I am sure. Just wonder if anyone has some tips about how they do this role without allowing societies negative view of us to affect them? I think in my mums day SAHMs were the norm so that helped, they knew nothing different and they had more support - less no doubt from partners - but probably had more friends in the same boat, family around. At least I can see that's the main difference between me and my mum and even my sister who lives close to mum and her husbands family. I don't think being SAHM has affected her like it has for me (I have no family in this country and all my friends are back at work)
But maybe that's just me, I'd be curious to hear what other confident self assured SAHM's feel. What has helped you to maintain your identity/self worth?
