Take it off your chest...
Read Rules

I hate gender roles. But at the same time I'd love to just get married early, live creatively from home, have the perfect house, the most beautiful garden and view. I want three kiddos and a man whom I love, feel attracted to and whom I can rely on for the rest of my life. I want to be my husband's best friend and lover.All in all, I want THE perfect life. But my family is really emancipated, and even though I feel like I want to be, too, I can't help but wanting the more traditional way of life. I'm ashamed of myself, and feel like having to accomplish much more than I am eager to.

  • You're not the only one, believe me. I think it's totally natural when we just want to stay at home and be a loving wife and mother, but saying that out loud is almost unacceptable because of our society and the media pushing the thought of independent women. Don't get me wrong, it's awesome that we live in a time where (in most countries) women can achieve what they want and aren't dominated by men. But our society doesn't get it that wishing to stay home is just as an independent decision as for example wanting to become the head of a company. Don't be ashamed, life isn't about achieving great goals, but about living the way we want to ;)
