Letter to the 21st Century Housewife


Letter to the 21st Century Housewife

The world around all of us is evolving and shifting gradually and it is fast becoming the women's era. This is simply because of a lot of activism defending women's rights, so more women are realizing that they have a choice. It’s a wonderful and important movement, but it also means there is now some stigma attached to going the other way and choosing to stay home to raise the kids. Before getting drowned in something that is not who you are, there are things you should know:

You don’t need to follow the crowd

Just because everyone is doing it does not mean that you should. If you enjoy being a housewife, or you have deemed  it necessary for your family, it does not make you any less valid than other women who have a career. It's important to always look out for yourself and  root out negative thoughts.


Being a Housewife is a Job and a tough one

One of the best things you can do for yourself  is acknowledging what your job entails and how important it is to everyone. If you have kids, you're building them up to be better people in the society. Your husband gets to come home to peace and not worry about the home because he knows you’ve got it covered. You play at least 15 different roles at home everyday. Don’t underestimate that.

You're not a slave

In all honesty, you will be faced with quite a lot of criticism for choosing to stay at home. Do not let this make you second-guess yourself.  Provided you agreed with the decision, you have simply done what’s best for you and your family
