It has not been easy

Many years back, Marie Curie said, "I have frequently been questioned, especially by women, of how I could reconcile family life with a scientific career. Well, it has not been easy."
Over the decades, a lot has changed, but balancing priorities hasn't got any easier. If anything, it has only got worse, because so many other things have started demanding time and attention. But easy or hard, prioritisation is something that has to be done by every woman, and we do.
But could we do it without judging the woman who’s priorities may not be exactly the same as ours?

My sisters fight about this almost all the times. Both married with children, one a devoted SAHM, the other a freelance photographer with a degree in pedagogy. What I am going to do when I have got family? Who knows... luckily the cats are pretty self-sufficient.

I agree.

Women seem to judge each other too much, and I think some of it comes from jealousy. We want people to believe we have it all, and sometimes we feel like someone has it better.

We worry so much about the world tearing us down, but it's just as bad that we tear each other down too.

So true Rayna...and Marie was killing herself with her science (literally).

Amen....we need to worry about ourselves and not each other.
