When we are young girls many messages stick with us. We never really know the impact these words have on use until we get much older and can look back and see just how they impacted us as we were growing. These words of wisdom can be anything from true heartfelt advice to funny anecdotes that have us laughing, but still have truth to them.
Usually something our mother’s have said to us sticks with us until the day we die. My mom was a stay-at-home-mom and although she did not have much career advice to give me, I do remember her telling me a few times that I should “be able to support and take care of myself”. This statement has played in my head for years and has had a tremendous impact on me. Because of her words of advice, I have done exactly that – I am a very independent and self-sufficient person and pride myself on being able to “support and take care of myself”. I have been married for 11 years to my wonderful husband but I have never solely depended on my husband financially to take care of our family and our responsibilities. I am proud that I can help support our family and contribute to our financial well being. This is something that for me personally, is so important.
