Psst. I have a secret to tell. 🗣️ You don’t have to love being the breadwinner. Insert silent pause [here] for a gasp and pearl clutch.
Believe it or not, there are times I haven’t been thrilled about it when I was single or partnered.
I am thankful and always have been for what it allows be to provide, but I haven’t always OWNED it.
As a single person, you might not even think of yourself as the breadwinner. Honey, have I got news for you! If you’re providing the primary source of income for your household, welcome to the club, my friend. 😉 You’re the breadwinner.
Owning it is what allows you to proudly embrace your wonderful status. It changes the course how you experience it.
You will still have days where you aren’t overly thrilled and days where you’re ecstatic, but the resentment that can creep in and the overwhelming times will become fewer and further in between. The difference between how your days play out depends on your mindset.
You’ll learn things about yourself you never imagined possible You’ll create a path that feels true to who you are becoming in the process.
Journey on, my friends, and know there’s an entire community of us wo can relate and are rooting for you.
