8 INSTANCES WHERE IT'S MY CHOICE, BUT ALSO MY RESPONSIBILITY

When the whole world is fighting for equality, I sit back and think about what’s really going on around the globe, in some people’s minds. I have observed how this particular phrase has been taken for granted without any responsibility by so many. Therefore, I decided to write this post. Perhaps it will give some of you an idea about what I’m trying to say.

Yes, it’s my choice to study, marry, have kids or work. But, I believe that with it comes responsibility, too. So, here are at least 10 instances where I believe that even though it’s my choice, I also have a responsibility tied to it.

BLOGGING/INSTAGRAMMING

Blogging has become everyone’s passion now that it is known to have made people rich (not me). It’s my choice to blog but while learning more about the world of blogging, I came across a ‘learning’ that said ‘BAD NEWS SELLS’. Though I know it is true, I thought that my responsibility was to give my audience an honest heading, title or summary according to my positive content. I feel it is my responsibility to be as true as possible, especially when it may affect people’s minds about life. I believe that it is my duty to advertise (on Instagram) only the items we use and not just anything and everything just because I’m getting paid.

DRESSING UP

Yes, it’s my choice what I choose to wear. But, I think it is also my responsibility to look decent. I feel that as my kids learn from me, I have a responsibility to show them how to look elegant and feel comfortable when outside the house and not just wear anything tasteless just because we have the right to.

STUDYING

I’m not crazy about studying but it was my choice (back in the day) to do a Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science. I scored 97% in Information Technology and I was ready to take on the challenge. To my dismay, we weren’t able to spend that kind of money and therefore settled for a degree in Commerce. Back then, I felt I had a responsibility to support my single mom and not push her into unwanted debts in a man’s world, so, sacrificed my interests at the time. Later, I did do a Diploma in Computer Science though.

MARRYING

As a young girl, I was mostly serious in my relationships. Marriage was always on my mind. But, after getting married, it was also my responsibility to try and make things work. It was my responsibility to give it my all. It is said that marriages have been made in heaven after all. 😉

HAVING KIDS

Yes, ours were unplanned. But, I still chose to give birth, twice. So, I think it is our responsibility to care for them and not leave them to grow up on their own. God gave us little ones, and I believe that we have to enjoy these moments and bring up good individuals with a smile.

GOSSIPING

It may be my choice to listen when it’s happening around me, but I think it is also my responsibility to avoid repeating the same details elsewhere. I believe that it is my duty to not further gossip about other people to other people.

STAYING AT HOME

I had a barrage of questions when I made this choice. It was completely the opposite of what I was back in Kuwait. Even I was surprised with myself. But, as a stay-at-home-mom, it was my obligation to give my kids the attention they need. I felt it was also my responsibility to support my ambitious husband in whatever he wanted to do. And, most importantly, it was only my responsibility to find things (that I love) to keep myself busy and sane throughout the day. Here are 10 reasons why I still enjoy being a SAHM.

WORKING FROM HOME

Yes, it’s my choice to work from home because I cannot see myself going back to an office and working under someone (unless I NEED to). It’s my choice to take up only interesting projects and campaigns. It’s my choice to work from home. But, I think that it’s also my responsibility to take care of my home.

Personally, I feel that in today’s world when we are blessed to have the right to choose what we want to do, say or be, we must remember that we have responsibilities, too. In short, let’s all try to implement the phrase ‘It’s my choice’ responsibly. 😊
