Getting up early isn’t a privilege. Even if you are at home, you still get up earlier than the children. Just to get your mind and coffee in gear. (For those who consume coffee, for those who don’t there is tea, hot chocolate, or my favourite wine).
I got up one day and I figured I can be a single parent without any help. Without another person making any input. After all, I am secure in myself. I’m a confident, beautiful, successful woman. What do I need another person to decide about schools, where parties should/shouldn’t be? Why do I need another voice of reason?
We are not privileged enough to ‘take a mental health’ day. God forbid we actually do what the judgement would be. Maybe death by the galleons?
