Why your partner is NOT the source of your STABILITY and SECURITY in the world, financial or otherwise...
'I am COMFORTABLE with my husband supporting me financially and being the breadwinner', I almost choked to death when I heard what I thought was a HUGELY successsful business owner say.
And so WAS my mother...
Then on one sad winter day of January 2002 her husband NEVER made it back home...
He died prematurely at the young age of 49 while selling SCRAP METAL to put food on the table.
He worked himself to DEATH leaving his widowed wife and 5 daughters with no means to live.
Still sitting COMFORTABLE in your chair?
I didn't think so!
Now, how COMFORTABLE do you think my mother was with her husband being the breadwinner when that happened?
Did you just become a little unsettled and UNCOMFORTABLE in your swing chair or did I just imagine things?
When you become too comfortable in your comfort zone and with what's comfortable in your life the Universe will force you to become comfortable with the UNCOMFORTABLE!
Her life circumstances FORCED her to become the BREADWINNER she was so comfortable with having her husband as!
The thing is...
When you make something outside of you your source of safety or stability in life, the Universe is set up to FAIL you to return you to the REAL source within.
Now, what's behind the statement...
'I am COMFORTABLE with my husband being the breadwinner'
Are you REALLY?
Now a little DISCLAIMER:
I am by no means making stay at home mums or housewives WRONG.
What I am against is having no plan of action for the INEVITABLE.
What I am against is MENTAL LAZINESS.
'I am COMFORTABLE with my husband being the breadwinner'.
What a convinient excuse to give your power away!
And disown your CREATIVE GENIUS.
With certain lack of responsibility comes certain lack of power.
Who else does NOT have the money?
Kids are NOT expected to pay.
But with the lack of money comes certain lack of power.
What makes you think you don't have that kind of power?
