Hi Soujanya,

Thanks for your response! This article was difficult to write, because I was afraid it would come off to elitist or privileged. However, we all spend money for convenience and sometimes that money could be better used. I think spending money on a house cleaner, so that you have more time with your children is absolutely a great way to spend money.

Women are so often trying to do it all, look like we have it all and not show an ounce of exhaustion. How exhausting. I am much more willing to ask for help now because I would much rather feel better than look like I have it all together, because none of us really do.

I write about issues that are near and dear to my heart, with the hope that my stories, experiences, and struggles may empower others: amanlitt.ca
