My company is relatively a start-up and very cooperative in providing the women employees the right work-life balance. So, if a woman needs/wishes, she can opt for half-time, half-pay.
I don’t need it because my son is well taken care of by my In-laws. I miss spending more time with him, but it’s not a requirement. Perhaps, I feel like our work-hours have become long because of my depending on Tarun for returning. Also, ever since we started the gym, my time away has increased. I want to balance it.
I am not totally comfortable with this option. And, I do want to do something to improve the work-life balance. I want to spend more time with Anay but I’m not sure what exactly I would do with him in that time. Would I be just idling it all away sleeping? Or, will I waste it talking to MIL or doing house-hold stuff. Or, would I actually be able to come up with things to do with Anay.
I am liking my job a lot. I am liking the challenges coming my way. I want to do it justice. I want to make my mark here. I’ll lose a lot of it if I take this option.
Should I take this bargain?
I am very uncertain.
Tell me, what do you think I should do?
