Received some not-so-good news (career wise) from my supervisor that fateful Monday. It upset me to the core. Upset not only in being sad but in being angry as well.
Told myself after an hour or two to just forget about it. You can't really argue with management's decisions after all.
Was talking to my mum about it after two days. She made one statement :-Do not ever let your supervisor know that you do not have the heart to leave your son to go for overseas business trips, even though it may last from 2 weeks to 1 month. Coz no matter how good motherhood or marriage may be, seeing your colleagues advance faster that you cannot make up for the frustration you will feel.
It doesn't feel that way right now. And although I do not really want to hear that, I can see the truth behind the remark.
So career or parenthood.....
Is it ever a choice?
