A Woman’s Place In Home

Though the border between a man and a woman has been quite shortened. Now, there is no field in which woman has not stepped foot and succeeded.

But still, some people following the old tradition still believe that a woman’s actual place is in home. Yes, there are many roles of a woman that cannot be replaced by any other, like:

A mother:

Though many men prove to be great daddies who take well care of their kids, but a mother can never be replaced by any other relation or person. A mother has an important role in child’s development, character building and attitudes. “It’s a little wonder that a child gravitates to mother” says, Chuck Smith.

A sister:

Being a boy/man you might have a brother with whom you have great bonding with, but a sister’s role is completely matchless. A sister would be the one you always can look up to, and who will be there for you in the toughest times of life. In the absence of mother, she will take care of you like one. Pssst! Expectations and reality can vary, she can be a brainteaser too!

A daughter:

A shoulder, a delightful cheer, daddy’s little angel and a blessing in disguise. There is no language that can describe what a daughter means to her parents. With that elder daughters have a huge responsibility on their shoulders.

A wife:

She’s not just the one a man shares bed with. She is a confidant, the person you have kids with, a bridge that connects the whole family, travel partner, the person in front of whom you can take your mask off and a soul mate with whom you are emotionally wired. Seems to be a wife is someone that can mean the whole world to you and even more.

But that’s not it, a woman is warrior who never quits, she is the one who holds everything together when the world falls apart. Harriet says “Women are true architects of society” because of them the society is what it is, or else things would have been rebellious.

Stasi and john Elredge state in their book “Captivating: unveiling mystery of a woman’s soul” that “It is a dangerous thing to underestimate your role in the story”.

You might think that a woman’s place is in a home that is agreeable to some extent as she runs a healthy and happy functioning family. It is very important for a woman to be there and fulfil her duties as given by nature and the society.

But you are forgetting one thing, a woman’s strength and boundary is not confined to her home. She is unstoppable even when she steps her feet outside her home. She is unbelievable because she can make impossible happen, she is complete in her own feminine way. You want to have a glimpse of some extraordinary women? Just scroll down.
