Sharing the Load is something which we always try to avoid. We have written few things not in the books but on our minds that certain things are meant to be done by certain people which is incorrect when we look at it in the true context.
Gone are days when Womanhood is suppressed saying that they are only fit to cook and nothing else as today you could see Woman occupying top posts in MNC with a few worthy examples like Indra Nooyi, Naina Lal Kidwai, Chandha Kochchar, Anu Aga, Lakshmi Srinivasan from India.
Why are we averse in sharing the load?
This is mostly because of two factors. Either we are lazy or we are afraid of taking up the responsibility. When this happen there is a confusion and the so called Peace is taken for a toss.
By sharing the load, we can ensure that lot of things are taken care. All in the house especially the spouse would be happy. This can lead to greater boost of morale and when you share the load with some one you can see the retrospective effect for sure.
What all to share?
I would say almost everything from Cooking to Shopping. While Men can help Women in cooking – by taking smaller activities like chopping, peeling of vegetable, washing vessels if not all, Women can compliment men by paying bills – of electricity, corporation tax, insurance bills etc which is now been made easy with the advent of Mobile Apps. This can be done easily by sitting at home leisurely.
If we do share few things like this which looks pretty simple and you need not have to sweat it out really, it can surely make a lot of difference.
Firstly, it would bring lot of happiness in the household.
Secondly, there will be a greater understanding and strong bonding is ensured.
You would also get the real feeling that some one is there to take care of you / us.
When you start doing this, you would also become a role model and you would become an example for the others in your locality. While this will eventually make you feel proud, do not get carried away by it but continue to do the same thing which you have been doing and you would see that it becomes an habit by default.
What happens as a consequence?
You will become a HERO – to your WIFE!!!
