Why I stayed? Well, I am easily contented with what I have. As long as the income is enough for all my family needs, I am satisfied. But recently, there’s an additional to the family member and hubby started his own business in which the business is not making much profit yet. I felt pressured to look for extra income to cover for him.
My colleague who has been working in the same company for 10 years and his salary is hardly 3k. A manager post some more. He is 39 already and planning to start his own business too by 40. Can’t survive with just “makan gaji” especially with 3 children.
I am thinking of leaving too. I love teaching. So, either I teach in kindergarten, however the income is not so much, or I give tuition from home, or I offer babysitting service. I love children too. But that got to wait until hubby earn more profit in his business and then we won’t depend so much on my income to support the family then I will do one of the above.
