Don’t allow anyone to tell you that you cannot take a break. Don’t let them make you feel less than for needing to do so. Make the best decision for yourself and your mental health.
Now is the time to get your things in order. Change your usual way of living, sell what you can, and downsize your house if staying home with your children is a priority. Once you've reached your goal, there are different ways of generating income.
