All we do is work without half of the support that she has.

I am not going to bash Kim. She is a victim. She has proved that money cannot save you from being harassed by your ex-husband. I have compassion for her, and her children as do many women.

However, her comments about how women need to get their asses to work were so hurtful and insensitive to all women. I would love to share with her how I would love to get my ass up and go straight to work.

I am a morning person. I think clearly and have a lot of energy as soon as I wake up. However, I can’t. Instead of having the luxury of going straight to work, I must make two trips to two different schools at two different times. I also must make breakfast for my kids and do their hair. Then I come home and wash the dirty dishes from breakfast, throw in a load of laundry and take care of other chores.

If I am lucky, I am at my desk by 10:00 a.m. I can work for a solid 3 hours. I’m also in charge of our home finances, and my family’s individual needs so I need to block out about an hour for that daily. Around 2 pm, I pick up my children from school. After dinner, homework, and extracurricular activities, I am sometimes able to return to work around 7 p.m. I manage to get in only another hour because then I am exhausted from my day and am ready for bed.

I’m grateful to be in my position. I have a supportive husband who has taken on extra hours at work so that I can be at home working on my dream and ensuring that our children are safe.

I do what I do with love. But I am human. My love language is words of affirmation. I am a girl’s girl. I support women and I lean on women for support as well. So, when a woman of high status like Kim is being so insensitive it hurts. I know that she has a lot of fans who look up to her and her comments must have affected them more than me. Women to women we need to build each other up instead of tearing each other down.

Every woman I know is exhausted. Some of us burned out and it may seem like they “don’t want to work”, but the truth is they have nothing left to give. They need a break. We should applaud these women for making the hard decision to put themselves first, not…
