Three Heroes in My Life: People who Shaped My Life

A woman's success is significantly influenced by the men in her life, and the institution of marriage holds a major significance in shaping her journey, both positively and negatively. Choosing a good life partner becomes paramount for nurturing inner harmony and fostering professional growth. My dadpartner for thirty years, has always been my first hero, but in this blog, I would like to shed light on another remarkable hero in my life.

Pregnancy brings profound physical and emotional transformations in a woman's life, prompting her to recognize the invaluable presence of a supportive partner. The purpose of this post is not to boast about my own fortune, but to challenge the common misconception that men are incapable of providing genuine support and understanding. I, too, held such beliefs before marriage, but I want to assure women that there are men out there who truly love, care for their partners, and hold deep respect for women. While they may be rare, they do exist, and it is crucial for us to seek them out.

If you are a man reading this, I hope this post will inspire you to wholeheartedly support your pregnant wife. Understanding her anxieties and insecurities during this phase may be challenging, but the support you offer will be cherished for a lifetime.

Now, let's delve into the essence of this article.

As an expectant mother, I was overwhelmed with anxiety and self-doubt about the upcoming labor. However, having a supportive partner by my side transformed my fears into hope and optimism. My partner not only believed in my abilities but also encouraged me to pursue my dreams of writing a book, making movies, and raising our children to the best of my capabilities.

During my pregnancy, I experienced minimal morning sickness at first. However, as the second month approached, I was hit with constant nausea, often vomiting everything I consumed. In this exhausting time, my partner became my unwavering support system. He held my head while I was sick and took care of the aftermath.

His consistent love and support gave me the strength and motivation to navigate the challenges of pregnancy. Each day, I grew more confident in my ability to overcome any obstacles that came my way.

Throughout the ups and downs of pregnancy, my partner remained a steady and dependable presence in my life. His unwavering support and encouragement helped me conquer my fears and self-doubt, and I will forever be grateful for his enduring love and belief in me.

He never once asked me to cook dinner and always made sure I was well-fed, even when I had food cravings. When heartburn struck, he provided me with soothing juice to ease my discomfort.

As my pregnancy progressed, even simple tasks like cutting my nails became challenging. My partner willingly helped me, trimming my nails and never hesitating to reach my feet or tie my shoes.

He made it a point to accompany me to every maternity appointment, prioritizing them over his own work commitments. He always arranged pillows to ensure my comfort during back pain and even offered hot pack massages to relieve my discomfort.

With the hormonal changes during pregnancy, emotional control can be difficult. While I was fortunate not to experience major outbursts, I did have moments of unexplained weeping and crankiness. My partner accepted my peculiar behavior and constantly reassured me that I was normal, reminding me that I was his greatest gift.

Though we had our fair share of arguments, his sense of humor always dissolved the tension, and we would end up laughing together, letting go of any anger or chaos, and moving forward.

As an active runner, he gave up running when I became pregnant and gained weight alongside me. Whenever I asked why, he would simply say, "I am gaining weight so that you don't feel guilty about your own weight gain." At the time, I didn't fully believe his words, but after giving birth, he resumed his running routine. Now I realize he meant every word. This selfless act is something not every man would do.

I hold immense respect for him, so much so that when I emerged from labor, he was the first person I wanted to see, and there he was, waiting for me. My pregnancy journey wouldn't have been as joyful without his unwavering support.

Dear partner, I consider myself the luckiest person in the world for having met you and making the best decision of marrying you. I thank you for placing your trust in me. I will never forget your support and kindness, and I express my gratitude every day when I see our son. You are my safe haven, and I love you deeply.

And yes, did I mention the third hero in my life? It's our son.
