Emotional support that gives you strength.

A lot of people ask me how I manage to go away from my family for such extended periods. For example, during this trip, I am away for 11 weeks.

It is tough. It is very hard on myself and my family, too, but I think I am lucky to be blessed with an incredibly supportive husband who not only allowed me to implement my business dreams but keeps supporting me during all these years on all my Trips.

To me, the essential elements to my success are our conversations. Whenever possible, we spend hours talking on WhatsApp, sharing our ups and downs, emotions, experiences, and concerns. I am a lucky woman who has an extremely supportive husband who listens, analyses, gives advice and simply cares.

We enjoy talking over the events of the day to understand our feelings better and seek room for improvement.
I strongly believe that the ability to share what is on your mind, your feelings, and your problems is the key to success. This is what makes a marriage not just two people living together and having kids, but this is what allows you to develop as a whole new entity that is, in many ways, stronger and more efficient than an individual.

A lot of my female friends expressed their concerns about me being away for so long and trusting my husband to stay loyal to me. I am sure it is their personal experience or the feeling of insecurity or distrust that causes them such thoughts.

When I go away, I never even bother about such things. I fully trust because I am loyal to myself, and I know for sure that he is, too. People who love and appreciate and honor others will never step beyond the limits. And it is not that we are setting those limits. It is simply what responsible adults do. They don't cheat. They don't keep secrets. They talk, and they share. And this is what makes my days go by fast.

Because of the time difference, We talk two times a day, usually when I wake up, and it is his late afternoon, and when I am off to bed, and it is his morning.
Hearing the voice of the one who is so special gives you strength and motivation to win and succeed!
Talk to the ones you love. Tell them you love them, too. It is unbelievably powerful.
