My boyfriend and I are planning to marry and I am thinking to be a housewife as I cannot get a good job and struggling to breakthrough in the career I want to persue. I have been told that I am overconfident and opinionated and cannot gel with people at times and feel that this costs me interviews and I cannot land jobs. I am also a perfectionist and feel that these are some of my shortcomings that make it hard for me to progress. Have large outstanding student loan and cannot pay off to finish final year of my degree? I have a baby (9month old) who needs my love and attention and maybe I should just be a mom to her and be a housewife and just accept the situation for now.
I dont know how long I will remain a housewife should I decide to, maybe it will be a temporary or permanent decision. Will I regret it if I end up doing it?

Depends on why you want a career. I don't like most career oriented people. They seem like snobs that strive for a reason to look down on others that follow a different path. They never actually seem happy to me, because they aren't doing what they love, but are instead doing what society taught them they need to do, so they won't feel ashamed of being a worthless person. If that is your reason you want a career, I suggest you work on how you define your value as a person.
The people that strive for a career, that really have a calling or passion for what they do, tend to be far more pleasant and happy. If this is your reason then I would suggest that you keep up your efforts to get into the career of your choosing.
There is also the possibility that you could find happiness in a different job path, that give plenty of time for your child. Such as someone suggested starting your own company from home.0
