Role conflict: I am both a full-time student and a mom, and these roles often conflict with each other. When I first started going to Keiser there were some classes that I had to be there by 8:00 AM; the conflict was that I also had to drive my kids to school, and they were not aloud to be dropped off before 7:30 AM. At the time I was going to the Daytona Beach campus that was only a 30-minute drive with light traffic, which meant that there were some days that I would be late to class because of heavy traffic. The way I resolved this issue was to speak with my professors and explain my situation; most of them worked with me and said it would not be an issue. I learn that I should not be ashamed of being a student while also being a mom.
              Role Strain: I experienced role strain in my role as a student; this experience was very recent. In the beginning of my advanced chemistry class, I got COVID, and I was bed ridden for a few weeks. I was unable to sit up because it made me feel lightheaded, and I only got out of bed to go to the bathroom. I took an Incomplete for the class and was told by my advisor that I could finish it while I was taking my next class which was organic chemistry. So, I had two chemistry classes to do and only four weeks to complete them both with a passing grade. I resolved this issue by speaking to my professor and to my advisor and they both agreed to give me an extension to make up the incomplete classwork. I learned that I could do a lot more than I thought I could, and I should never be afraid to ask for help.

Role conflict occurs when there is conflict between the different roles that a person takes on in their everyday lives. This conflict occurs when you have different expectations from two or more social positions (Schaefer, 2019). These roles create tension and conflict as a person must make the choice between which task pertaining to these roles they should do.
 In my case, my status as mother, student and entrepreneur creates role conflict for me. My role as a mother and part-time freelancer is my main conflict. I am consistently finding myself having to choose between my role as a mother and my everyday task of making sure my kids are fed, clothed and happy and having to fulfill my freelance duties which need to be delivered in a timely manner. Having to consistently pick between these two roles created conflict for me and eventually results in the sacrifice of my mood and/or the delivery of my products.
The way I resolve my role conflict is to always stay ahead of my schedule and plan. I know my kids need to eat and have clean clothes so I always meal plan and make sure I stay on top of the laundry. When I get a freelance order, I feel like I have time and energy capital because I have created (a very small) gap to make sure that I can deliver in a timely manner. For the moment, I can maintain these roles until the fires become too much for me and my role exit as freelancer will begin.
Role strain is the difficulty that you face when a social position has conflicting expectations(Schaefer, 2019). This occurs when a person faces stressor and may find themselves unable to balance all their duties in one role. For me, my role as a freelancer creates a lot of conflicting decisions for me. When working in my freelance job I must deliver work the way the client wants it not the way that I would do it. I find myself having to make choices that the client would like versus the way that I would do it. This is hard for me since I would like my work to be reflected a certain way. 
The main takeaway between role strain and role conflict is that role conflict pertains to all the roles that a person has and how they conflict with each other and result in stress and sacrifice while role strain is when a person experience conflict within one role. Ultimately, both role strain and role conflict involve a person to analyze their priority and consider the consequences of their decisions.
