not to be picky or anything
You're going to miss out on a lot then.
I get the idea that its painful, but I have a feeling that it's worth it in the end.
Yeah I know kids can be a blessing, but I guess I'm not one of those ones who doesn't want to become a mother. Sounds bad saying it like that, but it makes sense to not have kids, if your not prepared to pull your weight all through it (birth and raising)
I guess that's why I get annoyed at those parents (especially if they are young) who didn't want kids, but because of *ehem* accidental circumstances, they end up having a new life to take care of, when they can't even take care of themselves, or just plain not prepared
I'm a twenty-eight year-old female and my husband and I have come to a similar agreement. I have many friends as well who have chosen not to have children and they are very happy.
I agree that children are a blessing but you don't have to have your own to experience that. I work as an elementary teacher and I have 30 students I look after for 40+ hours a week. Helping those children learn and grow is all the kid-experience I need!
Please don't ever change your mind or become saddened because of someone else's opinion on your chosen lifestyle. I wish you the best.
I'm glad you and I speak the same language. Although I am only 20, I am at the age where I can choose what I want to do and who I want to be
I like taking care of kids too, and there is always the option of adoption or fostering
Well, who knows? You may change your mind someday. I get that some people are not prepared to take the responsibility either. But during those "accidental" circumstances, it usually comes from a lack of self control and responsibility. It kind of shows how messed up our world is today.
