You always hear how the children are our future, but I don’t believe it. Some children are brought into this world with two loving parents while others are brought into a world with damaged parents who take out their hard lives on their children. I don’t know what kind of parent I would be, and that’s what scares me. Children are not in my future, because I don’t think I would make a good parent, I’m not very fond of children, and I’m not too keen of ruining my body with pregnancy.
A Bad Parent
I don’t feel I have the right skills to raise a child. I’m just trying to take care of myself, and that’s hard enough. I don’t think I’m very sympathetic nor do I have the social skills to lead a child to success in life with other people. I think I would panic if a baby cries. I wouldn’t begin to know what they want. In order to raise a child I would have to be selfless and put the needs of the child before mine and I don’t think I’ll ever be ready to do this.
Me Plus Children Equals Uneasy
Children make me nervous. I never know what they’re thinking. When I see a mother with two or three kids, I wonder how she can stand it. When they act badly and a mother is doing nothing to correct the behavior, I just know I would feel so out of control. It’s too much stress to deal with. Plus I don’t think children are too fond of me either.
Pregnancy takes its toll on the body. It changes it in a way I would never want to go through. Pregnancy is not pretty because of throwing up and not to mention the stretch marks, and we can’t forget the birth. It’s not a miracle. Women give birth everyday. There’s nothing amazing about a human being coming out of a woman. It’s painful and gross!
I’m not here to change women’s minds about starting a family. This is just my opinion on the subject. If you feel as a woman that you want children and are willing to go through the process of having children, then that’s your choice. My future is my choice, and I choose to have no children. Everyone should be happy with the choices they make in life.
