When a woman says she doesn’t want to have kids, she can expect everything from a reassuring statement that she will soon enough, to something accusatory about her mother’s desire for grandchildren or how she’s depriving her husband. Unfortunately, all of these things are exactly the things that shouldn’t be said. These are the women we should be grateful for.
With populations at record highs all over the globe, we don’t desperately need all the females to start reproducing. Those who don’t want kids tend to be stronger and smarter than the rest because they have to fight off all the expectations society burdens them with. It is not right to bring a child into this world just because it’s what everyone else expects from you, or because someone said you’d be a wonderful mother. You should only do so when you honestly want to have a baby to cherish and nurture.
The brave ladies who are quite sure that they do not want children are those who will never bend or turn back on what they believe in, even if their significant other threatens to leave them for those beliefs. They know that anything worthy requires effort. They understand that everyone’s experience of life is different and there’s no single belief system that is more right than the others. When all people realize this and believe in what they wish without trying to put down the beliefs of others, we can be sure that we are heading towards a better future.
These women have more time and energy to develop themselves and help other people to develop. As a race, we are currently in a crisis wherein we are facing mass violence and hardship. We require those willing and able to devote their lives to help their countries, as well as the rest of the world.
While those women who want to give birth and bring up their kids so that they may be excellent human beings are vital to our society, those who have other goals are just as necessary. The expectations placed on women to be mothers in order to be complete are wrong and unnecessary. We all have to be able to see the truth for ourselves and make the choices that will positively impact those we love and the rest of the planet. Remember that the world should be grateful for your existence.
