I don’t think I want to be a mom, but my family insists on it.
I (27F) don’t think I want to have children. There just seems to be more cons than pros. I always hear of how stressful motherhood is. I don’t trust that I can handle it.
Having to take care of a human for 18 years seems like too much.
Plus I’m not sure if I can even protect them from all the dangers in this world. I’d be absolutely devastated if anything happened to this person.
Even if they’re an adult. I’ll never be able to stop worrying about them, which is really irking me.
Being without children seems way more freeing. I can basically go and do what I want. If I ever get married, I can spend time with my husband without worrying over the kids.
Our Life will be significantly better. We can make more money since kids are very expensive. Just seems more peaceful and ideal for me.
But my mom keeps telling me it’s my duty to have children. I might change my mind, but I hate how she’s trying to decide for me.
