I came across this article about a woman who regrets having kids last week. I urge you to read through it carefully because while I do not regret having my daughter and never will, I can honestly say I understand what she is saying. Which is not to be confused with agreeing with her.
She clearly loves her kids and did everything she could to ensure their well-being. However, I wonder if she would have been better off not having kids. The last paragraph is what gets me. She says she'd gladly do anything for her kids. That is a clear sign of love. Society may not agree and I may be in the minority but I give her kudos for being honest with herself while at the same time, doing the best she could. Many claim to love their kids only to abuse them. That does not appear to be the case here.
Being a mother has been the most rewarding thing I have done to date. I love waking up and seeing the smile on my daughter's face and I would never regret having her.
What are your thoughts on this article? I think she is just expressing something others out there feel but don't talk about because it is frowned upon.
Happy Tuesday readers!
