NOT EVERY WOMAN WANTS TO BE A MOTHER and it's OKAY.
Mother's day is around the corner and as much light as there is around this lovely holiday, celebrating those who brought us to this life, or to be celebrated as mothers... to some of us it's is a crucial reminder of the clock, or the "musts" and "shoulds" as a """woman""". A common perception is that you'll be a mother one way or another, and we are taught this since we are little kids. All my life Until about 2 years ago, whenever I was asked if I wanted to have my own family/kids I'd almost automatically say "but yes of course". I never truly sat on this and never truly discovered if this was my natural desire OR something that wasn't mine at all. After nearly two months of backpacking in Europe, I found my own opinions on such important matters. Outside various family disagreements on this topic many people pressured me in passive aggressive ways and very confident that I would change my mind. It's SO annoying to see people's discomfort with you, and how badly they still want you to change. It IS possible to have a very fulfilling life without children, look at many celebrities with strong voices and personalities. No, I'm not telling you to not want children or marriage. I'm asking you to see within and find that answer for yourself, same goes to your career choice, your boyfriend, husband, car, dress .. YOUR true opinion. Because the truth you find may alter your life towards where you want it to go. My dear friend wanted to have a daughter so so much but his partner at a time was very closed off to having children. Eventually they broke up and my friend met somebody he is so happy with and for now their ideas on future mostly compliment each other and boy, they are working on what they both want !!!!! Teheheheee.
IF you don't want to have children, its really OKAY . You may have dedicated your life mothering adults instead?
But also you are a mother of great ideas, mother of artistic expressions, mother of abundant love! So HAPPY Mother's Day to YOU also!!!! I'm celebrating all women on this day. Mwah, khrystyana photo by @ryskiewicz with a baby plant!!!! #beautyrevised
