Through our unending quest to make the big money, many people find themselves following someone else’s rules to get there.
Friends are special people to have in your life. We all need someone we can confide in, have fun with and concoct crazy schemes and adventures with. But what happens when friends have a fight? This can be a really devastating experience for some relationships, especially if you have never had a fight before.
e Strong. You chose to be childfree for a reason, whatever it might be, and you are no less of a human being for it. Society may shun you, chastise you, and pressure you, but do not let them tear you down and ruin your life just because it is something ‘they’ want. And remember, you are not alone. Draw strength and support from your fellow CF sisters and brothers.
I love going, and I love cosplay, and the thought of not being able to do either, or at least doing a lot less than I currently do, annoys me. I love kids, but if that limits my ability to have a hobby, then I don’t want them.
Stop letting people think you are weird just because you have an opinion that isn’t the same as theirs. Children are not for everyone. The world is overpopulated anyway. Hold your head up high and ENJOY being childfree! We have the kind of life that makes many envious – and I’m proud to say I do not take my decision for granted. I live life to its fullest – childfree!
Most little girls dream, at one point, of finding her Prince (or Princess) Charming and living ‘happily ever after’. The notion is a romantic one, but unfortunately the reality is far from fanciful. According to Statistics Canada from 2001 to 2010 there were approximately 71,000 divorces per year in Canada. Those numbers are quite significant when you consider there are 34 million people in the country and there are 140 – 150,000 marriages per year.
Accepting responsibility for your life
It is easy to lay blame on everyone else for everything bad that happens in life. I spent many years saying things like, why does life always treat me this way? Why do I always get screwed over? Why me??
As a childfree chick you’re probably up close and personal with the subject of birth control (if you’re not you should probably get up close…real close!) There have been major advances in birth control over the last 60 some odd years (thank goodness). From a one time oops I need some NOW, to making it permanent, women have never been more empowered when it comes to preventing pregnancy, and if you’re here, you most definitely want to prevent pregnancy, am I right?
Yes my friends, it is true. This is not stuff of legend, but in fact a reality. 30 year old virgins do exist among us. In today’s society it is hard for most of us to imagine that anyone can make it out of high school with their virginity intact, much less through college.
We’ve been raised in a society that condemns self-love. It judges us and labels us as narcissistic when we decide to take care of ourselves first. This is probably something you’ve experienced anytime you’ve stated you don’t want children. How DARE you want to take care of yourself instead of some human being that doesn’t yet (nor will ever) exist; so selfish right!
