I get asked all the time why I don’t want/have kids! Or I get that pity eye. Yup! That one right there! I caught it!
I recently read excerpts from Jennifer Aniston’s interview in the September 2018 InStyle magazine and I want to scream, “YES!”. Because, basically, this is how I would respond to this question:
“They don’t know what I’ve been through medically or emotionally. There is a pressure on women to be mothers, and if they are not, then they’re deemed damaged goods. Maybe my purpose on this planet isn’t to procreate. Maybe I have other things I’m supposed to do?”
I like kids. I like sleeping in. I like my freedom. I am grateful that I have (and have had) a choice in the matter.
Perhaps my purpose is to argue with casual encounters who don’t get it. Perhaps not?
Either way, rock it don’t stop it, Aniston.
