    I don't understand why people get

    so offended when they find out I don't want children. And then they tell me I'm selfish. Yes ***** I am. Don't pretend like parents are completely selfless creatures because if you honestly believe that, you are in for one rude awakening.

    I'm not an incubator.

    I can live my life the way I want to. :D and that's by traveling, buying cool stuff, having a lot of pets, an amazing career I won't have to put on hold for a kid and sleeping in!

    If I hear another person tell me I'll change my

    mind, I'm going to kick them. I have wanted kids for the last 10 years and I won't want them for the next 10.

    I feel like people don't have children

    because they have a burning passion for them. It seems like they have them just because they think that's what they're supposed to do.

    I can never have kids.

    I'll screw them up. Like my parents did to me. I can't have someone's life in my hands. I can barely handle my own. I can never have children.

    Being in a Christian university they're a

    strong advocate for reproduction and family. Sometimes it makes me feel weak. Makes me feel like I have to have kids. Like I'm not good enough if I don't want to reproduce. It's overwhelming a but depressing actually.

    for not wanting kids. There is nothing wrong with not wanting to have them. They suck you dry emotionally, financially, mentally, and physically. You want to have 80 kids? Cool. But don't judge me because I don't want to waste my time with them. You think the sun shines out of...
