Childfree And No Religion- Double No NoMy parents have had little education and are very traditional and religious. They only talk of me fulfilling their life sc
I want to learn how to not be timid, to grow out of this social anxiety, to be more independent...to grow as a person and step away from these 4 walls which are suffocating me. My peers are all married, having children while they make me feel like an alien amongst them.
I want to save enough money to travel, to form a quality life on my own terms, to give to part of the millions of children already born who have no parents and no family. I don't need to have my own children, a mini me. A child doesn't have to have my features, my blood for me to love them. No one in my family has ever adopted or even just mentored other children...let alone question their religion. "Be fruitful and multiply" they think this is something mandatory, an obligation. Maybe when the world didn't hold 7 billion people!!
I know there is much more than this...there is just no way to reach out and grasp it without being shunned. :(
