No Children For Me; Let Me Live My Own LifeI am sick and tired of people telling me that I am still young and will change my mind about having children as I get older. I have already made up my mind. I do not want children. The worst part is how certain people tend to make fun of me exactly because of that. They can be downright cruel. I am not making fun of them for wanting to get married and having kids. It's like you are getting discriminated for not wanting to have children. I wish they would mind their own business and let me live my life the way I want.
I don't want to spend the rest of my life looking after child. I'm not very good with children, and I never have been. I can't stand them. The thought of having one growing inside of me rather disgusts me actually. I spent my entire childhood surroundered by children of all ages, (my mum's job included looking after eight to nine children every single day), so it's safe to say that I got my share of rude, bratty and noisy kids when I was younger.
I would like to travel and see the world. Visit all kinds of places and meet all kinds of different people. I want to study language, food, art and photography. There is simply not room for children (even if there were I wouldn't want them.)
So to those who might say I am selfish for not wanting any kids, it's just as selfish getting one for selfish reasons. Most people these days seems to have children for all the wrong reasons and because all their friends are getting one.
Children? No thanks, not me.
