Ending My Relationship

I think I will start the process tonight. I have known for almost a month I do not want kids. I love her but we cannot be together. Ever since I realized I do not want children, I have rediscovered myself and I began to realize I love myself more than her. I feel reborn in freedom. I want to be explicitly selfish.  I want to focus on me and recylce energy into my life. I want the best for her but our time is done.

Wow, are you sure you're not just scared of something called responsibility? I mean that does come along when having kids.

I completely disagree. I'm not saying I should aggressively pursue selfishness to the point of hurting others. I am proposing I need to do what makes me happy. I have spent so much of my life doing what I thought I was supposed to do, doing what was expected of me; and in all that time, I never asked myself what I wanted to do.

Selfishness never leads to happiness.
