I can’t help to notice that I am not like most people. I usually will go against the tide in almost all normal life situation. When we were newly married, friends and family seem to be wondering when we are going to have baby. I told them that I don’t intend to have one, and most of them were not happy to hear that.
Well, what is wrong with not wanting to have any child? It’s the same like people who want to have 4-5 kids yet they don’t really can afford to have that many. It’s a big life responsibility which need a mature mind and heart to handle. And I can’t help to notice that whenever people heard that it took us 5 years to have a child, they immediately think that we had to go a great trouble to conceive one. Or the remarks that most people said, about us being newly married since our son is only a toddler..haha!
And now whenever I told people who ever ask about us having another child about my intention of not having any other, I just can’t help to notice that most are shocked to hear that I am happy to just have one. Well, what is wrong with having one child? At times I have to sugar coat my words and say well, maybe in years to come I might consider to have another one just to clear up the air.
God!! Sometimes I just hate being me, sometimes I wish I can be like the majority of the people in this world who just go with the tide, follow the norms. The good side of having a child for me at the moment is that I no longer get the funny look when people heard that I have a degree but didn’t work full time like most educated career women these days do..sigh!
