I have been struggling with trying to get myself to want to have kids for a while now. I see women when their cute little girls and envy them. Their the ultimate picture of adorable. However, when it comes to having kids, I don’t want too at this point. I’m not really sure why either. I am 26 years old and as of a few months ago, had a husband who wanted to have a baby. All I would have had to do was say it. Maybe I am selfish. The majority of my life I have struggled with being really over weight. Some people may call the idea of not having kids due to body image ridiculous. However, I don’t care. I really just want to get my body in shape & fall in love with myself. The idea of sacrificing my body, time, and future for a child feels a bit like lying on a bed of nails. I salute every mom who willingly has made changes in their life so that they can raise their child. I just don’t feel like that woman is me though. Maybe something will change my mind in the future but if not, I need to come to terms with the idea that this is OK. What the “majority” of people are doing is not always right for everyone. I’m finding more and more that I am the exception as opposed to the rule.
