Parenting, self-interest and some ugly choices!

When choosing to have children this implies taking up certain responsibilities

*

To remember

  • a lot of us in our generation seems to forego the essence of who we are as humans, as people and not just women => If trend continues => people it would hurt most = women themselves.
  • working + multitasking like a machine =  prerogative set by societal norms + the media =  oppressive as those expectations putting women in the kitchen and keeping their thighs tightly shut.
  • I mean what is any outcome really worth if it does not involve choice? It might be packaged differently but still remains devoid of any real progression.
  • women seem to wait till a cloud floats over their marital bliss, to decide to turn into a feminista.
  • all about grace + ladylike behaviour.
  • parenting risks something much bigger + continues to impact generations to come. A far more scary prospect, if you ask!
  • When deciding to become a parent > elements like ego + self-interest needs to automatically move lower on the priority list.
  • child you produce = you + your partner decided to bring them out.
  • child =/= your private property to do away with
  • child = lifelong commitment.
  • Selfish parents often procreate a far worse version of themselves while fighting custody battles over their egos.
  • tiny change in an adult’s life can impact a younger person’s impressionable phases in life, in fundamental ways.

I know what you’re all thinking about. Whether this is yet another piece about whether women can have it all. But in addressing the contention around that question, a lot of us in our generation seems to forego the essence of who we are as humans, as people and not just women. If that trend continues, I think the people it would hurt the most is, well of course – us. The women themselves.
