“…it was so validating to be reminded that I am not alone”

Christen, I wanted to take a moment to thank you for sharing your thoughts and experience on #ChildfreeChoice. This is something that I personally identify with and have known about myself for as long as I can remember. I have never been able to envision having children like the rest of my friends and I went a long time thinking there was something wrong with me simply because I didn’t see motherhood in my future. I have been judged, questioned, and disrespected by strangers as well as those closest to me. The words, “you’ll change your mind” or “you just haven’t met the right man yet” have haunted me and it was so validating to be reminded that I am not alone.
