I’m not getting married: I’ve already done that once. A lot of people I know are getting married. I am happy for them.
I’m not having a baby: My boyfriend has 2 kids (fine with me, even better for my vag, it’s still intact.) A lot of people I know have kids or are having them. Happy for them.
I’m not buying a house: I don’t want to commit to one place and renting is just fine for me. I don’t want to be pressured into buying one or getting a lecture either.
Dogs: I have a cat. Maybe when I decide that’s not enough, I will get me a P
For all of the above, it’s just not for me. Other than the dogs. The day I got married I vowed not to have a child. Then I got divorced. Then I met a man that has 2 wonderful children that I’m not the Mom to. And I’m okay with that. Because I am free. I like being free. I also like hanging out with the kids too, ’cause they’re pretty wild and full of life.
I have a pretty good life, I do. No attachments other than having a relationship. No mortgage to pay. No baby butts to wipe. I can go out when I please, come when I please, do what I please.
That’s not to say that people with children can’t. They are just limited sometimes.
Kudos to the people that do it, and kudos that don’t. It’s just not the life for me. Do what makes you happy, because ultimately if you don’t, you’re not going to be happy. And life is about doing what makes you happy.
