Does Having your own Child Complete You?
Months ago, I was talking to a friend and we were discussing kids. When people ask me if I have kids. I say to them. I have none but, would love to have a “little Elena” running around the house some day. In conversation, I told my friend, how could I pass through life without having a child? Would life be really worth living?
My friend didn’t see it my way and said life wasn’t all about kids but it was important that people were happy personally and most of all in good health. As usual, I smiled. It definitely wasn’t a conversation for debating. Deep inside, I guess like any other woman out there, I love kids and don’t think I will feel fulfilled in life without any. Several times, I have my friends 2 kids over on a Saturday (another friend). She loves her kids dearly, but in a funny way, It’s a relief for her, as she is a single parent and it’s a pleasure for me as I love having kids around. I say to her:
“I’ll bring them back early evening and we’ll call you about lunch time.”
She responds: “Elena, please keep them for as long as you want!”.
So, seriously – What is the importance of having kids? How happy are you that you had kids, if you have any? … and if you don’t have kids yet, do you feel your world is not complete?
Thanks for sharing your thoughts. ٩(•̃•̃)۶
