What would your life look like without children?
I'm sure 99% of parents would say that they wouldn't change a thing... But what do you honestly think your life would look like if you did not have children. I know I would have traveled more, would not have as much debt and would be living in a more urban area? How about you?
I'd probably have a lot less achievements. Having children meant I found topics I was passionate about (including doing a doula course next year, and quitting my job to write full time). If I didn't have children I'd probably not have learnt how to set goals and go after what I want in life - I'd be out partying and working a boring retail job!
Before I found out I was pregnant for the first time, my life was a wreck!
It was only learning that I was responsible for someone other than myself that pulled me up out of the darkness.
Honestly, I would probably be dead by now without my children. I wouldn't have had the ambition to become who I am today without them.
I made hideous, dangerous choices before. I was completely unstable & headed down a path of destruction.
My children are my blessings & I am thankful each day for them.
We traveled with our kids to New Zealand , In Australia as well as Britain + Europe . It was done on a budget however I loved traveling with them and wouldn't change it for anything .The memories we have are amazing !
We might have had more money but what a sad lonely life without our 3 beautiful daughters.
My 18-year-old daughter went off to college and now I have to fill up my schedule with activities not related to her. Although she left me her cat and I give him a bath every day, which he totally hates. It took me a week to clean her room, so now I don't have that to do. I'm going to go see her this weekend, and maybe I'll clean her dorm room.
Oh yeah, living in a more urban area. I'm going to do that soon. I live in a little town with no traffic lights. The most exciting thing to do in this town is walk to the Post Office.
That's a good question and mother a 5 of children I've often asked myself that same question. sure I would probably would be a different person than I am to do and doing something completely different. But would I be happier? No Do I wish I could have done some things differently before I started having my children? Of course but I dont regret or wouldnt change having them. I think my life without my children would be very dull and boring and not happy.
Wow! This is a really tough question to answer. It's hard to imagine after 23 years of being a mom and many more years than that of wanting to be a mom. I'd like to say that my life would have been empty and boring but I believe it would have just been different. Very different.
My daughter taught me the greatest lessons in life. It sound corny, but she did. I realized what it meant to be truly unselfish, to have a passion for life you've never had before and what it takes to be a role-model 24 hours a day.
My life would be super dull without my kids. But I think I might have pursued my writing career a little more. I have great part-time gig, but I think it would have been full time with lots of clients. And I would probably have at least one novel published by now.
My life would be a lot less relaxed, a lot less loving and lonely. My children allow me so much fun and relaxing time with them, and give me so much love. I did travelling and other adventures on my own before starting a family. My life is much more complete now.
