Not everyone needs babies...

I understand that you love your children, and believe they are the "greatest gift anyone can receive". Good for you. I hope you have a healthy and easy pregnancy, and a healthy child to add to your growing family.

But can you PLEASE stop suggesting I get pregnant too? You have been my friend for several years, and although I have told you multiple times that I do not want children, you keep suggesting I will change my mind.

I love your kids, I will be there for them, and if God forbid something happens, I will be the first person to step up to take care of them for you, but I DO NOT WANT MY OWN!

Why is this so hard for people to understand? Why is there something wrong with ME just because I don't want children? Why does everyone think I will change my mind?

Between the insanity of our society, the ongoing world crises, the worry that I will parent the way my parents did, and the fact that I want to live my own life unhampered by the responsibility of trying to raise a decent human being, I'm not interested in being a mother.

Can you just respect that this decision did not come lightly and just leave me ALONE about it already!?
