Not Every Girl Is Meant To Be A Mom, But That's Not A Bad Thing

Motherhood isn't for everyone.


I grew up with the stigma that you date the love of your life for a few years, get married (preferably in your early 20s), and have kids (also preferably in your 20s).

However, as I've grown up, I've learned that that isn't always the case. I know girls who got pregnant in their teens with baby daddies they aren't with anymore. I know young couples who dated for only a few months before getting engaged.

I'm pretty sure I got a wedding invite from a high school friend last summer, too. She's my age!

The other day my dad told me that one day, I'll get married. Then, I'll have kids and he'll be a granddad. First of all, what? Slow down there. I've barely survived college.

There's really no right or wrong way of - well - growing up. The same can be said for girls who don't care to be mothers someday.

I grew up wanting a wedding, and then not really caring about it. I'm not big on social gatherings. I also grew up wanting a family of my own someday. Now, I'm not too sure.

I love babies, but any older? No thank you. Also, not to be that girl but why would I want to bring a kid into this messed up world?

There's a number of reasons why I don't want kids. At least not right now or anytime soon. That doesn't make me a bad person either. And it's okay if you feel the same way as I do.

Not every girl was meant to be a mom. Motherhood isn't for everyone, so don't feel pressured to do something you don't want to do or aren't ready to do. There's no set guideline or rules for you to follow. You're in charge of you.

Leaving My Backpack In The Library

Views about society and the stranger sitting right across from me


As a college student, my backpack is an extension of myself in many ways. It contains my notes, pens, and computer vital for my success in college. It contains the snacks and water bottle I need to survive long days on campus. It also contains the "in-case" items that help put my mind at rest if I forgot something from home: extra hair ties, masks, and that backup-backup snack. With so much in my backpack important to me and my life on campus, it is no wonder that I can get apprehensive about it when it is not with me or in my line of sight. And that makes me wonder.

'Venom: Let There Be Carnage' Film Review

Tom Hardy and Woody Harrelson lead a tigher, more fun sequel to 2018's 'Venom'

When Sony announced that Venom would be getting a stand-alone movie, outside of the Tom Holland MCU Spider-Man films, and intended to start its own separate shared universe of films, the reactions were generally not that kind. Even if Tom Hardy was going to take on the role, why would you take Venom, so intrinsically connected to Spider-Man's comic book roots, and remove all of that for cheap action spectacle?

'The Addams Family 2' Film Review

The sequel to the 2019 reboot is an enjoyable, but unremarkable start to the Halloween movie season

There's a reason why the Addams Family have become icons of the American cartoon pantheon (although having one of the catchiest theme songs in television history doesn't hinder them).
