However, In our society, it is hammered into our mind since we were born, that having kids is this beautiful thing that everyone has to go through. After all, it’s just an instinct. And you don’t understand yet.
Hence, so many people get pressured into having kids which they did not even want in the first place. Whether it be by their partner or their parents. So when one mother told the honest truth to her sister. ‘That she sometimes regrets having kids.’ Her sister looked at her like she was crazy.
So this mother did what anyone would do. Go on Reddit to ask the world if she really is a bad person for even thinking that.
