The first time I became pregnant I was only 19 years old and I didn't think too much about the different decisions I’d soon have to make and how people would judge me regardless of what I decided. At that point in my life I made my decisions based on what I knew. When I got married and got pregnant with my two daughters I was faced with those decisions all over again and this time I put much more thought into the decisions I made and I made the choices that that were right for me and my family at the time.
Over the years I noticed that many of the people judging others for making the “wrong choices” or the less popular choices were those that haven’t had children yet. I also noticed that when they did get pregnant and had children they quickly realized that many of the choices they thought they would make or hoped to make didn’t fit in with what life had in store for them. We need to stop worrying about the decisions others make and only worry about what is right for us. With that being said, we also need to stop being so hard on ourselves when the decisions we make our not exactly in alignment with the plan we originally had.
