Kidsposted December 2nd, 2019 at 12:26 PM I used to want them, but I’ve had depression and anxiety for as long as I can remember. It’s difficult for me to take care of myself. I’ve realized this year that I may never be a fit parent, and have decided to let that dream go.

AwesomeDec 2, 2019 at 5:42pmGood on you for making the responsible choice. Wish more people did. Smart personDec 2, 2019 at 10:34pmI echo what Awesome wrote. It’s okayDec 2, 2019 at 11:23pmto not want kids of your own. I’m not interested in being a parent and have no regrets. These days parenting is a volunteer job that nobody has time for. Happy ParentDec 3, 2019 at 8:04amHi I had depression and issues from growing up in an abusive enviro. Did not want kids for the same reason but finally going for it helped me heal a lot of wounds. It took some counselling a lots of work on myself, but the thought of parenting made me push hard not to pass the old issues and to be a positive role model for the child. It has been a heling and empowering experience...hope u can find some help to look into your “emotional world” and look at parenting with fresh eyes. If u still dont want kids then- great. But maybe there’s more to it then you can see right now.
