Nothing puzzles or infuriates me more than children being mistreated. It’s unfair, traumatizing, and hurtful. Once two people make the decision to lay down unprotected there’s a possibility of pregnancy, along with other things you can’t get rid of. If you don’t trust someone to be a parent, don’t lay down with them. After all, you are trusting them to possibly change your life forever, either way it goes.
It’s unjust to a child for one parent to decide they do not want this child. Irresponsible to say the least. The child that didn’t ask to be here, is affected, in a great way. How can you live with yourself knowing you have a child in this world and you haven’t done everything in your power to raise, nurture, protect, and care for him/her? Some people are so fucking selfish. Every decision a parent makes, affects the child, whether you want it to or not.
I often ask myself which would feel better; having dead parents or absent ones? They both leave a child with unanswered questions. Then this child grows up detached with mommy/daddy issues…and the cycle continues. I just pray the day I become a parent I can use every fault and error i’ve witnessed, to make better decisions. Maybe I just don’t understand this because I’m not a parent, who knows…
It is easier to build strong children than to repair broken men. -Fredrick Douglas
