I feel like I owe an explanation for not wanting children. That I have to tell people that I’m not some monster who hates all kids.
Becoming estranged was the best thing I ever did for myself. It was a journey to self-love and self-respect that I never expected.
I felt like a loser, but I tried to remind myself that I had made a smart financial decision.
Staying in an unhappy marriage does more damage to your kids than you realize… and I’m a living example.
