Childlessness [Aug. 26th, 2016|04:00 pm]
[Tags|, , ]

Yesterday's post prompted me to start doing some research about childlessness stuff and trying to figure out what to do about it.

In terms of positive things, I've learned that there are lots of people who are in the same boat I'm in, which is always helpful, and I've identified certain support groups that exist. I can adjust to it in the way I've adjusted to a whole lot of other things in my life.

The national statistics are a bit sobering. 1 in 5 women are childless now and I've also seen that most become so due to circumstance not choice.

It's been interesting and helpful to read a lot about it as I seem to be making some headway into what's actually bothering me and what I can really do about it. It always helps to read stuff from other people's experiences and go "that's me" or "definitely not me".
