I think the world is a beautiful place. It's autumn here and it's like the town is painted every shade of red and gold. I'm often surprised by the kindness and consideration shown to me by others. I hear of other people saying how bad the world has become, how crazy teenagers are, how hard times are now but to be honest I think these are things that people just say about new things and new events and new ways of doing things. Teenagers have always been distant and unpredictable. I know my parents were like that, and likely their parents before them. We've lived through far worse times and I think we'll all be okay in the end. While I'm not wealthy, I'm happy and I like my life. I'd be proud to share this world with a child.
Although a baby turns into a child, and then a teenager and then an adult and through all those stages you have to be a parent. It's not something that stops one day. It's a commitment for the rest of your life. Even if you get divorced, lose your job etc, you're still a parent. I know I am not quite ready to make the commitment yet, but I hope someday I will be.
If you're questioning your decision then maybe you're not ready at all.
