Great piece Kristen and excellently put. I think the bingo that triggers me the most is the “You WILL change your mind” I feel it’s almost smug and the person believes they know you better than you know yourself. If they say “You MAY change your mind” or even “Do you think you will change your mind” that is different. It’s not just semantics.

Many people do change their mind and that’s ok. It’s their mind. But I personally will never change my mind. And not out of stubbornness. I simply do not want to be a Mum!

Thank you for raising up the voice of the childfree 😀
