Fabulous, more people should be surrounded by people like me who think that having a child young is irresponsible and immature because you don't have the life experience or the finacial capacity to support it adequately.
I would if I may, like to take back the word 'hate', it's sometimes hard to not hate the haters, but if I do I am one hey.
It makes me so sad, to think how many people you've discouraged, made feel like they were inadequate. I know you're only doing it because some one made you feel that way. But break the chain, spread courage, not fear, hope, not discouragement, confidence & assurance instead of uncertainty & apprehension & you'll find yourself surrounded by people who say go for it when you want to take a huge leap. Cuz let's face it, walking a tight rope is hard enough, doing it with 50 people telling you it's impossible & getting in your way, is a whole lot harder than doing it with some one holding your hand.
Everyone has their whole life's experience, & 40 years of it is as likely as 12 to produce a loving parent. "Financial capacity" is an illusion, yeah I wish I could buy each of my kids a Lamborghini. In the end though it doesn't matter how poor or rich the person is, the baby has an equal chance of growing up happy. Again, because of people like you, some one out there is feeling ashamed to be poor. To be a single father, or mother working a minimum wage job barely making ends meet.
As I said, I regret saying hate, & do indeed wish you success in life. I hope your world isn't forever filled with fear, & anger. I hope you smile today, find love, peace & happiness.
