does having a baby make you feel better?Watch this thread
If you're feeling nurturing something may help, try a houseplant
im glad I don't want children to be honest, and i'm not even into guys anyway. I'd rather stay without children and be financially stable first, but I don't even want kids anyway. You should never want kids to feel better, that's not a great reason for doing so.
Not ruined but they definitely haven't made their lives any easier. Unless you have family or a partner to help, it's a lot of sleepless nights. All the while, a lot of other 16-18 year olds who will be doing very teenage things like drinking and hanging with friends etc.
You need to find a way to identify and deal with the root cause of your issues.
Maybe a step forward could be counselling.
