A Mind of Your Own

Lateefah Fatunbi

Have you ever thought about if you actually wanted to get married and have children? Or is it society’s expectations just in the air?
The idea that you can only be relevant or important if you have children is wrong. Your contributions to society should never be determined by your decision to have children or not, male or female.
Parenting is not easy. You have to love, groom, appreciate, nurture and take pride in your child. I think it’s unfair to have children if you aren’t intensional about the decision.
The Bible and the Quran says to examine your motives. Check your intentions. Think deeply and critically about all your life decisions.
