Bridget I agree with you, and I don’t think Irish Baby Jack Skellington and baby Grinch t-shirt was suggesting differently. She simply didn’t give herself the okay to set the boundaries previously.I’ve tried to teach those I mentor to be strong in this respect. You don’t need an outside reason to set boundaries. As living beings, we deserve that respect, period
And she said she didn’t feel like she could stick up for herself until she had a kid. Such a path should not be promoted as the way to self-worth. It’s a self-defeating narrative for our sisters in the world. U can get to self esteem and strength in the face of work pressures without having kids.
Must wear this Irish Baby Jack Skellington and baby Grinch t-shirt, ladies shirt, hoodie, sweater
Bridget Blackburn you are misplacing your anger. The Irish Baby Jack Skellington and baby Grinch t-shirt who do not allow you to have boundaries are your employers and it has nothing to do with the ‘breeders’ around you. It’s between you and your employer. If you spend the time looking on how society looks at the mothers, especially in the working place, you’ll find, very close to home, that they’re not so ‘accepted’ and embraced. Quite the contrary.
Your boundaries are valid but are personal. Don’t make it about another person.The OP has a right to her own experience and story, without this diminishing your rights and experience.It’s just totally different when you have children. It’s hard to explain but your whole focus shifts in a way you can’t comprehend pre-kids.
You can disagree but you can’t know until you know.Apparently, it does, every post about motherhood has to be hijacked, vociferously, by those who choose not to have kids, every single time. I also think her point is being mis-taken. it’s motherhood that woke her up to not being taken advantage of.not that all others should be. Everyone had different Irish Baby Jack Skellington and baby Grinch t-shirt that are eye openers.
I really like Irish Baby Jack Skellington and baby Grinch t-shirt, unisex shirt, longsleeve
Childfree is ok and fun when you are Irish Baby Jack Skellington and baby Grinch t-shirt and careless and self-preoccupied but it all passes by the age of forty when there much younger start to appear in your way, that’s when carelessness fades away and self-preoccupation has become annoying and fruitless. What’s next. Emptiness and loss of purpose of existence, afterwards permanent regret of not being able to replay-life cannot be rewinded.
That’s when your would-be growing up bright and cheerful kids’d show up and light your heart and give you that sense of being needed, of being important but they wouldn’t cause you thought childfree is ok and fun.I didn’t realise people gave such titles as ‘breeders’ and ‘non-breeders’ wouldn’t it be wonderful if women just supported women rather then compare and compete and worst of all, name call.
It’s unfortunate that people are taking issue with Bridget for the sake that she says she’s not planning children. She’s literally advocating for the attitude espoused by this interviewed woman to be universally held – that it should be the standard and, importantly, that you shouldn’t have to have kids to be able to enforce boundaries. Literally her point.
Some of the comments seem to thinly suggest women without kids have no excuse to bring that philosophy of refusing excess, or standing up for themselves, to work. Real supportive of your fellow woman, there.Daisy also a valid statement – it is generally easier to use a child as a reason at work. People without children don’t have that reason. That doesn’t mean having children in the workplace is easy at all, just that there are Irish Baby Jack Skellington and baby Grinch t-shirt and cons to each, and employers need to be mindful of both employees,. Editing your comment is silly btw.
