Folks, this year is kicking my ass. I'm just not feeling settled with anything. It's unsettling to feel this way. *sigh*
I'm not sure as to how best articulate this, but I'm becoming more and more frustrated with how having a child is regarded as the crowing achievement of a woman's life. Seriously?! Give me kudos for it when my kid is older and a decent person, but to tell me that when I'm feeling ugh about my lack of achievement is not good. Do we tell men who talk about their lack of achievement that it's okay because they have a child? No! So why is it okay to tell women this?
