11 Things That a Mature Person Shouldn’t Make Excuses About

10 months ago

“Are you crazy or what? Having a baby at 40?” “You’re 35 and still don’t have your own place?” “What are you tired of? You don’t work in a coal mine!” — Many people have heard these and similar phrases directed at them and felt hurt. Some people, unfortunately, forget that everyone has the right to choose how they live, who they are, and what they do. And no one owes anyone an explanation for such things.

Comparing priorities or achievements is not a good idea. Everyone has their own path and pace in life.

A woman has the right to decide when to have a child and should not have to justify her choice, not even to doctors.

Women come in different shapes and sizes, and they are all beautiful. No one can judge them for how they look.

People have different tastes and preferences when it comes to food, and that’s okay. There is no need to criticize what someone else chooses to eat.

Parents deserve to have some rest and relaxation. And some people should mind their own business and not interfere with other people’s parenting styles.

Different families have different ways of managing their finances. Some people prefer to pay only for their own expenses, while others are happy to cover the costs for a large group.

The way a mother conceives a child does not affect her “value”. Her work is priceless in any case.

It is normal to have limitations or fears. What is worse is to blame others for them.

Adults should not have to apologize for having the skill to delegate tasks they do not enjoy doing themselves.

Mental work can be exhausting, too, and one shouldn’t underestimate it compared to physical labour.

There is no need to worry about the child’s development pace if the doctors say everything is normal. Every child is unique and grows at their own rate.

You cannot always escape from uncomfortable questions and debates, especially if your opinion differs from the majority. Someone will inevitably offer their two cents, give advice or criticize. The only thing you can do is stand up for yourself with dignity.
