Career and Family vs. Baby Making Machine

woman pregnantYoung ladies (Real Talk)- You should have a career. There are too many opportunities for you to be successful. You can attend college online, go to trade school, get a job or start your own business. I had my son when I was 18 and my daughter at 21 but I promised myself that I would have a degree no matter what!!!! So, I obtained my first degree when I was 33 and my second one at 35. I never wanted to struggle or be poor. It is a mindset. I’ve been on public assistance and it was humiliating because they treat you like dirt and talk to you as if you are illiterate. Who wants to live like that? I told my caseworker that I am not here by choice but circumstances :my husband left me and I demand respect. After I graduated and got my first teaching position, I happily wrote them a letter stating that I no longer needed assistance. Take pride in who you are and better your situation. There is more to life than having babies!!! When you have them sweetheart, you have to take care of them. So, get off the sofa, go online and find a job, get your babies in subsidized day care, and feel good about yourself!!!

    I love this! Very inspiring. Young women need to start having more respect for themselves, taking more responsibility for themselves and their situations. Yes, things happen, but they can be overcome. Public assistance can be a lifesaver when someone really needs it. I think part of the reason people may have treated you like dirt is because so many people are lazy and abuse the system. Hardworking people resent that, so everyone using public assistance gets labeled as such.
