#1
 I Can Barely Take Care of Myself: Tales From a Happy Life Without Kids — Jen Kirkman
“Life is like a closet full of clothes—you can have it all, but it doesn’t mean that you should. I can wear four cardigan sweaters all at once with a pair of sweatpants over my jeans—but it doesn’t mean that I should.”


 


#2
All Joy and No Fun: The Paradox of Modern Parenthood — Jennifer Senior
“…as a fellow psychologist [said] when he finally got around to having a child: ‘They’re a huge source of joy, but they turn every other source of joy to shit.'”


 

 


#3
Selfish, Shallow, and Self-Absorbed: Sixteen Writers on the Decision Not to Have Kids — Meghan Daum
“Is it possible that I will regret not having had children when I am old and dying alone? People with children love to ask this of us childless types, the way evangelicals like to imagine your tearful deathbed repentance or belated contrition in Hell. Since I already regret every other thing I have ever done or failed to do, I don’t see why this decision should be exempt.”
