Today at work we were talking about coworkers due date, and then someone mentioned that I had 4 kids.
Another wonderful coworker of mine, we will call her Wanda the Witch, said “How did you do that?”
I was kinda stunned and not sure how to answer the question. Then that same coworker asked the ages of my kids. I told her their ages and pointed out the fact that they were all 2 years apart. I mentioned the fact that people usually judge me when they found out I have 4 kids, and mainly they assume that I was a teen mom because I look so young. Wanda the Witch then said “Close enough, you might as well have been a teen mom”.
That’s ridiculous! Who says stuff like that, and more importantly why can’t I just be proud of the wonderful mother that I am regardless of my age?
This wasn’t the first time that I have been judge like this, and I guarantee that it won’t be the last.
Kids, if I teach you nothing else, please, please do not judge someone until you have lived in their shoes. Try to understand where people are coming from and what may have or have not motivated them.
Various media outlets claim to be fair and accurate, but in reality no one can ever be 100% fair or accurate.
Life is more than just a series of facts. There are tons of factors that come into play.
