Is having children selfish?


Today I will be writing about quite controversial/unpopular opinion topic, which is having children. Personally, I do not want to have them, and this statement mostly startles the people who are asking me.

Usually, people ask themselves whether is NOT having children selfish. The fact that I do not want to have children does not mean I do not want to become a parent one day. For someone, it might seem the same, but for me, it is not.
There are 7 billion of people in the world, and this number is increasing, and is beyond the capacity of this planet, by the way. And that means, among other things, hunger and a lot of people without homes. Indeed, this is one of the reasons because I do not want to contribute to this global issue.

The second reason is related to the previous one. There are a lot of children without families, so if I ever decide to become a parent, I will adopt a child. And yes, besides biological reasons, these are a few of my main arguments. I am not saying that having children is particularly selfish, but from this point of view, it is.
I am certainly not telling that other people should follow my example. It is just my personal decision, and arguments I find appropriate.

xoxo, S. V.
