Torschlusspanik

Tuesday, April 10, 2012

Torschlusspanik is the horror of being left out. It also refers to “the growing panic of a childless woman as she approaches middle age, knowing that she must soon get pregnant or lose the opportunity to conceive.” (Wikipedia) 

Most of my peers are well into their family lives, and I, well in the middle of my fourth decade in life, can scarcely say that I feel the need to join the race against the biological clock. Shouldn’t I be suffering from childlessness induced torschlusspanik by now? The feeling simply feels foreign to irredeemable souls like me.

We weren't all created to have kids.

People our age are having two to three kids now, but it doesn't bother me anymore. It used to scare me when I check Facebook and all I see are baby pics. Our paths go into different directions and what matters are the choices that makes us happy.

@Kayni: i don't see baby pictures on FB anymore. what i see are pictures of their kids graduating from kinder and elementary. :)
