I wanted to start out by saying don't care if you experience judgement, but that's a little naive. We all care. No one likes to feel like other people are thinking negative things about them or worse, speaking those things out loud for even more people to hear. If you think about it, what gives breath to someone's need to think or feel criticism for subject matter that you read or I write? This isn't a morality analysis - it's a question to gauge the posture of one's heart. The need comes from hurt or an insecurity. I used to hate children. Full on hate. Seriously. I laugh about it now because oh my goodness was I hurting. It wasn't about children or some of the questionable parenting techniques which caused them to be obnoxious, it was about the childhood that I never really had. It was having to hear my mum tearfully tell me how when I was two years old and we were in public, I used to put my arms up at every male who walked past in hopes that they might pick me up and hold me. I could still cry thinking about it. How tragic is that? It makes understanding my old reactions to children a lot easier to swallow, doesn't it?
