Children are indeed a miracle and I tried for 5 long years before having mine.
However, now I worry about the planet he will inherit, what would happen to him if something happened to me, and whether or not I am doing a good job
of raising him.
I love him dearly and want what is best for him. I also would never have another child. Nine billion miracles are enough. We don't need to worry
about the human race dying out.
Also, it is the biggest responsibility you can possibly imagine. You want to know that absolute epitomy of failure? Mess up a kid. There is no
worse feeling in the world than loving your child and failing him/her. I have never felt a pain that compares to that. I have never felt sorrow so
big as that which comes from failing as a parent. You hold a person's entire life in your hands, one false move could break it.
You had better be really sure of yourself before you have a child. You need to be able to say with some degree of certainty that for the next 20
years you will remain stable, motivated, compassionate, of the best possible character, patient, fair, healthy, finanacially secure, etc.
If you really aren't sure, then love your kids enough to not have them.
