When I was nine years old, I told my mother I was terrified because I didn’t want to be a woman since women had to have babies and I didn’t want to be a man because men had to go to war.
What a waste of anxiety! By the time I grew up there was no compulsory draft and all women weren’t expected to have babies.
(By the way, regarding the pain of childbirth. I didn’t know that the ninth month of pregnancy would completely embolden a person to go through anything to get the baby out!)
It’s a waste of time worrying about anything ahead of time.
When courage or strength are needed, we can ask for it…and we will have it…just in time.
