Don’t worry about your time to give birth.
Don’t worry about things such as: When should I give birth? People say I should give birth before I’m 35 years old, however I don’t even have a lover yet. I love working, so I don’t want to give birth now; or, I love my lover but I don’t want to give birth now; or I want to discover the world and myself, so I don’t want to give birth now… So what should I do? Should I have my children?…
Don’t worry about giving birth. We are born not to give birth. Although the whole world needs us to have children, we are not born to give birth. We are born to live our life as we want.
You know, the whole world needs our sisters to have children and Vietnam is one among the countries that need it most. Vietnam is always worrying about giving birth. So Vietnam always pressures all women to give birth. If you’re a woman, you must get married and give birth.
Firstly, why worry about the size of the population?
Vietnam’s population is already big now. However, the population’s quality is low. So why run after quantity without quality assurance?
The Kinh people should limit our childbirths and take care of our own quality at the best, and at the same time take care of the children of our ethnic minorities like our own children.
We should focus on the quality of the population, right?
Secondly, too many ethnic minority children don’t have enough to eat, wear and learn; if we take care of them, though we have low fertility rate, we would still have enough intellectuals for our country.
Thirdly, taking care of children who don’t have enough to eat, wear and learn means to take care Jesus, Buddha, Bodhisattva, God, Thiên Chúa, Ông Trời…
“Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world. For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’
“Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’
“The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’
You see, we can have our lover without giving birth. Although we don’t give birth, when we take care of children like our own children, we also are mothers.
Live the life you want.
Have a nice day.
