In today’s day and age, it’s not uncommon for people to choose to not have children. Unfortunately, people who choose to live child-free, particularly women, are met with criticism for their decision.

Her husband passed away 10 years prior and she’s now living in a “rest home” and has zero regrets about not having children.
She explains why she doesn’t regret choosing the childfree life in this letter to young people. Here’s what she had to say.
