The ones who haven’t gone through motherhood can only guess what it is to carry a child inside of you for nine months and then trying to keep it alive. This last one may be a weird sentence to hear, but if you think of all the terrible people that become parents, keeping a child alive is the number one priority. The thing is that when you see a pregnant lady and say ‘oh, that’s nice’, she says ‘crap, I have to go pee again’. That’s one harsh reality that you will never understand if you don’t go through it.
