Wholeness. That’s it. That is why I run my groups for women over 40 without children. I lead those groups as a pathway for women to see themselves as complete and whole.
Complete whether or not they have children. Complete whether or not they have partners. Complete whether or not they have jobs, friends, a house, a degree, whatever it is by which we judge our wholeness.
The 7th group for women over 40 with out children started yesterday, on the Martin Luther King Holiday. A couple of the women mentioned the freedom they have in their lives because they don’t have children. They gave thanks for the freedom they have as women, freedom our foremothers didn’t have.
To see ourselves as whole, regardless of our external or internal circumstances is freedom–perhaps the greatest freedom we can have.
