I always wonder how people would react to me saying “Noah and I have been trying for 7 years for a baby and sadly that hasn’t worked out” when someone asks why we don’t have kids or ask if we want kids or say “you wouldn’t understand you don’t have kids”.
I am talking about someone we may know but not overly well. Not a total stranger of course but maybe a friend that you haven’t seen in years, a friend of a friend or a friend of a family member.
I am the type of person that may just laugh lightly or say something generic in response. I know that people don’t realize their innocent question/comment may be hurtful or may not be appropriate
Sorry for the rambly post but I have been thinking about this lately as more people bring it up.
