Having a child is a long term commitment to a heavy, heavy responsibility which demands energy, attention, and time.
To have a child is to bring an entire person into the world. This person can not consent to this. This person is inherently vulnerable, hardwired to depend on you, and must be taught the skills neccessary to one day care for themself.
When you have a child, that child's well being is entirely on you. It's your job to keep them safe, to keep them fed, cloathed, and happy. It's your job to make sure they feel loved.
When you choose to have a child, you are signing up to spend years and years of resources on that child. That is your choice. The child was not alive and could not agree to your decision to drag them out of the void of nonexistence. The child was not asked if they wanted to experience an entire lifetime of conciousness, and all of the potential suffering and agony that comes with that.
That decision is entirely that of the parent who has made the choice to have a child.
You are not "granting the gift of life." You are not doing this hypothetical child a favor by having them. You are doing this for you, because you wanted to be a parent. You wanted to have the experience of raising a child.
This means that if you have a child, you owe that child. You owe them time, and love, and safety, and care. You asked for this, it is now your responsibly to follow through.
Children are not a toy. They aren't a fancy new car for you to parade to your friends. They aren't a fashion accessory for you to put on the shelf when you lose interest. They aren't a mini you. They aren't a magic cure-all to your trauma, and they aren't there to fill some void in your chest.
They are a vulnerable person who is easily abused and neglected and who will be at your mercy throughout much of their development period.
A parent owes their child. Failing to follow through with the responsibility they signed up for is a failing on the parent's part. Making the child feel guilty for the crime of existing is the fault of the parent. A child is never a burden.
Abusive and neglectful parents are failures as parents. They could not do the bare basics of what the job entails and then they blame the child for a crime that the parents themselves committed.

Perhaps a child failed by their parents has their own failure ordained.

[ID: Pictures with white writing on purple backgrounds, first & last pictures are pink writing on purple backgrounds. Words in quotation marks are also pink.
Picture 1; ‘childhood trauma isn’t just the result of being abused. It can also be the result of…’
Picture 2; ‘Being left to “fend for yourself” when you needed safety and security’.
Picture 3; ‘Having your feelings invalidated and denied whenever your sought emotional support’.
Picture 4; ‘Being forced to “self sooth” alone and find escape from your painful reality (eg. Video games)’.
Picture 5; ‘Having to hide your true self because it wasn’t accepted by those you craved to be understood by’.
Picture 6; ‘Having your parents constantly prioritise themselves (or their work) over yourself’.
Picture 7; ‘Feeling like you have to compete/prove yourself to receive the love and attention you sought’.
Picture 8; ‘Please know you are worthy of love & compassion- don’t let your parents inability to give you this make you conclude otherwise’. /end ID]

This applies to anyone, but I really want to emphasize this to my fellow survivors who went through trauma as children and/or teenagers.
I’m so sorry you lost part, most or all of your childhood. Please give your inner child what you can. This includes comfort but it also includes doing the things you didn’t get to if you can.
Play the fun games. Buy the tasty treats. Go on adventures to the park and swing on the swings. Watch cute movies. Make crafts. Blow bubbles. Or any things like that! Embrace your inner child and let that inner child enjoy things they never got to or didn’t get to enough.
It’s not too childish or too late. You can’t get your childhood back but you can still help your inner child.

So children don't get traumatized because they get hurt.
Children get traumatized because they're alone with the hurt.

You don’t owe anyone anything. Stranger online says something you don’t like, block them. Stranger irl says something you don’t like, ignore them. A friend talks shit behind your back? Just cut them out of your life. You are more important than your relationships.

No child deserves to feel like their existence is a burden.
No child deserves to feel like they shouldn't exist.
No child deserves to hate themself.
No child deserves to live their life in fear of angering their parents.
No child deserves to live their life in fear of disappointing their parents.
Children deserve to be loved. They deserve to feel safe, cared for, and wanted. They deserve to enjoy their life.
It is never the child's fault when the parent fails to provide these things. It is the parents fault.
The child never asked to be born. It is the parent who wanted this, and therefore it is the parent's responsibility.

It is okay if all I did today was breathe. I am a human being, not a human doing.
