By Pauline Njoroge
Maybe the best thing to do was ignore this update. But I won’t. I am so sick and tired of being judged by people who don’t know me. People who have never met me, people who don’t know my story, my struggles and my tears.
So a grown up educated man woke up at 4am….. 4am to make assumptions and parade Pauline Njoroge as an example of empowered women who do not want to have a family? What does he know about my life to decide what I do not want ? Does he know if I have a spouse in the first place? or I have been trying to get a baby in vain or I am trying to work out a relationship so that the baby follows? Or if I am just in a place of prayer that these things work out in God’s plan? What does he know about me so that he may stand to judge and confidently analyze why I am yet to get a family or children?
Family and children come from God. And He does it in His appointment time….. our lives don’t take the same path where we all have families and children at a certain age. God has a different plan for each one of us and some things are simply beyond our control. There many be many reasons why a woman may not have a child yet; and she cannot go shouting and telling everyone what’s going on in her life so that the world understands her. It’s therefore so immature for a man who does not share a bed with that woman or plays a role in her life to understand her situation to go parade her as an example on Facebook.
Vincent K’Owuor, if you truly are concerned as to why I don’t have a child yet, please go have that conversation with God. You are not God and can’t just and assume you know why a woman has not gotten children, unless they women has told you the reason. Meanwhile if your post was intended to hurt, congratulations! You have succeeded! And Incase you were sincere about giving advice to women, you should have done it without generalizing or using a woman you barely know anything about as an example.
