AD1: super scared too but I can’t take it anymore. I cannot sacrifice my days doing something I don’t believe in, something that doesn’t motivate me, something that causes incessant stress and anxiety. Time for a change!

I, a childless woman who does not plan to have kids, am jealous of the parental leave parents get to take from work from choosing to have a child (a big life event). I 100% understand that they are working in a different way by taking care of the baby and being deliriously worn out in the process, but it makes me sort of jealous that unless I have a kid there is no life event that I can take ~3 months away from work to focus on and enjoy, plus have my hours prorated and a job to come back to.
