Being nurturing doesn’t mean I must have kids

One big reason people say I should have kids is that I’m nurturing. And it’s true. I like to take care of people and animals. If am also very organized (which is a great trait for moms) and can lead people well. But, I find it disrespectful and odd that people would say, “Well, the best thing you can do with those traits is to have kids.” So, because I am giving and nurturing, I should make a baby who will literally drain me of every last drop of care and energy I have to give? Can’t I save that for myself? Or something else?
