Please don’t call me selfish

Your parents may call you selfish for not having kids. It’s a common accusation today, but it’s also very unfair. The idea behind the charge is that it’s selfish to live just for one’s self. But who is that harming when there is no kid in the picture? In fact, how can selfishness even come up when at the moment there is no child that exists in this scenario? It’s selfish to have kids if you won’t be a good parent. If you understand you can’t or don’t want to be a parent, there is nothing selfish about not having kids. In fact, it may be the most selfless thing.
