I have a unique situation and need some advice.
I am SAHM to 2 boys and pretty crunchy by most accounts. I love to spend time with my mommy friends and their kids. Problem is, of late, I think that some of my opinions are getting in the way of friendships. I admit that I need to watch my brain to mouth (or hands on FB) filter, but I really never intended to offend anyone. I realize that some of the subjects are taboo and I really just want everyone to feel they have open communication about them.
I feel like I am finally realizing the big picture in my own life as a woman and a parent, and just want people to know it is okay to go against the "status quo" and do what they feel is right in their heart.
I am an active intactivist and lactivist, as well as a promoter of benefits of natural birth and avoiding unneccesarean. I have seen women get the shaft by the birthing system, and it really makes me sad. I have had a few call me out on it, saying their feelings were hurt by me stating my opinions, never directed at them, mind you. I guess I can see their POV, but it is hard for me to walk the line between staying true to myself and not making people mad.
Anyone else have this issue?
