Everyone Is Not You

Overall I just wish people would stop feeling the need to justify and defend basic lifestyle choices. Don't like being a single mom and wish you had some help? Fine! It's just weird to write elaborate and absurd lectures to others in order to justify that feeling.

But I'm sympathetic in that our society does elevate simple lifestyle choices - marriage, cohabitation, fertility - into moral ones, causing people to construct defenses of their own choices.
