I truly am sorry for your own fertility and health concerns and think it's wonderful that you would be prepared to open to your home and heart to children other women carried, biologically. And I wish more people were like you. Many more. But realities are not so simple for everyone.
This is a difficult subject for me to decide on, truth be told. For me, personally, it would be difficult if not impossible for me to consider abortion as a choice. But I still don't think the state has the right to police women's bodies ... especially since it does fuck all to help them or the kids it forces them to carry.

I know I owe a lot of people on here responses and will give them in a bit when I am on my computer. It takes way to much time and energy to do it on a cellphone when I am around people (damn my extrovert self)

But the women/girls I was addressing, were specifically those who have a choice to abort an unborn child or allow another woman to raise him/her in a loving environment, and ultimately choose the former. Maybe there's something wrong with me, that I fail to understand why... I'm not telling them not to abort, but to at least think about it.

For me, the burden of guilt of abortion would be far greater than the burden of giving up a newborn to a loving family, but everyone is not built that way. But it's so hard to know what to do when dealing with an unplanned pregnancy and especially when you feel trapped and like everything is against you, who knows what thoughts and compulsions are running through people's heads? It tough to resolve, for sure.

Hmm... I've been thinking for a long time about opening a school for orphans and other less-privileged children. It may take years to implement, but I want to give such children an equal opportunity to shine like the stars they are in this world.

Since I was different, people used to marginalize me.
IFor years I thought that nobody liked me, and indeed nobody liked me. I had 0% self confidence. Always. But when I painted. Art is the only thing that kept me socially alive, and that made me go from invisible from the middle of the attention. When I painted everybody liked me for some reason.
Thats why in art school I thought I was an extrovert for a while. Then I realized that was just because I was comfortable in my environment.
We (Introverts) are just aliens that were forced to be born in this planet, and we don't feel like we belong here and this isn't our people, so we rather close up in our alien shelves.
Hahah sorry. It's 5 in the morning. I lost my mind.

I will not let this Friday night bother me, for at this point every moment of my life is as big a disappointment as any typical Friday night. Especially when I've just woken up, how dearly I would love to not ever have to get up, to just lie and fade away. But of course my daily ambitions keep me going, hopeless and ridiculous really.

When did I lose it?
But then I probably never had it. The world is filled with electric bullshit and I'm one of the worst propagators.
There is almost too much, too much for an undefined attention to anchor itself to. To concentrate on one aspect and a dozen more appear; C'est la vie. But why do we surrender to that because of c'est la vie? Just because now is c'est la vie doesn't mean it will always be c'est la vie.
