If I Have Children…

I cannot express enough how truly willing I would be to let them be their own person.

I don’t want to shove gender stereotypes down their throats.

I don’t want to tell them what to wear or play with.

I want to create an open mind set in my family.

I want them to understand that they are their own individual and I will support them wholeheartedly.

If my son wanted to wear dresses and makeup, I would let him.
If my son wanted to play football and video games, I would let him.

If my daughter wants to wear pants and cut her hair short, I would let her.
If my daughter wants to wear pink and play with barbie dolls, I would let her.

"But what will you do if they get made fun of?"

I would explain to them the kind of world we live in and that some people will not be happy, but that this is their life and their happiness is most important.

" Happiness in intelligent people is the rarest thing I know. "
Crack me open, pour me out
" Do you know what your problem is? You can’t live with the idea that someone might leave. "
" When you meet someone who tries their hardest to stick by you regardless of how difficult you are, keep them. Keep them at all costs because finding someone who cares enough to look past your flaws isn’t something that happens every day. "
