Oprah Winfrey

"I could not... have had this life and lived it with the level of intensity that is required to do this show the way it's done. I'd be one of those people that the kid's coming and saying, 'Mom, you've neglected me.'... So I have no regrets about that. I have none ... not one regret about not having children because I believe that ... it is the way it's supposed to be."

"Eu não conseguiria... ter tido esta vida e a vivido com o nível de intensidade que é necessário para fazer este programa da maneira que ele deve ser feito. Eu seria uma dessas pessoas com filhos que chegam e dizem: 'Mão, você me negligenciou...'. Por isso eu não tenho arrependimentos quanto a isso. Nenhum mesmo... não me arrependo de não ter tido filhos porque eu acredito que... aconteceu do jeito que era pra ser."

  1. It is one of those things that is absolutely taboo for women to say!! And I'm so glad she did! There are many of us who feel the same way. Motherhood is no bigger or more powerful a biological instinct than the urge to kill. So do we kill because of that? No!

    1. Dear Rita, so am I. I am happy for her continuous courage, which seems to be something that all of us, childless and childfree women, have to show on a daily basis. Because, in the eyes of the society, it is not enough choosing after much thought and talks to our deep inner selves, not to be a mother. We have to spend the rest of our lives justifying it. And Oprah does it beautifully. Never once I felt she was feeling sorry for herself or somehow apologizing for her choice. And this is a big step − something to learn from and to be put in practice more and more. Thank you for passing by - It is so good to have you here.
