“If it wasn’t about proving yourself to anyone at the end of the day what would you do? There’s so much one can let go when you don’t feel the need to prove yourself to anybody. It greatly impacts the decisions you make.”
Today I sit down with Shelley Pernot, published author, certified coach and founder of Babes without Babes in Austin. Babes without Babes is a meet up group for women who are childfree. Spending time with like-minded people with whom you don't have to justify your decision is huge when you are doing something different from the norm. You don’t realize you miss a community of people like you, for whatever it is for you, until you see it.
We talk about how the organization started out of anger and resentment, how it wasn’t until she recognized the complexity of the parent/ child dynamic that she boldly stated her choice of being childfree and how finding your purpose is really a crock of you know what.
