After four years of trying to have a baby, I have learned that some people just don't understand. I honestly don't think people "try" to be hurtful with the words they say, I just think they haven't experienced the pain, frustration, anxiety, and helplessness that comes along with infertility, so they don't realize how damaging their comments can be.
Nonetheless, it still hurts when you hear things like...
"So what are you guys waiting on??? You should get pregnant now."
"I will be MORE than happy to carry a baby for you. Just tell me when you're ready."
"I'll be so glad when you guys finally have kids. I can't wait for our kids to play together, go to school together, and grow up together."
I've gotten really good at biting my tongue when I hear things like the comments listed above...because again, I think these comments were said to try and help me, not hurt me. I am a fast learner, but learning how to not be so sensitive is taking me awhile :)
Until our prayers are answered, I'm going to continue believing that what doesn't kill you, makes you stronger. Which definitely makes me ONE STRONG WOMAN!!!
