4. YOU PRIORITIZE A HEALTHY LIFESTYLE
Speaking of work and speaking of balance. The crazy scheduling and resultant stress of modern life requires that we monitor and take care of our mind-body health and lifestyle.
Many potential parents see having a baby as a fix to their problems.
Just … no. While things may be tough, as adults it’s our responsibility to take care of any pressing issues before bringing a baby into the mix.
5. YOU’RE NOT AFRAID OF SELF-SACRIFICE
If you’re reading these words, you’re either (1) a positive person, or (2) someone trying to become more positive. Positivity is an admirable trait in a society that is so self-absorbed.
You are more likely to sacrifice themselves for someone else. Have you bought a strangers lunch before? Helped out an older adult? Lent money even when things were tight?
You get the idea. And if you’re a self-sacrificing type of person, odds are you’ll be a great parent.
