Infertility has taught me that I do not have control of everything in my life. I have been a spoiled “princess” my entire life (no seriously, ask my mom). I have basically gotten everything I have ever wanted from the time I was born until now. Not only have I always gotten what I wanted, I also got it WHEN I wanted it (Occasionally my parents would make me wait until my birthday or Christmas to get more expensive items). When I wanted to buy a house, we bought a house. When I wanted a new car, I got a new car. When I wanted to go on vacation to Jamaica, we went on vacation to Jamaica.

Infertility taught me quickly that things aren’t always up to me. I don’t get to say if or when I will have a child. The decision is not up to my mom, my brother, my husband, or any of the other people I have always been able to persuade into letting me get my way.

“You cannot control what happens to you, but you can control your attitude toward what happens to you.”-Brian Tracy

    That is sooo true! I think that’s the hardest part for me. Seeing that I’m not in control with this AT ALL!

    This is completely true for me as well! I never thought about it this way though.
