Many things happen in our life that we aren’t expecting. Whether it be the loss of a loved one, losing a job, having to move or unexpectedly becoming pregnant. So what do you do during these challenging times and how do you make a difficult choice that can affect your life forever?
For instance when found with an unplanned pregnancy what’s the prime way to make a choice calmly that will be the best decision for your life?
Stop and take a deep breath so you can give yourself a chance to think clearly.
Make a pros and cons list.
Sometimes seeing things wrote out on paper can help ease your mind and help with the decision making process.
Do some research to look at your options.
You can keep the baby or even give the baby up for adoption. Talk with the baby’s father, if able. Does he plan on being a part of the baby’s life or not? Reach out to a counselor or a pregnancy helpline like Options For Pregnancy to talk with a professional about your thoughts and fears.
When considering your choices, imagine life after an abortion and do research on what women go through after having one. Make sure to inform yourself before making a rash decision.
Also remember that you don’t have to do what everyone is influencing you to do, this is your decision and yours alone. But know there are people out there willing to help you and that you don’t have to go through this alone.
