Sacrifices come in different forms and media mogul, Oprah Winfrey who undeniably has a super-successful career chose not to have children as a personal sacrifice.
In a recent interview with the Hollywood Reporter an entertainment magazine, Winfrey revealed she never regretted her choice while opening up about her decision to forego having children.
She told the magazine: “If I had kids, my kids would hate me, They would have ended up on the equivalent of the Oprah show talking about me; because something [in my life] would have had to suffer and it would’ve probably been them.”
Winfrey admitted she never found parenting appealing adding that she always had a different dream as a little than her peers.
“Gayle [King, Winfrey’s best friend and now a mother of two] was the kind of kid who, in seventh grade Home Ec class, was writing down her name and the names of her children,” she recalled. “While she was having those kind of daydreams, I was having daydreams about how I could be Martin Luther King.”
