Single woman responds to people who criticized her for enjoying her life without a partner and kids

The woman wondered why her spending Saturdays cooking and watching TV warranted such backlash from people who had no business commenting on her life.

It's 2023 and it's hard to understand why anyone would have a problem with a woman enjoying her life without a husband or children. Sure, having a family can be a beautiful thing, but why is it hard to believe that being single has its own beautiful set of liberties and joy that comes with it? TikTok user Julia Mazur - who goes by the username @pmdpod on the platform - posted a video about "what your Saturday morning looks like when you're single at 29 and you don't have a kid running around the house." She spoke about how she woke after 10 a.m., having witnessed Beyoncé's "Renaissance Tour" the night before and planned on relaxing the rest of the day watching shows like "Real Housewives of New York."

She even decided to make the Middle Eastern egg dish shakshouka after seeing a picture of it while scrolling on the internet. What she's trying to say is that whenever she feels down about not living up to society's usual standards for women, she remembers the little joys in her current life, like the low-key Saturdays where she can just focus on herself. "The effortless ease of my life... really pays off when I'm hard on myself for not being where society tells me I should be," she shared in the video.

Her video lets other single, child-free people feel less alone in the world. @codyceynar commented, "29 and single with no kids as well. Doing what I want whenever I want is just freedom." @mostlyghostlyx said, "34 and single with no kids and I spent the entire day reading at a beach club in Tulum with my 2 dogs." @carolyn.jane44 added, "I have a kid and I can't imagine hating on this. This is exactly what I would be doing if I could and am happy you get to!!"



 

But some people got extremely triggered by Mazur's post, especially far-right comment posters and self-proclaimed "theocratic fascist" Matt Walsh, who tweeted, "Her life doesn’t revolve around her family and kids, so instead it revolves around TV shows and pop stars. Worst of all, she's too stupid to realize how depressing this is." Mazur later revealed that she received tons of harassment from Walsh's legion of followers, but she is unfazed by the criticism. Although shocked at the vicious backlash and threatening comments, she is determined to keep going. Mazur believes the internet has a place for all kinds of content. Mazur affirmed that she is creating videos for people who make choices for themselves and don't necessarily follow what society expects of them.



 

"I make content for people who are feeling anxious in life because they haven't met their person yet or started a family, and aren't rushing and settling to meet someone because some internet troll told them they're gonna die alone," she said in a follow-up video, which she later deleted. She also noted that 40-50 percent of marriages end in divorce, so it's essential to figure out who you are as a person first and then find someone to share your life with. The single woman ended her video by reminding people, "Life's too short to be figuring out what Matt Walsh wants us to do or what some internet troll behind their keyboard is saying."
