In a bold confession on X, a South African woman named @Khvnyi stirred up a storm of opinions with her statement about hating being a mother.
The woman expressed her deep regret over becoming a mother, saying she could never be convinced that it’s worthwhile.
“Being a mother. It’s one of my biggest regrets and nobody can convince me that it’s worth it. Ever.”
This confession drew mixed reactions online, touching on the different views on motherhood. The conversation took another turn when another X user asked her if she considered adoption. She wrote:
“Yho That time that kid is permanent. Have you thought of giving them up for adoption maybe?”
Khvnyi clarified that while she doesn’t hate her kids, she despises the role of being a mom, but wouldn’t think of giving her children up.
“Being a mother is very overwhelming. I hate it and if I could turn back the hands of time, I wouldn’t have been a mother. It doesn’t mean I hate my child.”

Two X users, Onyiaprudence and QueenJayhee expressed their dismay over her statement. She remarked on the choice of being a mother and worried about the impact on Khvnyi’s children when they grew up and saw what their mother tweeted.
Queenjayhee also, spoke on the joy in motherhood, as she couldn’t grasp Khvnyi’s feelings, which was hating motherhood.
In contrast, other users Nenyenwa and Icequeen showed understanding. They empathized with Khvnyi, confirming the tough nature of motherhood.
They urged people not to judge Khvnyi unless they’ve walked in her shoes, acknowledging the challenges, especially with active children.
Vinawills, another user, echoed her sentiment, stressing that it’s possible to love one’s kids but struggle with the role of a parent.
