Here she betrays her problem:
"Generally speaking, people who have children have them for the wrong reasons," she says. "They have them because they're afraid of being alone, and they want to grasp a tiny bit of immortality."She has projected her own mistake -- having children to escape a feeling of loneliness -- onto the world. From earlier in the article:
She is painfully honest, as perhaps only a psychiatrist can be, about her own delusions of motherhood. She had been an only child and had hoped that having children would end her feelings of loneliness. She realized too late, she says, that it simply created new forms of loneliness.
And so, this poor, unhappy woman is trying to justify her own shortcomings by telling the world that her children were a mistake. She thinks she is being hip and funny, but all she's really accomplished is for me to feel pity. Especially for her children. I'm sure she'd find me hopelessly archaic for doing it, but I'll be praying for her.
