    Mother nature 🙈🙈🙈🙈 the uterus wants a child but I don’t want to, so it will punish me 😡😡😡

    One of the things I don’t enjoy about being a woman is that we are almost expected to hide the fact we are on our periods. Why?! I am not ashamed of my body, or its functions. It’s a very natural thing, but for some reason it’s a really taboo subject. I hope the next generation doesn’t have to sneak around and pretend that nothing is going on when actually you feel like Niagara Falls for a week 🤣

    Honestly – why couldn’t we have just bled for 1 hour and gotten done with it? I get that nature wanted a way to tell us that we’re not pregers but seriously periods is so UNFAIR!

    Honestly I love being a woman but if I have to be born again I might prefer being a man. Life just seems more chill and safe for them. They can do as they like and get away. They can go on impromptu trips without caring about safety issues. Societal rules only apply to women and not them. Somehow – I am more inclined towards being a man!

    But I love that as a woman I have more feelings, emotions and have the freedom to show them. 🙂

      You never fail to make me laugh 😂😂😂
      I actually used to wish I was a man for similar reasons but it’s nice to have the option to work, the ability to follow my dreams, etc. there are pros and cons to everything I suppose 😉
      As for the 1 hour thing I agree with you 100%!!! Ugh 🤦🏾‍♀️

    I hate that when we voice our opinions or speak up for ourselves, we are labelled as angry, erratic and unhinged but men do the same and society claps, and calls them agreeable! It makes me sooo mad.

      Oh gosh yes!!! I get that all the time and most times I wonder if my male counterparts actually recognize their errors. Just because our genes aren’t XY doesn’t mean we don’t have valid opinions 😒

    I agree qith Happy Panda about getting periods over quickly. Can’t it just all flush itself out at once? Like, what’s this 5 days of wearing pads and tampons bullcrap 😅

    So relatable Shelly! I am totally with you on the weight gain. I hate that men can just “cut back a little” and lose 10 pounds. It took me years to lose 10 pounds and I exercise regularly. Finally achieved it last summer and I’ve since gained a few pounds back. You know what? I’m okay with that.

      It’s not fair!! It really isn’t fair! But I’m glad you’ve made peace with it even though it’s not fair. Did I mention that it’s not fair? 🙈

    Wonderful post and topic!! I agree that most awful thing about being a woman is getting periods & cramps.. but at the same time, getting a period means that we are healthy and thriving. IF we didn’t have one then we most likely wouldn’t be healthy . So putting it that way, it makes it better

    • Shelly DS says

      Haha look at you finding a silver lining! You are absolutely right, but it would be nice for normal to be the opposite 😅
      Thanks for the love pretty lady!

    I’m all for women empowerment! God has created us women as strong, determined, caring and loving human beings. We receive strength to keep going no matter the situation💗

I'd love to read your thoughts on this!
