EXCUSE ME, WERE WOMEN SUPPOSED TO BE THE WEAKER SEX?

Forgive my confusion but, well, let’s take a look shall we…

Girls, we grow up with a few years of grace and then bam, periods.

For the next few decades, we battle with at LEAST a week of hormones, mood wings, irrational thoughts, sleepless nights, extreme pain, itchy skin, the inconvenience of having to deal with the actual practical side of it every day and oh, let’s not forget the fact that many things cannot be undertaken during that time.
Some really fun things too. It sucks.

Makes life really pretty tricky indeed.

Shall I just reiterate that this is EVERY MONTH. Plus the ‘middle of the cycle’ mood swings that most of us are treated to…joy.

Then comes sex, the responsibility of anything other than enjoyment here, pretty much lies with us. It’s a lot to handle – kind of takes a chunk of the fun away.

Do we choose to pump ourselves full of hormones to be on the safe side? If so we deal with MORE MOOD SWINGS, acne, weight gain and oh so much more besides.

So much fun right?

Then comes pregnancy, some of us are blessed with a smooth ride. Many, MANY of us go through hell. Miscarriage, still birth, complications and near-death birth experiences that would scare the bejesus out of anyone.

The moment you look at that little face you created within your own body – IT’S LIKE RIPPING OUT YOUR HEART AND WEARING IT ON THE OUTSIDE FOREVERMORE!

That is how vulnerable becoming a parent makes us. The world becomes THE most terrifying place!

Yet, we handle it all.

Then there’s breastfeeding and the utter confusion, fear and worry of being responsible for bringing up little humans….

We do it, every day we do it. Some days we have no idea how we will do it, but we do it.

Finally, we reach a point in our lives where we start to feel calm and in control, we see what really matters and our hormones settle down a little and give us a break…

Then BAM – Menopause. You thought puberty was bad ladies, this will really test your metal.

But, you will get through it and best of all, you will laugh about it. Because that is what us women do. We talk, we share, we support and we somehow manage to laugh.

Women the weaker sex?

Now that really is funny.

And finally, I would like to introduce a new saying…

Forget man up – let’s woman up! What does it mean? You just get on with EVERYTHING and still manage to smile.

Pretty damn amazing if you ask me.

Ladies, if you feel me, you know what to do, pass it on!
