To all my female readers, have you ever said to yourself “Sometimes it's hard to be a woman?”. I always say this to myself every time I am feeling down, I felt like a woman has more sufferings than men (Don't get me wrong, this is just how I feel sometimes). We have to undergo a lot of pain and complications.
When I got pregnant, I cried upon knowing it because I am not ready but I have to be responsible for my actions. What's even funnier is that, when I already accepted that I'll have a baby soon, I want the baby gender to be a “boy” because I don't want her to experience the same way I am feeling about being a woman. But she's a girl, I cannot do anything about it so I will just do my best to teach her how to be tough so she can win whatever battles she may face in the future.
When we got pregnant it's hard to carry it, especially when the baby bump is getting bigger. We are having a hard time wearing shoes and even more tying the shoelaces.
We experience morning sickness, like vomiting every morning when we smell something that the baby doesn't like the smell.
We are having a hard time sleep comfortably because it's hard to find a good position due to the big belly.
We will undergo physical changes like we get lousy and ugly because we refrain from applying skincare or any products that have a strong chemical that might affect the baby's health.
We suffer insecurities because we get ugly, we get darker armpit, bikini line, neck, and even our skin will lose its glow because some nutrients for the skin will be consumed by the baby (although not all experience this, some got pregnant blooming, and beautiful).
One of our feet will be in the grave when we deliver the baby, it's 50/50 but we endure the pain of labor..or the pain from an operation if we are in a complicated situation, we will undergo a Cesarean Section for the safety of the baby and us as well.
It's hard because after we give birth we are usually prone to postpartum depression, something that is related to our mental health.
After the pain we undergo, we will be forever accountable for the kid's welfare.. we will spend sleepless nights looking out for the baby's safety.
Sometimes we forgot to take care of ourselves anymore because we are too occupied taking care of the kids, husband, and household.
Yet we are required to look fresh and young so our partners or husband will not find another woman if we will get lousy.
We are prone to emotional distress due to some factors that we we're facing against society. How the society dictates how a woman should act and behave according to its gender.. although this time society is a bit open for gender equality.
When a working mom, takes off from work she still has to do a lot of chores in the house and take care of the kids, while the husband upon arriving home they can immediately have their rest. We need to do it so our kids will still feel a mother's love even if we are working, unlike husbands once they provide financial needs at home they already become a good fathers. While moms? They have to do a lot and sometimes it's not enough to be called a good mother.
This is not a feminist article, it's just me voicing out what I felt sometimes if I am already worn out that most of the time I can say “Sometimes it's hard to be a woman”.
But for me the hardest part of being a woman is to make our way of thinking simple instead of being complicated.. sometimes we get too emotional over small things, that's why sometimes we vent our annoyance with our partners or boyfriend especially if they are being insensitive.
So boys if you wonder why your girlfriend is being grumpy, just think of it that she's having hormonal imbalance because we cannot get rid of it to our system caused by menstrual period.
But there is also a woman that they are overrated and making it always as excuses for their lapses, which bad and become toxic later on.
