Sometimes It's Hard To Be A Woman

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.

Image Source: pinterest.com

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.

Why do I say that sometimes it's hard to be a woman?

Well as a woman we have this complicated thinking and attitude that are sometimes uncontrollable or is hard to control due to mood swings, overthinking, and other factors that can affect it.

It's hard to be a woman because.

We have to undergo a monthly period, this will make us sick sometimes bearing abdominal cramps, suffering dysmenorrhea, causing a hormonal imbalance that will lead to mood swings.

Sometimes it's hard to determine what we felt because even the slightest detail can make us upset especially if the menstrual period signs are coming.

We crave food like we are pregnant, we get annoyed at little things, we are very sensitive, and explode like a bomb for invalid reasons.

It's kinda tiring that we have to experience it every month. it's hard to be a woman.

It's hard to be a woman because.

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).

It's hard to be a woman because.

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.

It's hard to be a woman because.

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.

Closing Thoughts

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.

As always, thank you for reading!

Very well written. Well, both men and women have it hard out there, sometimes it's just a continuity of how hard you make it to be, but returning to the question, it is also important to know that men could go through a lot of thing and it is unseen because they are men but not how hard it turns out for women most times, totally agree with your write up.

Same as you sis. I also told myself that it's so hard to be a woman. I haven't tried to feel pain during period but still it's hassle to have monthly periods. But when I got pregnant and felt the morning sickness, it was the hard stage of pregnancy. Until O need to undergo CS cause I my cervix got stocked at 2cm only and the pain was so much to bare. Women have lots of pain to went through and yeah totally hard it is.

I totally agree with you. Being a woman is the most difficult role in this world. Given all the struggles of a woman, but there are still people that degrade the capacity of a woman.

Yet, women are distinguished to fit the standards of many people, because if you're not, you're struggles of being a woman is worthless..

Me, I even draft an article about this pero diko na tinuloy. Pang naaunfair-an lang ako kasi bakit babae lang, I mean I know men experience something too pero mas malala kasi sa mga girl ee. Yong pag may period ka tapos dysmenorrhea? Ang lagi kong tanong, bat ba ang hirap maging babae? Bat di nalang napunta sa lalaki ang ganito tapos tayo nalang ang manganganak. Para fair sana, kasi sa kanila magpa circumcise lang sila after a weeks okay na wala ng kasunod. Noon talaga hiniling ko pa na sana naging lalaki nalang ako. Kasi mahirap talagang maging babae. Minsan nga diko na din ma gets ang ugali ko, hahaha. Kakaasar.

Indeed it is hard for sometime to be a girl. The society we live in become sad on baby girl's birth. The they always order a girl, what to do or what not to do. Dont go outside you are a girl, dont do that you are girl, don't make friends you are a girl. Then after that, a girl leaves her house just for an unknown person (arrange marriage). Sometimes her husband would be an alcoholic and violent, so she have to bear that too. Undergo labor pain. Nurturing her children all her life. Many more things to do.. Its very really hard to be a woman.

Yes it is difficult to be a woman, I identify myself when you say that for small things we explode.

We accumulate bad times, day-to-day experiences that annoy us and in the end, like a balloon, we explode for not resisting anymore.

We face the selfish family and sometimes we ourselves are selfish, but most of us think more of the other first before ourselves.

Yes it is difficult to be a woman, when we cannot fix something broken in the house and there is no one to give you a hand and so every detail accumulates and then there are those who have the nerve to say that you are grumpy or that you stop stress.

Naku, totoo talaga yan sis. Minsan nga naisip ko bakit pa ako naging babae. Noon pag may dalaw ako, halos hindi ako makagalaw sa sobrang sakit. Akala nila nag-eenarte lang ako. Hindi kaya madali magkaroon ng dysmenorrhea. Walang buwan yata na wala akong absent noong nag-aaral pa ako dahil lang sa dysmenorrhea. Dati noong teenager days ko, naiinggit ako sa kapatid kong lalaki. Malaya kasi siyang makapaglakwatsa samantalang ako dapat palaging nasa bahay lang. At ang pinaka worst ay yung hindi muna ako pinag-aral ng college pagkatapos ko ng high school. Ang reason ng papa ko ay dapat yung kuya ko muna dahil lalaki siya. Total naman daw babae ako, hindi ako ang maghahanapbuhay para sa pamilya ko.

Well, my friend, I have read somewhere that, if a person feels depressed or something underestimated towards himself or herself, they will start to search done reasons to blame them as constraints. I can also make many points that to be a man is hard. It just a comment I will go with only one example " When we see our child struggling to get up, we man just like to see our child getting up on their own, we let to stand on their own." When they fall we too like to hit them and say, try one more time my baby, but we can't . we too have emotions, we too have tears but we man can't show it to other family members because they rely on us. If we show our tears they will lose hope. It is hard to be a man. Normally, a woman crying but it is not for man". Well, my friend, you are not a man and see man are strong than us, but the situation is not.

This nature always comes with justice, we may have weak point standing individually but when man and women get themselves as partners then it becomes perfect. When you git periods, there you will get someone to help you, when git pregnant there will be someone to stand by near you and say don't worry baby, out the princess is near to come. When a man likes to cry, he finds a shoulder to lead his head and drop tears.

This may be hard to see separately but when you get a partner that becomes your strength. Be optimistic.

Yes, I agree on your point too. I know when it comes to family men are the lead foundation and if we tend to see them weaker family will likely lose its hope.. sorry if this sounds bias tho, just that sometimes we feel this way when we suffer unbearable pain..

I got a man who tried his best to support me in everything I am going through, at least I can see optimism with the future ahead 😊

Sabi ko nga po minsan sa kapatid ko na lalaki "sana lang talaga kayo nalang nireregla!" HAHA. pag may mens po kasi ako, ansakit din talaga ng puson ko, minsan naiiyak talaga ako sa sakit, kaya naghahot compress nalang ako. Ayun, it helps naman. Kaya ko naman nasasabi sa brother ko yun, ako kasi taga luto dito samin, tapos inaasar nya ako lagi, iritang irita ako sa kanya haha. Kaya minsan naisip ko talaga, sana lalake nalang ako.

I am not yet finish reading this article but I am already writing this comment. I may not be biologically born as woman but I understand your sentiment. Being a woman itself is difficult. You experience monthly periods, unexplained mood swings, and even postpartum depression. But all of these hardships in your life makes you a woman. All women are incredible. Women can do things that men can't do. I salute all women. 🥰

Sometimes, it's hard to be a man because... women are so hard to figure out. They make us guess what's in their minds, they expect us to be like psychics. It's hard to be a man because when women show their tantrums, they will tell us guys, "it's natural, because our hormones dictate us to behave like this." But when we men also do "what our hormones tell us," women slap our faces.

It's so hard, really hard to be a man.
