Sometimes I Hate Being A Girl...Period.

If you're a boy, what are you doing reading a post titled I Hate Being a Girl?!

This post covers a few of things I've been sitting on lately. It's amazing how they all tie in at least once a month.

One. I am an emotional mess. This about smacked me in the face when I was set off by every little thing at work. After the 4th or 5th time I told my boss I was taking a sick day and left. Only to cry once I was in the car because I left my lunch there. Really?! Crying over lunch when I was going to pass a couple Chick-fil-a stores on my way home? I'm not just emotional once a month, I'm just a lot MORE emotional once a month, lol.

Two. I have adult acne. Some things make it FLARE LIKE CRAZY. Stress. Hormones. Unhealthy/greasy Food. I'm pretty certain of the first two, but the last one is just something I've heard and have found to be true. This month I just had a really bad flare up so it's stuck in my head. I should be thankful the last several months haven't been as bad as this one. Eeep!

Don't get all worried about my self-esteem. I just think this is truly how I see myself when I have a zit. It's all I can focus on, even if it's not that bad.

Three. I should appreciate my regular periods. Every time I start to grumble under my breath, I think about all the women in my life who don't have regular periods and have issues or may have issues with becoming pregnant. Not that this is at the top of my list anytime in the near future, but someday I hopepray I won't have a problem. Boo.

Four. I hate being a girl. Sometimes. Not Really. I don't know. The root of the problem is I was born into this body that goes though some crazy stuff. There's no other way to describe it. Guys don't have to worry about any of the things I've mentioned. Sure, they may have acne but in my opinion I don't think acne really changes the way a guy looks for the most part. One or two zits aren't anywhere on my radar when I'm checking out a guy.

I've still not found anything to combat my adult acne...anybody have suggestions? I wash my face twice daily and have tried different topical products.


  1. Cheer up buttercup. You just as beautiful to me as always! Being a girl can be a total pain, but then I think of all the amazing things we can do and then it puts a huge smile on my face! I adore you!

  2. ooo and same here about the acne, but I've been able to keep it on the down low. My secret? A good face wash, topical ointment but most importantly Argan Oil from Josie. It has changed my life. Seriously!

  3. I get headaches/migraines from stress and definitely acne from it. Ugh! Glad I'm not alone :)

  4. Yup! Agreed!

    Adult acne- I use proactiv every now and then and take Zinc. Zinc helps a lot for some reason! Mario Badescu drying lotion clears up little spots over night!

    Regular periods- yes, be thankful! When I wasn't trying to get pregnant, my irregular periods were awesome AND not so awesome. Awesome because I had them like every other month or every 3 months. Not awesome because... well, pregnancy chances, duh! Now that I am trying to get pregnant... it's pretty tough!
