Man, this weekend has been tough.
Friday I hosted a party for my Arbonne consultant and everyone who said they could make it cancelled on me.
I was totally bummed and felt hurt and a little angry.
I know this isn’t true, but it really felt like, Omg I have no real friends!
One by one they all started texting me they couldn’t make it.
I sat in my kitchen and looked at all the salami, cheese, fruit, and nuts I had set out along with all the wine and drinks and just wanted to cry.
Sunday Nate said something about the outfit I was wearing and poor guy, I had it out with him.
I had so many tears that I needed to let out just from it being that time of the month and he unluckily ended up being my target:(
Advice for the guys
For any of the guys reading this, sorry this is TMI, but you too can learn something about how to deal with a hormonal partner.
Sometimes you have to be extra careful what you say.
Something she would normally take well on any other normal day, might be just what she needs to unleash all those damn tears.
I cried at least three times this weekend!
This cycle has been a pain in the ass.
So, she is really more sensitive to things that are negative or annoying/irritating.
Sometimes you just need to come home with a chocolate brownie (chocolate helps) and a really ooey, gooey, chick flick.
A dramatic love story.
So that she has an outlet for those tears that need to come out, and so that YOU won’t be the target.
And tell her she’s beautiful.
Because all she notices is the premenstrual water retention and increased cravings.
And give her extra kisses because…
when she doesn’t deserve it is when she needs it the most.
I have to say, it’s so crazy to be a woman.
Some guys think we’re making this stuff up.
But guys are never going to understand what it feels like to have crazy hormonal shifts.
I mean it’s BIG stuff.
If a woman can PREVENT pregnancy JUST by taking the pill (full of hormones), you know that’s some powerful shit. (man I’m cursing a lot more on this blog)
Advice for the ladies
So ladies, what do you do when you’re hormonal?
I recommend chocolate, avoiding caffeine for the week (it can cause headaches), a good dramatic chick flick that will help you cry those tears that need something to attach themselves to, and most importantly, be kind to yourself.
Let your “to do list” slide this week.
Accept that your body and mind want to go at a slower pace.
Don’t force yourself to pound it out on the treadmill.
Go for a contemplative walk instead.
Or do some yoga.
And when it’s all over, give that man the biggest hug of his life.
And a BJ.
He deserves it.
