From Puberty to Menopause !
A physical suprise for every female. It all started with a pimple on her face and terrible pain on her back. Changes occured, where she started admiring herself. She blushed and her face turned red. She knew that she has to get through this every month, and she wished for the three days to get off soon.
Anciently, wasn’t she treated bad for this?
She was regarded odd for three days, every month.
She was not allowed to move or touch anything or to cross the place-limit provided, meaning she has to be away and everything she touches is a sin.
She was followed to every place inside the house wherever she goes, with a person behind sprinkling water on the floor.
With all these, soon she has to be ready to get laid with a man after marriage. Panic, pain, and fear. All at once. She has no option. She was expected to become pregnant the very next month. If not, they called her infertile and she has no eligibility to be a woman unless she gives birth.
A lot of hormonal changes during pregnancy. It wasn’t simple at all. Breast pain, gagging, dizziness, and drowsy all day through along with emotional stress. 9 long months. Couldn’t lay on comfortable positions to sleep with heartburn and headache. You lose weight and they said “What’s wrong? Lost a lot of weight? You’re so unhealthy. Eat for two”. And then, you put on more weight and they commented “This is overweight. Eat less. Or else you will end up in C-section”. Only a very few understands and help women to go forward. Others were much willing to break her confidence.
Delivers a baby with pain and happiness. Be it breastfeeding or formula feeding, she is now a new mother who is surviving distress with stretch marks and stitches, giving life to a little human. Lots of sleepless nights, postpartum depression, lack of good health. And then, she was ready for the next baby. That’s the power of motherhood.
Once she attains 50, she reaches her menopause.
After all, she was pure; she was bold; she was powerful; she was strong. Every woman has to be honoured, celebrated, admired, and glorified, because she is recognized for this.
To every women who are battling to become pregnant, you surely will. VERY SOON. ♥️♥️ Don’t let this break you. Cheer up. This too shall pass. This doesn’t make you any less of a woman. You are more stronger than anybody else.
Lots of love to all the women out there. HAPPY WOMEN’S DAY. 👸
