As I turn forty this year, what I have learned from my period is that not an appropiate time to make or take important decisions. I have learned to wait and to tell myself that this is also going to be away and I will feel like me, again. When I was younger, I was always suffering from pain, but now, I do feel pain in my first day. It doesn’t stop me from doing things I need to do, maybe I do things in a slower pace but I keep doing it. I guess any woman will feel better when realize is part of us and we embrace it. I felt much better when I learned that I do not need to be perfect, no one is. Anyway, man must have something like period (lol) but they don’t talk about it. We can tell they have few days when they are grumpy, too.
