On Being a Woman


The emotions that run through a woman are like a waterfall. Forever running, flowing, falling, and never ending.

Why do we have to be so emotional?

Why are men not like this? Or if they are...where are the emotions?

I wonder if men can slice tomatoes while worrying about the light bill or tomorrow's dinner or the fact that a new mop is needed?

Do they just keep this all inside?

I can sit here and bead, while watching TV, thinking about the health of my children, worrying about the light bill, wondering what I should cook tomorrow, wishing my cats were not so finicky, because I can't afford the good cat food, wondering if my student loan will be processed, because I still owe them, worrying about everything in my life that matters, even from the tiniest, minute detail.

It's not like I wake up in the morning and think, oh I am a woman...now it is time to worry. I don't want to worry, it is just something I do everyday, whether I want to or not, I worry.

When men play video games or computer games, is that really all that is on their mind is that game? Because that is what it seems like.

I wish I could do that. I wish I could play a game on the computer and that is all I have to worry about at that given time.

But I am a woman, and I can't. Or is it just me?

You ask questions about men I see…hmmm, yes some of us are masters at holding them in, and give all the appearance of being cold; but believe me when I tell you that we still feel in spite of this, and if left to be bottled up for long enough you will eventually see it seep out like lava until…well, I can only speak for myself.

You know I worry too. I don't think there is such a thing as a woman who doesn't worry about something all the time. We would just die, literally our hearts would stop beating if all worries were gone. But to be fair, my husband worries too. Constantly. About different stuff, not really what's for dinner tomorrow, but more like, I need to change the oil in the car because it's been way more than 3 months and 3,000 miles and I can't afford for the engine to blow.
