As a woman, I know all too well what it feels like to be possessed by a force stronger than myself; to have an uncontrollable urge to do harm to others, when I am not a violent person. Hormones are a part of life, but we just have to learn to work with them.
My husband knows that at different times of every month I am close to a serial killer and will bite the head off anything that moves. He also knows that not many days after that, I am a nymphomaniac from Mars that wants to do things to him that you could only find in the RRR-rated section of the video stores you can only find online.
I have learned to send him on errands or to his friend’s houses (with the kids in tow) on my homicidal days, and send the kids to their friend’s houses when my Mars days hit. I don’t want anyone to get the wrong idea here, not every woman is as drastically hormonal as I am, but I admit that I am.
But, I will have to say in defense of women, that men are hormonal too! Studies have been done and it has been found that both men and women have a “cycle.” Men cycle each and every day; women once a month. Think about it; is there a time when the men in your life are a little cranky each day? Generally speaking it’s between 5 p.m. and 6 p.m., right after work. For us women, it’s only once a month so it builds up and then releases is fury all at once instead of slowly dispensing itself little bits at a time.
So, for you male readers, don’t always assume that all women are the same. Each woman has their own severity level. Just pay attention to the signs and learn “your woman” and things will go very smoothly. For the women, learn to accept the days you are a serial killer and let those around you run and cower. Life will work out much more smoothly if we all just pay attention and learn to live with the inevitable. Embrace life as it is, because it’s the life you have been given and nothing can change the internal struggle for control. Good Luck!
