The Pain Women Go Through


*WARNING* The contents of this post may be too much for the "stronger sex" to handle.

I have always loved to pamper myself. What can I say - I like my comforts! I take pleasure in the little things in life.

  • A steaming hot cup of strong coffee.
  • An hour or two at the spa.
  • Cool and crisp sheets at the end of a long day.
  • A nice hot bath (or shower).

The list can go on and on. However, I never really paid attention to the things that a woman "must" go through to keep herself looking nice. I always held the belief that appearances are way overrated.

Then I discovered doing things for myself. The rest, as the cliche goes, is history.

I discovered that the agony of having tiny hairs stripped from your skin results in being more comfortable. (Don't ask me how or why - not prepared to share that much.)

I discovered that the discomfort of having your nails scraped and shaped results in prettier feet and hands. (Yeah, too girly, but as it turns out, a lot of fun as well.)

I discovered that the pain of a needles and creams and whatnot on your face gives you a glow and helps you deal with chin acne, among other things. (Never mind the tears that come with it.)

We do go through a lot of pain - some of them voluntary, some not. It seems to me, though, that pain - in whatever form it is manifested - simply makes a better person out of you.

No, I am not masochistic.
