Does a man ever realize what it’s like to be a female , a lady , a mother , a daughter , a daughter-in-law , a wife and most importantly a woman ?
The responsibilities of these roles are not defined by anyone but being a woman …trust me we kill ourselves to not only perform and excel in everything but we also write new job descriptions every single day , against each role , to make us better at it which is based on our previous experiences to make the life of our family better
Men talk about ladies being overly emotional ….….do they realize how much mental effort she is making to not show the intense turmoil she is actually experiencing inside herself , what is being exposed to them is only the tip of the iceberg .
