Day 18: what I like about being a female

Yesterdays women’s marches across the world really made me think about how great women are as a sex and how we fight for and support each other. Now I have already wrote about what like most about men, so don’t say I’m being biased!
I therefore thought I’d put together a collection of what j like about being female.

So, here we go:

Women should compliment each other more than comparing each other. Yesterday a cashier told me she loved my lipstick and that made me feel good idea, she didn’t have to say it but a little compliment like that can make anyone’s day. I love complimenting other females, whether it’s ‘I like you nails, Lipstick, hair, bags, shoes’ etc we should all do it, as that girl could be having a proper bad day and it could lift their spirits.
I like the idea that us lovely females give each other tips and advice on everything in life. We can be super honest with each other and understand each others emotions.

Three years ago I wrote a blog about empowering women and role models, and still to this day it applies. When we are seemingly still in a world where women are still behind in pay, in respect and in various aspects of life! Check out that post by clicking on the image below..


But it’s those unexpected moments in life where being a woman makes me from proud,  and it’s in the club toilet where we’re all standing there drunk. Not knowing each other, but that’s where it all happens.  

So what do we need to do……. we need to get drunk with other unstable emotional best friends.

First things first, this will happen a lot on a night out… you will tell you friends again and again and again….

Then sometimes I think, why don’t we be more obviously honest with each other? Why don’t we have more “un”drunken things. For example:

How many times in the toilets have we helped a girl out ladies? Whether taking a photo for someone, telling them they have tissue stuck to their shoe, giving them tissues before they go to the loo as there’s none there, complimenting them on their dress, their shoes, their make up, their hair, their perfume.. the list could go on and it normally does! They do ask why do women go in groups to the toilet on nights out, well that’s because we’re putting the world to rights. I remember a few months ago me and the girls were out, and one of my girlfriends was having some boyfriend issues and we were trying to give her some advice (as you do drunkenly, whilst sprawled against the wall trying to hold yourself up), and this other group of girls came and stood with us, and gave some amazing advice. It was like two tribes coming together to discuss the one thing we all had in common – men/love/relationships. You wouldn’t get that sober.

Why when drunk do we turn into complete and utter soppy messes LOL! its hilarious. I can’t count the times were me and my friends say “you’re my best friend, I love you” on nights out. It gets to the point with one of my friends when we know shes gone over to the drunk side, when we hear the famous words “guys, guys I have to tell you…….. I love you all!”. Maybe its a British thing, and that we don’t express emotions as much, but they absolutely do flood out when pissed. I say to you sober person, say “I love you” more, bite the bullet… go on, what have you got to lose that you wouldn’t when drunk.

No matter where you are, someone will always have your back, especially the girls. Because you’ve gotta stick together. Drunk minds do speak sober thoughts, but how about once in a while, we speak with our drunk mind. We say I love you more, we show off how proud we are, we have more confidence in ourselves and we have as much shitty food as we can……. and guess what, we don’t feel like we’ve been hit by something the next morning!!

So what im saying is……….. lol kinda… yes be drunk, but don’t be drunk alone. Make sure that you have your squad with you, to look after you, to stop you from texting that person, to make sure your hair/makeup/dress looks perfect and to be supported by the people who will always be there for you, because we’re all really a bit fucked up.

There you have it. A different opinion but my opinion.

  1. Yessss I agree with you so much! I kind of wish we were all a bit more expressive rather than only being able to truly say what’s on our mind when we’re drunk, and I’ve made a promise to myself to throw compliments like confetti (although it’s kind of nerve wrecking at times…)
