It all made sense why about three days a month I genuinely believe everyone is talking badly about me, that no one likes me, or that I am annoying everyone

It’s also to blame for sometimes being sure the friends I have only pretend to be my friends. I am so hard on myself and legitimately think I cannot do anything right, my irritability would add to that thinking, so I would get irritated and on-edge. Unfortunately, sometimes it goes deeper than irritability and lack of confidence, this is when my most intense and anxious thoughts are constant. It is when I imagine my life without the people I love or I ask the horrific question: would I be missed if I was gone?

[DearDamsels knows that] it’s all too common for women to feel like their voices aren’t worth anything, so we always want to offer opportunities for women to have their voices heard and their stories told — it’s why we describe DD as your words, your stories, your collective

Most moms who give the random unsolicited advice have good intentions and mean no harm

Keywords: tea time

You can rather listen brush it off or you may just learn something. I remember the first year of parenting I’d take whatever adult conversation I could get seeing that most of my time was spent juggling my final year of college while pumping around the clock. I think we all can agree that that there’s no wrong and right. Its all trial and error but there is light at the end of the tunnel. My only advice to pass along is for when your time comes as the mom with the advice don’t drop to many gems at once.

The Work that Girls Do

Economics in action

Let us start by considering boys first. A boy of eighteen years old (or younger) may encounter the following options: (a) get out of school/college and take up the work that is available to him; (b) continue education in the expectation of a better job in the future.

In addition to these two options, she can opt to become a mother and motherhood can change her work/education options. (A boy can become a father at 18 but that need not change his job options). The way motherhood affects a girl, depends on social conditions. It depends on private arrangements, and social/governmental support to take care of kids. I have seen girls in…
