  • You definitely have to be a woman to understand a woman.
  • There are some exclusive hustles and struggles that only women will know or relate to.


  1. Chipped nail polish.

This one right here hurts like hell. You sit patiently for over 30 minutes waiting for the polish to dry, then an hour later it gets ruined!!! It’s not that we love walking around with chipped polish. Sometimes we are just ‘punishing’ our finger/toenails for being in the wrong places(where they got chipped)…. So we think.

  1. Picking an outfit

Women go through this every morning. Peep out through the window to see how the weather is gonna be. You gladly pick an outfit that matches the occasion and the weather. You put it on and 5 minutes later, you look into the mirror and you look fat!! It must be the outfit. You remove it and start looking for one that will make you look slender. The struggle never ends.

  1. Painful shoes

Every woman is guilty of this. At least ones in woman’s life, she must have squeezed her feet into a painful pair of shoes just to match her outfit and slay. At the end of the day, it’s all worth it so long as you don’t end up wobbling around.
