This is the best thing about being a woman in menopause. What is you ask. Everything is I say.
The two guys I wrote about the other day, in the post about reducing energy losses, one of them said one thing, and the only thing, I can agree with him on. He said women in menopause laugh more, they are not easily offended and they are interesting. I know!!! We are great!
We get more outgoing, we start traveling, we just want to live our lives to the fullest and we do that. As much as possible. Of course there are practical reasons behind this new way of living our lives. Kids are all grown up and most likely moved out of the house, we have a career of our own and don’t need the husbands money, in case we have a husband or partner which nowadays is optional, and hopefully we have our estrogen patches to take care of the hot flushes.
Other benefits are loosing the ability of constantly keeping our opinions to ourselves, not bothering about what other people will think of us and gaining the the feeling of I can do anything.
I met a friend today and we talked about life, obstacles we have overcome and in general how good it is to be where we are. Just to clarify, that doesn’t mean our lives are perfect. But life is better, easier in a sense.
That is because of the testosterone. We get a higher level of testosterone than we used to.
Some of my female friends wish they could go back to being young again because they thing they looked better then. I wish I could stay in menopause longer. Menopause probably helped me to make decision that I most likely wouldn’t have done when I was young. And yes, I laugh more, I know my value and I care more about decisions I take concerning my life.
My life, my way.
