Positive Words For Menopause – Advice From Fleabag
… But then you’re free, no longer a slave…
These positive words for menopause give us all hope. Such a powerful piece of work. I really think this sums up the pain, but ultimately, the positive empowerment of the menopause transition.
“Women are born with pain built in,” she says. “It’s our physical destiny: period pains, sore boobs, childbirth, you know. We carry it within ourselves throughout our lives, men don’t.
“They have to seek it out, they invent all these gods and demons and things just so they can feel guilty about things, which is something we do very well on our own. And then they create wars so they can feel things and touch each other and when there aren’t any wars they can play rugby.
“We have it all going on in here inside, we have pain on a cycle for years and years and years and then just when you feel you are making peace with it all, what happens?
The menopause comes, the f****** menopause comes, and it is the most wonderful f****** thing in the world. And yes, your entire pelvic floor crumbles and you get f****** hot and no one cares. But then you’re free, no longer a slave, no longer a machine with parts, you’re just a person, in business.”
Sometimes its hard to find positive words for menopause so this scene is absolutely refreshing. Menopause is a powerful and empowering transition to the second and most exciting period of your life and its nice to see it recognised as such…
