The Monday to Friday work week was created based on cis men’s hormone cycle. If you have testes, your hormone cycle is 24 hours. So you basically have the same amount of energy every day.
If you’re menstruating, your hormone cycle is 28 days and so you’ll have weeks that are higher energy and ENTIRE WEEKS that are lower energy. In perimenopause, this gets more sporadic but is still not 24 hours.
You’re expected to show up to work with the same amount of energy every day. Except if you have female anatomy, you don’t have the same amount of energy every day.
This is painful. In this episode, I rant about this and other injustices.
If you were socialized as a female you were taught to be:
– pretty but not too sexy
– and to take care of everyone else around you before yourself
It’s suffocating to try to follow all these rules at once. So fuck that patriarchal bullshit.
Your homework today is to do something bad that’s aligned with your heart and your intuition.
Because the more folks socialized as women break out of these fucking patriarchal boxes and get all the energy they were using to be perfect “good girls” back, the more energy you’ll have to make your own dreams come true.
And when women have more money and power, they donate more to charity and lift other marginalized groups up.
So do something bad today that feels aligned with your heart.
