PMS + MOODSWINGS= BAD DAY

I was catching up with a good friend through Facebook messenger last night. It was like College all over again because we were reminiscing some of the funniest moments we had each other back then. I asked how he was doing in California and questioned him about having plans of pursuing her crush in work. His answer definitely brought my attention, “Aside from the fact that I’m not yet ready, I think I can’t handle girls and their PMS.”

—Okay. That part of the conversation clearly made me think of many things.

First of all, men should be taught what PMS is before they start judging.

What is PMS anyway? It stands for Premenstrual Syndrome. Many men think it is the period itself, but it’s not. So what’s Premenstrual syndrome by the way?

Premenstrual syndrome (PMS) refers to physical and emotional symptoms that occur in the one to two weeks before a woman’s period.

Haha!

Maybe if men did a little research and attempted to understand what PMS actually is, they wouldn’t be a headache to every women out there. Granted, I have found men who are considerate and take time to understand, but only a few.

We are not free from any unrighteousness.

Even though I am a Christian, that does not make me free from unrighteousness. I’m no perfect. The Bible even says, “Indeed, we all make many mistakes. For if we could control our tongues, we would be perfect and could also control ourselves in every other way,” James 3:2 (NLT) But being imperfect is not an excuse for us to keep on failing or sinning. Should we keep on sinning so that God can show us more and more of his wonderful grace? Definitely no. We still sin no matter what but there’s always God’s amazing grace. Though His grace does not grant that we have the license to sin. It’s a reminder for us that we need Jesus to overcome sin. We need to humble ourselves and ask for forgiveness.
