Sometimes, you feel pretty badass being a woman, and you feel like you’ve got all of life’s mysteries figured out – other times, you are losing your mind and wondering what on Earth is going on that day.
Any day has its ups and downs, let’s be honest, but sometimes you feel like the world is set out to make you feel like shit, like it’s against you. But don’t worry, as awkward as it may be, rest assured that all women have been there.
So just for the fond memories, let us remind you what your most cringe-worthy deepest, darkest secrets are:
1. Walking to a board room and breaking your heel
So what do you do now? Do you get in there late with your heel very badly glued on? Do you get in on time with no shoes? Or do you wobble in there awkwardly pretending you haven’t noticed your shoe is broken? And what are your colleagues to say? No matter what you are going to do, it’s going to be awkward that’s for sure!
2. Missing a bit when shaving your legs
After checking, feeling and shaving your legs, you are pretty damn sure you are ready to rock that dress of yours and head to your destination – just one problem, whilst you’re sitting outside, you can still see some pesky hairs around, and in the oddest of places – how did you not notice them?
3. Going back into work with greasy hair after an intense gym sesh
You’ve already washed your hair the day before, plus the gym showers are gross, so no wonder you don’t want to wash your hair. But then again, you have to go back into work. So you’ve just decided to fake it and tie your head into the scruffiest bun ever and tell everyone you already had that ‘do this morning – and no one’s falling for it.
4. Flashing your underwear when you get into your taxi
You’re dolled up to the nines, and you’re ready for a fabulous first date, but whilst you’re getting into the taxi with prince charming, you’re not being so elegant or charming by flashing your underwear to him as he lets you get in first – damn you for being so chivalrous!
5. Farting in yoga class
Yoga is hard – it’s not only physically challenging, but holding it all in with all that leaning and stretching is probably the worst part. Plus the relaxing, quiet atmosphere definitely doesn’t do you any favors – just a few… more… minutes…
6. When your work enemy gets the promotion you wanted
So the boss has put you up against that girl at work you just can’t stand, and the worst news possible is announced – she got the job. They all say to show dignity and your hard work will pay off one day, blah blah blah, but you can’t help but feel cross, and maybe even show it a little.
7. When you expect a proposal but you get a jewelry box with a necklace in instead
Things are really hotting up between you and the famous prince charming from earlier on who you flashed but stayed by you anyway – and now he’s got you a lovely little jewelry box – is this the life-changing moment? Are you getting hitched? Ohhh, he’s getting on one knee.. Nope, he’s just kidding, he’s got you a Pandora necklace. Very funny.
8. Having leftover lipstick on your teeth when flashing a huge smile
Whether you are in a boardroom trying to make a great impression or you’re on a date trying to show him your cute smile, nothing is more embarrassing than having leftover lipstick on your teeth. Looking like a clown gone wrong is never a good look!
9. Not wearing a bra at home and your neighbor decides to swing by
We all love lazy days, chilling in sweatpants and no bra - you just feel so free… that is until your neighbor decides to kill the mood by knocking on your door. Do you pretend to not be in? Do you rush to put something on? And then when you do answer the door, you are sweating and out of breath, trying to get rid of them - awkward!
10. Getting busted by your boyfriend when checking his phone
Your boyfriend’s gone for a shower and you are left to your own devices. Next thing you know, his home screen has flashed before your eyes and you’re intrigued to see what all his conversations are about - you’ve barely had the time to read all his Messenger notifications when your bf has caught you red-handed - gulp!
Now your turn for a little confession. What’s the thing that you have done that made you feel like shit? We want all the details – well come on, we told you ours!
