Women are sometimes unpredictable. When it’s their time of the month, they can really be emotional—they cry even in the smallest things. On high times, there are even women on period who cry about a song for no explainable reason at all.
With that, we asked women about the oddest song they cried to when it’s their time of the month and their answers are too interesting not to share:
“Hindi ko alam kung anong dahilan pero naiyak na lang talaga ako sa 'Stickwitu' ng The Pussycat Dolls kasi ang sakit nu’ng kanta eh. 'Nobody's gonna love me better' sabi sa kanta. I feel attacked.”
–Julia, 27, Graphic Artist
“It was my first day, my cramps didn’t allow me to get up in bed and then suddenly, The Story So Far’s 'Clairvoyant' played and I cried especially at the part of the song when Parker sang, 'Don’t paint me black when I used to be golden.' There’s just so many emotions when I’m on period.”
–Darlene, 25, Office Admin
“Ugh. Naiyak ako sa line na 'Hey I just met you, and this is crazy. Here’s my number, so call me maybe.' Funny kasi may boyfriend naman ako so sinong hihintayin kong tumawag sa akin?”
–Paula, 23, Make-up Artist
“Naiyak ako sa '25 Minutes' ng Michael Learns to Rock kasi that time I was waiting for my friends sa mall when the song suddenly played eh naka-shuffle playlist ko. Sobrang weird.”
–Zyril, 22, Teacher
“Hiyang-hiya ako sa sarili ko kasi one time noong high school during flag ceremony naiyak ako sa 'Lupang Hinirang.' Hindi ko ma-explain kung bakit basta it happened lang. Nakakahiya but that’s me. I’m a woman.”
–Kristelle, 21, Marketing Student
“Naiyak ako sa 'Cheque' ng Lions and Acrobats kasi bukod sa nagp-PMS ako, it’s about getting into a job that doesn't pay enough. Nakakaiyak talaga ‘di ba.”
–Marian, 21,Tourism Student
“TBH, naiyak ako once sa 'Bad Boy' ng Red Velvet for no reason. Ganun ‘ata talaga ‘pag sobrang fan girl ka.”
–Jenny, 20, Education Student
It’s funny how a person’s behavior can change in a snap. So, the next time you encounter a woman crying over the most superficial reason, by all means, don’t approach her. Let her be; it’s her hormones that are in control.
