No matter where you are in the world, there are certain life struggles and situations that are almost a given if you're a woman. In order to make this case in point, people started posting pictures all over the internet that give us an inevitable glimpse into the daily challenges so many women experience in their day-to-day lives. From relationships, periods, careers, love, and pets, this witty collection of photos will surely make you feel like you are not alone in what you're going through, all while giving you the good laugh that you need!
1. How To Make Sure That Male TSA Agents Don’t Touch Your Stuff
If you’ve traveled a bit, you know how annoying it is to be “randomly selected” for that routine bag check. But this woman has mastered the art of making male TSA agents uncomfortable as soon as they open her luggage.
She just threw a bunch of pads in there to make sure that next time he thinks twice before searching her bag.
2. When You Shave For The First Time In Months
Shaving can be such a pain for some, so many women will take on any opportunity to not do it or as long they can. Nowadays especially, when many of us are stuck at home, it's hard for some of us to even remember the last time we shaved!
In this relatable photo, this woman reminds us of how much we feel ourselves when we finally do!
3. When You Suddenly Remember That Awkward Thing You Did In 2008
All of us do something that we’re not necessarily proud of in life. And while we’re usually able to bury the cringy moment away from our minds, it somehow has a way of popping up when we're seconds from falling asleep.
Remember those moments when you were just chilling, or taking a quick nap, and you suddenly woke up with a clear memory of messing things up a decade ago?
4. 10 Minutes After Saying You're On A Diet
Diet culture has existed for centuries. While some actors in the beauty industry have done their best to show just how detrimental this can be in the long-term, almost all of us know what it’s like to be on a diet once or twice in our lifetimes.
This hilarious photo clearly shows that moment when the diet just seems to no longer be worth it.
5. When You’re Just Squeezing Your Foundation
While wearing and experimenting with makeup can be fun, we never seem to know exactly what we can get when we squeeze some foundation.
When this woman was getting herself ready and putting some foundation on, she was surprised by the very interesting shape that came out of the bottle. Is it a coincidence? Guess we’ll never know!
6. When Your Boyfriend Has To Give You His Shoes
Though the times of dressing up and wearing uncomfortable heels seem like something of the past nowadays, with one look at this photo, many women can reminiscence about the “struggle”.
Taking off the heels at the end of the night is arguably one of the best feelings in the world. As if we needed yet another reason to love Ed Sheeran more than we already do, seeing him take off his shoes to give to his girlfriend while he carries her shoes makes us feel beyond happy that there are at least a few gentlemen left in the world.
7. When Your Purse Tips Over In The Backseat And Everything Spills Out
Packing is hard. And sure, minimalism is great, but sometimes you just need to make sure that you have all your options available at all times. This person surely went for that path.
After her boyfriend hit a sharp turn, her suitcases burst open in the back, and we couldn’t relate more to how many clothes ended up spread all over the car.
8. When Your Mom Introduces You To People
Moms will be moms, and if there’s one thing they won’t do, it's ignore an opportunity to show people how much they love you. But more than often, that is done in the most embarrassing way, and this photo surely captures that.
Can you feel the cringe? In retrospect, this couldn’t be truer to the time you used to be a sleepy teenager.
9. Mom Made Everybody Get Out Of The Picture With The Food Because, "Ain’t Nobody Help"
When this mom finished cooking a yummy feast for her family, she felt a little bit fed up that nobody helped, as always.
In order to make things clear, she decided to sit down and ask one of her children to take a “family” picture with all the food she made, with the catch that only she got to be in the picture.
10. My 6 Year Old Brother Went On A Date While I’m Just Struggling To Get A Text Back
Late bloomers will totally relate to this one. How many of us experienced seeing everyone around us, including our younger siblings, rocking it in the dating world while we were just trying to get someone to text us back?
Unfortunately, dating can be hard, and sometimes it just takes some of us a little bit of time and lots of disappointment to make it out there.
11. What You Order Online Vs What You Get
Ah, the struggle of online shopping. Let’s make things clear, online shopping is great, and the revolutionary way of shopping has sure made our lives easier.
But sometimes it can make it really hard too, especially when we order something and, after we finally get it, it’s nothing similar to the model we saw in the original dress. Well, guess you win some, you lose some folks!
12. Just Another Unrealistic Body Expectation For Women
Yep, while this one is inevitably funny, it brings up a necessary and ongoing conversation about body image and the continuous spread of unrealistic body expectations for women since the beginning of time!
Every day, women are force-fed societal expectations, targetted ads, and overall life situations that are simply unwelcome. Whoever this person is, they sure managed to make an extremely good point with this satire.
13. When A Girl Finally Tells You What’s Wrong
Here’s the thing, there is a silent understanding that after a girl keeps things to herself for too long that there will eventually be a lot to talk about.
While this is by no means a characterization of every woman out there, it’s enough for a good number of us.
14. That Gentle Touch That Says “We’ll Talk Later”
You know that moment when you’re out with your girlfriends and you suddenly see something that needs to be addressed later? We all know exactly what that gentle touch of a hand or ferocious look means.
Absolutely no one else around will understand that an entire conversation about that moment is about to unfold in a couple of minutes and it ain’t going to be pretty!
15. When The Choker Trend Is So Fly That Just Wearing A Shoelace Gets You Compliments
There has been no easier time to follow through with trends as soon as they hit the market. And while staying on trend isn’t always easy, this woman is showing us just how we can improvise whenever we want to bend the rules just a tad.
At the time, the choker trend was so strong that even her Nike shoelaces got her a ton of compliments.
16. Carry Yourself With The Confidence Of This Girl Holding An Owl
It's hard to feel confident sometimes, especially in a world that is constantly testing us. In fact, many of us take a lifetime to get there, but not this little girl!
As we can see in this photo, this girl has unlocked something that many of us want to learn, so may we all strive to attain the self-confidence that she has while holding this massive owl.
17. When You're Just Too Busy With "Important" Online Quizzes To Go Out
Yeah, you bet she’s busy! Busy taking an important quiz that tells her exactly what type of pizza she is.
Truth be told, there are times when all you want to do is eat some junk food, watch random things, and do unscientific quizzes that teach us absolutely nothing in life. What can we say, life is hard, sometimes you just need a break.
18. When He Believes You’re Not Mad
There is no explanation for why many of us do that, but the truth is that when we’re asked whether we’re mad or not, we often say a gentle “no” when we actually want to scream, “You bet I am!”.
If your partner has been around for a while, he (or she) will most probably know exactly how to assess your expression when you answer, instead of trusting what you actually say.
19. When Mom Orders Some Leggings
Once again, we are faced with the wonders of online shopping. Depending on the website and the brands, sometimes there is just no way you can know that the thing you’re ordering will fit.
For this girl’s mom, things didn’t go according to plan at all. When she ordered a pair of shiny leggings online, she was in for a huge disappointment by the time she got them.
20. How Close Your Life Is To Falling Completely Apart
Sometimes life hits us in the face with no warning, and this photo of Rihanna’s heel missing a hole because of a fraction of a millimeter could be us several times in just one day.
It makes us reminisce about that moment when literally everything in life seemed to be about to fall apart, and we had to hold on to the only thing that would keep us grounded.
21. When No One Is Paying Attention
How annoying is it when you're trying to tell an interesting story (interesting for you, anyway), and literally no one around seems to be listening?
Occasionally, you just need to take some drastic measures to bring everyone's attention right back to you, and this cat shows us exactly how to do it sometimes.
22. How I Feel Right Now
The blues are real, and this cat is the epitome of how so many of us feel right now. Sometimes we just can't deal with life and all we want to do is lay face down and hide from our problems.
It does seem like this is this cat's favorite position to be in though, and she has mastered the art of hiding away.
23. When You're Trying To Get Ready And Someone Opens The Door
All of us take a different amount of time getting ready. While some of us may take five minutes to get that hair and make-up done, some of us might be in the bathroom for a few hours.
Who can't be related to the moment everything is still literally out of place: the hair is tied weirdly, the base is half-done, and someone suddenly opens the door and sees you looking like little Gollum?
24. You Are Beautiful And You Will Do Great Today
Sometimes we just need to give ourselves a pep talk before starting another day. We all know how life has been hard, and how the year 2020 has us caught completely off guard.
So there's been a lot of self-love and self-understanding happening, otherwise, life can get overwhelming. In this picture, this cute little one seems to be saying his intentions for the day.
25. Where Do You See Yourself In Ten Years?
Okay, we'll get to the meaning of this photo in a second, but can we just acknowledge this heavenly place with the cutest family of pups on Earth?
With that said, the little cutie that is hidden behind the pillow on the corner sure has a full perspective of where he'll be in the next ten years - exactly the same place he is in right now.
26. When You Cut Your Hair But Actually Liked It Longer
So many of us make this rookie mistake. We wake up feeling like we're ready for a change, go to the hairdresser, ask them to chop that hair off, and then it hits us.
We didn't actually want that change to come through with half of our hair gone and no way to style the new short hair. We cry and we regret in silence, and hopefully never make that mistake again.
27. Actual Photo Of Model Vs Me In A Bathing Suit
There is often no better way in life to face our fears and insecurities with a joke or two. And that's exactly what the person who posted this picture online did.
Instead of feeling sorry and sad for the wonderful rolls she has (which most of us do too!), she decided to joke about the difference between a model wearing something and herself.
28. When You Don't Know What You Want To Eat So Your Partner Gives You A Big Plate Of "IDK"
How relatable is that moment when your boyfriend asks you, "What do you want to eat?" and we say, "I don't know..."
Well, it seems like this boyfriend got fed up with it, and decided to feed a huge plate of "IDK" to his girlfriend. We have to say that he hilariously made a really good point for himself right here.
29. How's Life Going?
While we don't always have to be brave, we often forget to embrace that sadness and instead, try our best to keep that smile alive.
But it turns out that this picture depicts exactly what some of our faces look like when someone asks us how life is going. A broken smile with some dried tears on the sides of our face.
30. Me Whenever I See A Dog
Dogs are the cutest thing in the entire world, and for some of us, they are cuter and so much better than people! This hilarious illustration pretty much sums up so many of us whenever we spot a dog in the street.
Literally, everything around us becomes pointless, and the cute dog is the only thing that matters at that moment.
31. A Cruel Pore Strip
We're not exactly sure how to feel about this one. While we can't deny that pores are real, and all of us have them, something about this chocolate-coated strawberry makes us want it a little bit less.
Still, though, how surprising is it when we do that pampering at-home facial and we realize how much our pores have been clogged?
32. When Men Say, "Why Should Women Get Free Tampons When We Have To Pay For Razors?"
Amongst many things, one of the most annoying comments we hear from guys out there is the typical complaint about having to spend money on razors when women get to have free tampons.
I mean, where should we start? Let's use Rachel Green's famous quote for this one and end the discussion once and for all: "no uterus, no opinion," period!
33. When You Sit Down And See Those Rolls In Your Stomach
It's been a long time coming, but more and more, we get to see real bodies in the advertisement industry, in the media, and especially on social media.
And well, real bodies also have rolls, stretch marks, pimples, hair, and they are all beautiful and valid, sister! So what's the best way to embrace those rolls? To make a joke about it, of course.
34. After The Fire Alarm Went Off These Ladies Walked Out With Their Plates #priorities
There is no doubt that life is a little bit easier once we manage to identify our priorities and hold on to them throughout any situation we find ourselves in. Take these two girls for example.
When a fire alarm went off at Westfield Stratford mall they were in the middle of their meal at Nando's. So what did they do when they needed to evacuate? They took the meal with them!
35. When Someone Decides To Test Your Mood
There should be a universal rule that whenever you're in a bad mood, you should just be left alone. But there's always someone who is ready to test your mood in ways that you're just not up for.
So here's a perfect illustration of the moment someone tests you while you're already in a bad mood, and all you can is explode.
36. Why Do I Look Like The Ride?
When this girl went on a ride she never thought that her face would eventually look exactly like the ride itself. And well, it can happen to the best of us!
She took the entire thing like a pro and decided to share this side-by-side picture that not only makes us laugh out loud, but makes us want to ride it too.
37. When Other Girls Say They Can't Eat In Front Of Guys
Here's the thing, some of us never really quite understood the meaning of not being able to eat in front of guys. What's the deal with that?
We have to eat, and there is arguably almost nothing better and more delicious than eating a delicious burrito with your partner, so why suffer? Eat that burrito, girl, it's tasty and you deserve it!
38. The Three Stages Of Having A Crush
Seriously, the hilarious picture this girl posted couldn't be more accurate for some people.
She used the caption: "3 Stages of dating", and then proceeded to explain that the guy on the left is in the "staring at her stage", the one in the middle is in the "thinking about her stage", and the last one is in the "stalking her on social media" stage.
39. There's Two Types Of Girls
There a plenitude of "types" of girls in the world, because you know, we can be whatever and whoever we want. But there are certain stereotypes that are way too relatable for most girls, and this one is one of them.
While for some of us the first thing we think about when we hear the word highlighter is make-up, for others, it's a marker.
40. Looking For A Relationship As Strong As Her Pants
Alright, jokes aside, that looks kind of painful. Thankfully though, this girl seems to have bought the strongest pants in the market because, as much as they look like they're about to rip, they're holding on for dear life.
So we don't blame the person who took this picture for wanting a relationship as strong as this one, we all do!
41. Wake Up Pretty Vs Explore Your Future
This is why so many women (and men) preach about the importance of giving girls the tools and resources to unlock their potential from a young age. Unfortuenly, several media sources continuously fail to do so, and the double standards are real.
While girls are taught to look pretty in the morning, boys are encouraged to explore their future. I mean, are we in the 1940s?
42. When You Only Look Like One Of The Other, There Is No In Between
Yep, many girls will certainly relate to this one. We either put in all the effort and look like a freaking bomb, or we put in absolutely no effort and stay in sweatpants for days, and sometimes even weeks (especially these days).
So this girl decided to show how she usually rolls. What's the deal with something being in-between anyway, what's the point?
43. One Of The Most Underrated Struggles Out There
This struggle is so real, we can't find an explanation as to why it isn't talked about more often. This girl took a selfie to point out those annoying moments when you take your glasses off, and they become completely tangled into her hair.
For some of us, it can take a second to untangle it, and for others, it may take centuries.
44. The Gender Pay Gap Is Everywhere
Now here's a hilariously sad reminder that the pay gap is still here, and apparently, it doesn't only exist in the workforce. Gendered objects also get to face some gender inequality, according to this picture.
At the moment, women earn 81 cents for every dollar earned by men, and that is after decades of activism. Clearly, though, this is also true within the anthropomorphic hoover community.
45. When You Get Home And You Have To Decide If You're Going To Take Care Of All Your Chores
There is probably never a better moment to take a bath than the moment you get home and realize that you still have a thousand things to do.
Because the thought of doing them is so overwhelming, how many of us have found ourselves in need of a bath to calm ourselves down before we begin doing absolutely anything. Who can't relate, really?
46. Don't Ask How This Happened
Every once in a while we face situations where we ask ourselves: "How did I get here?" This picture is probably one of the best examples of this.
When this girl posted a picture of the disaster she just encountered, she was honest enough to admit that she had no idea how that happened.
47. When They Say "I'm Not Like The Other Guys"
Ladies, how many of us have developed the "douchebag" detecting skill, especially when guys say things like this?
If you've had some experience, or seen some of your girlfriends struggle with boys, you'll know that nothing good is about to come after a guy says: "I'm not like the other guys." If they say it, either run or give them the face!
48. What's Inside A Celebrity's Bag?
This girl decided to post a hilarious side-by-side picture of the reality show queen, Kim Kardashian, holding her bag, next to a photo of what's inside of it.
She then added this funny caption, "Always wondered if the inside of celebs bags look like - the inside of mine." By the looks of it, we're going to say Kim could use a little tidying up.
49. What $80 Of Make Up Actually Looks Like
While there are some awesome makeup brands that are also as affordable as possible, the truth is that a couple of really good staple makeup items can really add up in their price.
Here, a girl shows what some guys think $80 dollars worth of makeup is in comparison to what it actually is. And well, if it makes us feel beautiful, even some overpriced things are worth it.
50. Can You Go Out Tonight?
Here's another clear depiction of those days when someone spontaneously asks you, "Can you go out tonight?" and you confidently answer, "Nah, I'm busy."
And while "busy" can be interpreted differently depending on who you are and what you like, there is no doubt that many of us can identify with this feeling. Sometimes staying home is just more appealing.
