As Beyoncé would say, "I ain't sorry." Honesty should always be our best policy, but when we're on our periods we just always want to be blunt. We're feelin' moody not just because it's a Monday morning, and we find ourselves losing patience for people way more than usual. We cry over the simplest things like what soup to make for lunch, and something sweet our friend said. Truth is, when we're PMSing, we'd love to rant all of our feels on social media and post it with one of these honest Instagram captions.
Girls just want to have fun, but once a month, our bodies have a different plan in mind. Being 20-something is already so hard sometimes, and life doesn't stop just because you got your period. Suddenly, you need to find time in your schedule to go and buy tampons, and are wondering if there's technology yet that can make boys experience cramps, too. You really didn't ask for this life, and treat yourself to all of the salty and sweet snacks you can find.
Seriously, it's like that moment in Moana when you find out Te Fiti and Te Ka are the same person. When we're PMSing, it's like our inner lava monster comes out and craves all the soft pretzels and chocolate-covered strawberries in the world. We could probably breathe fire if we tried hard enough, but instead we really just want to snuggle up in some sweatpants with a heating pad and let the period storm pass.
On a brighter note, our periods can be a very good sign and actually means that everything in our bodies is running smoothly. Going through this natural cycle is the worst, but I guess we can kind of feel better knowing it's all for a purpose.
Nowadays, in particular, period culture has become part of certain social conversations. So, being honest about your body is better than ever. These 37 Instagram captions will tell it how it is, because you know you'd love to post something when you're PMSing.
