17 Things Any Girl With A Small Bladder Will Understand

You know that holding your pee is no way to live.

For anyone who has a small bladder you understand that you live your life differently than people with normal sized bladders. Unlike your friends, you most likely hate road trips or traveling in general because it means you may not have access to a bathroom when you need one. You're always aware of where the nearest bathroom is and you almost never forget to use the bathroom before you leave the house or before any event. And while people may judge you for how often you use the bathroom, you know that holding your pee is no way to live.

1. Road trips are a nightmare.

The thought of being stuck in a car for hours and possibly having to go to the bathroom but none are available is the things your nightmares are made of.

2. You make sure to always go to the bathroom before you leave the house.

It doesn't matter if you're only leaving for five minutes or five hours, you're using that bathroom.

3. And you always remember to go to the bathroom before bed.

You never forget to go to the bathroom before bed because you know if you don't, then you'll wake up in the middle of the night.

4. Naturally, the first thing you do in the morning is go to the bathroom.

And even though you went before bed, running to the bathroom is the first thing you do in the morning.

5. You're practically tethered to the bathroom when drinking at the bar.

Going out and drinking is fun and awful at the same time because while you're enjoying yourself you also have to stay as close to the bathroom as possible.

6. And you want to die if there's a long line.

And if there's a long line for the bathroom, then you pretty much want to die.

7. You hate it when someone asks, "Didn't you just go to the bathroom?"

It's your pet peeve when someone asks, "Didn't you just go to the bathroom?" First of all, rude and second of all, yes, but I have to go again.

8. You've gone to the bathroom, left and then immediately had to go to the bathroom again.

There have been times where you went to the bathroom, finished and then immediately realized you had to pee again.

9. You don't understand how people find the sound of running water relaxing.

You can't seem to comprehend how some people find the sound of running water relaxing because it just makes you have to go to the bathroom.

10. You find it rude when people go to the bathroom without asking you to join.

What if I had to go to the bathroom? Also it's just girl code to ask anyone else if they need to go.

11. Sitting through a TV show or movie and having to pee is the worst.

Having to sit through a show or movie is terrible because you don't want to miss anything, but you also don't want to pee your pants.

12. You absolutely hate having to use the bathroom on an airplane or bus.

But you power through your disgust because you have to.

13. You've mastered going to the bathroom in a public restroom with as little touching as possible.

Public restrooms can be absolutely nasty so you've mastered the art of going to the bathroom with touching as little as possible, I'm talking about "the squat."

14. You spend more money on toilet paper than your friends.

Because you're constantly going to the bathroom you spend more money on toilet paper than your friends and honestly, it can sometimes get a little embarrassing.

15. You always make sure to go to the bathroom before a concert.

Going to the bathroom before a concert starts is a must because you would die inside if you missed part of the show.

16. You're petrified of how much you're going to have to pee when you're pregnant.

You already pee enough as is so just thinking about how much you're going to be in the bathroom when pregnant is enough to make you question having children.

17. Too many times you've painted your nails and immediately realized you have to go to the bathroom.

And far too often you'll paint your nails and then only when they're drying do you realize you have to go to the bathroom. So you either risk ruining your manicure, but relieve yourself, or you hold it and suffer, but have a nice manicure.

To The Boy Who Will Love Me Next

If you can't understand these few things, leave before things get too involved

To the boy that will love me next, I need you to know and understand things about me and my past. The things I have been though not only have shaped the person I’ve become, but also sometimes controls my life. In the past I’ve been used, abused, and taken for granted, and I want something real this time. The guys before you were just boys; they didn’t know how to treat me until it was too late. They didn’t understand how to love me, until I broke my own heart. Before you truly decide to love me I want you to understand these things.

When I tell you something, please listen.

I’m my own person, I want to be loved a certain way. If I ask you to come over and watch movies with me please do it, if I ask for you to leave me alone for a few hours because it’s a girl’s night please do it. I don’t just say things to hear my own voice, I say things to you because it’s important to my life and the way I want to be loved. I’m not a needy person when it comes to being loved and cared for, but I do ask for you to do the small things that I am say.

Forgive my past.

My past is not a pretty brick road, it is a highway that has a bunch of potholes and cracks in it. I have a lot of baggage, and most of it you won’t understand. But don’t let my past decided whether you want to love me or not. My past has helped form who I am today, but it does not define who I am. My past experiences might try and make an appearance every once in a while, but I will not go back to that person I once was, I will not return to all that hurt I once went though. When I say those things, I’m telling the complete and honest truth. I relive my past every day, somethings haunt me and somethings are good reminds. But for you to love me, I need you to accept my past, present and future.

I’m just another bro to the other guys.

I have always hung out with boys, I don’t fit in with the girl groups. I have 10 close girlfriends, but the majority of my friends are guy, but don’t let this scare you. If I wanted to be with one of my guy friends I would already be with him, and if you haven’t noticed I don’t want them because I’m with you. I will not lose my friendships with all my guy friends to be able to stay with you. I will not cut off ties because you don’t like my guy friends. I have lost too many buddies because of my ex-boyfriends and I promised myself I wouldn’t do that again. If you don’t like how many guy friends I have you can leave now. Don’t bother trying to date me if you can accept the fact I’m just another bro.

I might be a badass, but I actually have a big heart.

To a lot of people I come off to be a very crazy and wild girl. I will agree I can be crazy and wild, but I’m more than that. I’m independent, caring, responsible, understanding, forgiving, and so such more type of woman. Many people think that I’m a badass because I don’t take any negatively from anyone. Just like we learned when we were younger, “if you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say it at all.” Most people can’t do that in today’s world, so I stick up for myself and my friends. I don’t care what anyone thinks about me, or their option on how I live my life. The only thing I care about is being able to make myself happy. Even though I’m an independent woman, understand that I do have a big heart. Honesty when I truly care for someone I will do just about anything they ask, but don’t take advantage of this. Once you take advantage of this part of me, all respect will be lost for you.

I’m hard to love.

Sometimes I want to be cuddle and get attention, and sometimes I don’t want you to talk to me for a couple hours. Sometimes I want you to take me out for a nice meal, but sometimes I want a home cooked meal. Every day is different for me, sometimes I change my mind every hour. My mood swings are terrible on certain days, and on those days you should probably just ignore me. I’m not easy to love, so you’ll either be willing to find a way to love me, or you’ll walk out like so many others have.

I’m scared.

I’m scared to love someone again. I’ve been hurt, heartbroken, and beat to the ground in my past relationships. I want to believe you are different, I want to hope things will truly work out, but every relationship has always ended up the same way. I’m scared to trust someone, put my whole heart into them, just to be left and heartbroken again. I sick and tired of putting my whole body and soul into someone for them to just leave when it is convenient for them. If you want to love me, understand it won’t be easy for me to love you back.

When “I’m done.”

When I say “I’m done” I honestly don’t mean that I’m done. When I say that it means I need and want you to fight for me, show me why you want to be with me. I need you to prove that I’m worth it and there’s no one else but me. If I was truly done, I would just walk away, and not come back. So if I ever tell you, “I’m done,” tell me all the reasons why I’m truly not done.

For the boy who will love me next, the work is cut out for you, you just have to be willing to do it. I’m not like other girls, I am my own person, and I will need to be treated as such. For the boy that will love me next, don’t bother with me unless you really want to be with me. I don’t have time to waste on you if you aren’t going to try and make something out of us. To the boy who will love me next, the last thing I would like to say is good luck, I have faith in you.
