It’s that time again. Mom Mondays! In this particular segment, my mother gave me this book called The Female Brain which is written by Louann Brizendine, M.D. And let me tell you, as a little spoiler, this book CHANGED MY LIFE. Seriously guys. She needs to teach sex ed in schools and every middle school and high school needs to have this book as required reading. I learned so much about myself, as a female, then I ever did in any health class.

Wow! My mom knocked it out of the park with this book. I seriously have never read a book that has taught me so much about being female. I’m not kidding when I say that everybody of every gender and sex needs to read this book. I will shout from the rooftops of the importance of this book.
As the title suggest, this book is all about the female brain. Starting from in the womb to menopause and everything in between, Louann Brizendine explains exactly what happens to females while going through the different stages of life. She even mentions what boys experience during those times and includes examples from her clients to supplement everything. That made this book a little bit easier to read and it broke up a lot of the science that was involved.
This book has changed me. Had I had this book in highschool it would have changed a lot of things for me. I honestly thought what I went through when my body changed was something I alone was dealing with. Not the case at all. Let me tell you, friends, the relief that flowed through me when I read that part was life changing.
This book has changed my life. I know I’m repeating myself but I can’t help it. I feel so…explained and understanding of myself. I feel like my entire being has been explained. I feel so much better knowing that the changes that happen to me are okay. And I am better prepared for the future changes that will happen. I want everybody to just stop what they are doing and read this book!
