What do women find as the most stressful in their lives?
Apart from moving house and giving birth what is most stressful for women throughout their lives?
Men? Just a wild guess. You'd know more about it than I would.
For me, it is always most stressful during a family crisis, whether that is due to a child having a serious illness or accident, or a grown child having financial issues or just having a hard time finding a job.
Some women find "cleaning" as the most stressful task throughout their lives.
I'm sure it depends on the woman, her socioeconomic situation, and her role within the family. For me, the most stressful by far is finances, but I'm also the "bread earner" and money manager for the family. In more traditional family units, this might be seen as more of a man's stress point. I'm also blessed with healthy -- if challenging and precocious -- children and now a relatively healthy husband, so I don't have the stress of dealing with special needs or mounting medical bills. I also have a husband who shoulders most of the cleaning and cooking workload, and who is an equal partner in raising the children -- perhaps one of these would be a major stress point for other women.
This is an easy question to answer. In my experience women find men as the most stressful thing in their lives, at least most women do.
For me I think it is safety. I deal with the stress of living by myself, walking by myself, having to be aware when I am out at a party, having to be conscious of what I'm wearing, dealing with cat calls or inappropriate comments making me feel unsafe. Knowing that there are just some things I am not physically strong enough to do (fight off a dog, for example). So I'd say the stress of the different types of predators out in the world is very stressful. I suffer from PTSD and have had violent encounters with men so unfortunately, my safety has become almost reflex to for me to be constantly considering (should I get off at this bus stop? is it too dark? should I talk to my friend on the phone while I'm walking? I better get my keys out before I'm at my door. I better not part way out in the middle of nowhere, etc).
