IWEIGH-029-20201019-BusyPhillips-ACv01-DYN.mp3   JAMEELA JAMIL [00:00:00] Hello and welcome to another episode of “I Weigh” with Jameela Jamil. I, as always, hope you’re well, wouldn’t it be amazing if one of these times I’m just like, I hope you’re shit. I hate you. But no, I hope you’re well and I, I am OK. Had a bit of an odd stressful emotional week, just not only because of what’s going on in the world, but also just some personal frustrations with being a woman. I, I found myself yesterday morning having a big old cry, which I never do because I’m English and also just a very damaged robot. But I had a big old cry for almost an hour about just how much I hate being a woman sometimes. Obviously, that’s just a passing moment and not one I encourage because I love women. I think women are magical. But also I think it’s OK to talk about. I think we should be able to talk about it. But sometimes it just gets too much.
