14 real-talk comics about the struggles women go through on a daily basis.

It ain't easy, girls. It ain't easy — as you can see from these 14 insightful comics.

Christina De Witte was experiencing a lot of typical "girly things," and she thought it would be cool to start drawing some of those funny-cause-they're-true scenarios.

Fast-forward and she's now publishing her comics full-time under the name Chrostin. Get it, girl! She saw a demand for more of her delightful illustrations once people started to notice them and tell her how they relate to them.

"It’s pretty easy to keep these kind of topics alive, because every single day has its own little struggles. So each and every day gives me inspiration!" De Witte says.


Check out 14 of her simple yet insightful comics depicting women in everyday, all too real situations (pretty and not):

1. Things that make you feel confident.

2. And shoes! So much truth, am I right?

3. Because ... Beyoncé.

4. Hey, there's no shame in our sunglasses game.

5. Don't sweat it. The world is our runway every day.

6. A girl always needs her beauty rest.

7. Sometimes there's no in-between. #sorrynotsorry

14. We all have hair goals, and there's no shame in that.

It's not just women who are relating to De Witte's amusing comics, either.

She says she gets messages from male fans, too.

"That's one thing I like about Chrostin. I draw myself as a 'struggling young lady' but no one said these are just exclusively for women!"

Her primary goal with these delightful drawings is to make people laugh, although she admits some of her illustrations do have more meaningful messages behind them than others. Like when it all seems too much and you just want to throw yourself on the ground. Or when you've having a bad day but hope a cute outfit can help you turn that frown upside down.

De Witte's message is simple but powerful. She wants to remind everyone with her comics that it's OK to feel like you're a total mess sometimes. That's something we can all relate to.

Sometimes the smallest gesture can turn your entire day around. You find a $5 bill in the pockets of your jeans. There's no traffic on the way home from work. Or by some divine intervention, you get 11 chicken McNuggets in your 10-piece box.

Of course, if you've ever had such a blessing, you know your first thought is, "Must be some sort of mistake."

But do you return the extra McNugget? Nope. You don't even feel an ounce of guilt for it. You dunk it in barbecue sauce and relish it like a gift from the gods.

A former McDonald's employee in Edmonton, Canada let the world know that sometimes an extra McNugget is not a mistake and he's become a viral hero.

When Iowa Valley Junior-Senior High School principal Janet Behrens observed her students in the cafeteria, she was dismayed to see that they spent more time looking down at their phones than they did looking at and interacting with each other. So last year, she implemented a new policy that's having a big impact.

Children in middle school can be super shallow when it comes to fashion. To be part of the in-crowd, you have to wear the right shoes and brand-name clothing, and listen to the right music.

The sad thing is that kids that age can be so creative, but they're forced into conformity by their peers.

Some people never escape this developmental phase and spend their entire lives wasting their money on material goods and judging those who do not or can not.

They say that kids say the darnedest things, and seriously, they do. Anyone who has spent any significant amount of time with young children knows that sometimes the things they say can blow your mind.

Since teachers spend more time around little kids than anyone else, they are particularly privy to their profound and hilarious thoughts. That's why NYC kindergarten teacher Alyssa Cowit started collecting kid quotes from teachers around the country and sharing them on her Instagram account, Live from Snack Time, as well as her websiteand other social media channels.
