Women can be confusing and ask you to act in what seem like contradictory ways, at the same time. Tobin Zivon talks about how to “please” a woman without becoming a “pleaser” – a man who lacks his own boundaries or spine!
As a woman I humbly understand that women can be confusing.
To be honest, I sometimes confuse myself.
I wish I could be more straightforward and know exactly what I need and say so in a rational way.
I wish I wasn’t prone to burst into tears when I feel disappointed.
I wish the same kind of touch worked for me on Monday as on Thursday.
But with the parts of people we love, we also have to take the parts that are frustrating or confusing.
I am always working on how to be more vulnerable, honest and loving.
And there is a way to navigate a woman’s emotions, needs and truth without seeing it as maddening or losing yourself!
