This article, What A Woman Really Wants Isn’t Your Money, really struck a chord with me as I totally agree with what he has to say. Ladies, if you feel the same way as I do, then be sure to show this to your men. Men, if you are reading this already, take note!
This is just a snippit from the article. Be sure to read the whole thing to really get what he’s saying.
‘A modern woman doesn’t need me for my money or my resources. What she needs is my full, embodied masculine presence. She needs to know I’m actually here, that I see and feel her deeply, and that I’m not going anywhere…There remains an inordinate amount of social pressure on men to be capable of providing tangible resources in exchange for a woman’s company. The ability to make things happen in the world is easily measured by dollars and cars and houses and things, which in turn remains presumed evidence of a man’s masculine prowess and vitality. But none of that is a measure of his heart. Most any modern woman—even one who energizes a lot of masculine energy in her life—yearns to know her partner cherishes her and will always show up for her. She wants to know he won’t check out and leave, which many men do even when we stay in the room.’
The gift of presence from my husband is the best present he can give me. That presence that lets me feel like I’m really being listened to, really being heard, really being appreciated and really being acknowledged. Is it just me or do you feel the same way?
