A Toast to the Ladies!

Received a forwarded email (no, not from J) reminding me that today is International Women's Day! The global theme for this year is "Inspiring Potential". As for the guys, you might be interested to know about the following truth about the ladies...

Common (mis)Belief:
She’ll never be satisfied!
The Truth:
Women are always looking for ways to make things better. Don’t take her suggestions as complaints or criticisms, but as her desire to make the relationship or situation the best that it can be.

Common (mis)Belief:
A strong, confident woman doesn't need a man to take care of her.
The Truth:
Everyone loves to be taken care of and to feel needed. Even if a woman can fix things around the house or change the oil in her car, she will still ask for your help so she can feel your strength, support and protection. Don’t ever stop asking, “What can I do for you?” because it shows her that you care.

Common (mis)Belief:
Women only want to control men!
The Truth:
It’s not about control; it’s about love. When a woman sees a man hurting, struggling or overwhelmed, her goal is to help, not control. Let her give you a helping hand.

Common (mis)Belief:
Keeping a woman requires a lot of hard work, time and money!
The Truth:
A serious relationship requires time and effort to cultivate it. You shouldn’t look at it as a burden. Your wife or girlfriend will reciprocate the effort you put into it.

Common (mis)Belief:
You can't lie to women
The Truth:
Women are extremely capable of picking up moods and attitudes and can easily read body language and facial expressions. Although you may think that you have gotten away with a great lie, she is either letting it slide because she wants to keep the peace, or she is lying to herself because she’s afraid of the truth.

Common (mis)Belief:
Jealous and possessiveness are a part of being woman.
The Truth:
Women are protective of what belongs to them. They protect the things they value, especially when it comes to relationships. It’s not that she doesn’t trust you; she is guarding the relationship. You are too precious to her for her to allow anything bad to happen.

Common (mis)Belief:
Women are emotional!
The Truth:
Women don’t hide their feelings.They articulate what’s going on in their minds. There’s nothing wrong with emotions—we all have them. Being in touch with their emotions causes women to be sensitive and caring, and that’s why men love them.

This is dedicated to my wife and all women out there!
Happy Women's Day!
