A Simple Guide to a Woman’s Emotions

25 Jun

A reader recently asked for a Simple Guide to a woman’s emotions.  After 13 years of marriage, I do not consider myself an expert in any way, but it did get me thinking…

File:Serious woman.jpgWhen she is tired… she wants loved.

When she is angry…she wants loved.

When she gets that look on her face… she wants loved.

When she is scared… she wants loved.

When she is anxious… she wants loved.

When she is confused… she wants loved.

When she is sad… she wants loved.

When she is lonely…she wants loved.

When she is frustrated… she wants loved.

When she is bored… she wants loved.

When she is grouchy… she wants loved.

Do I need to go on?

The feeling of being loved melts away so many other emotions.

Sometimes we make women’s emotions seem a lot more difficult than they are.  Women are not alien life forms that we have nothing in common with, but humans with whom we share the same emotional spectrum.  While our emotions can be complex and frequently change, love is the best response.

The real question is, “What should we do in order for our spouse to feel loved?”  This can sometimes be confusing.  Do they want to talk, or would they prefer silence?  Do they want to be touched, or left alone?  Do they want advice (Which is almost never!), or do they want someone to listen?  Ask yourself, what is the most loving thing that I can do right now?

Finding the answer to this question takes knowing your partner, and listening to them.  We need to do not what we would want done to us in that situation, but what we feel they would enjoy.

Do not be a student of a woman’s emotions (if possible), but an expert on how to respond to her emotions.
