Blog #21 Insider Information Into a Man’s Mind/Real Life Solutions Counseling, Inc.
We have already determined that there are many significant differences between men and womens’ brains.
One of the many things my female clients appreciate hearing about is how a man’s perception that he is unable to make his partner happy affects him.
A man is wired to provide for his partner and family and to know that they feel safe and secure.
When a man repeatedly hears his partner complaining about how unhappy she is, he often takes it personally. Yes, I understand that many times he may be contributing to the perceived unhappiness she is experiencing.
A man feels like a failure when hearing his partner is unhappy. Men will often times have the thought/attitude of, “Well, she is obviously miserable so what is the point? I have tried my best and I just can’t seem to make her happy.” This can result in a man “giving up” on trying to please his partner.
The woman complains/nags hoping the man will be motivated to change. Complaining is not at all the way to get a man to change.
Are you stuck in this endless and frustrating cycle?
Call me, let’s chat.
