Recently I’ve been thinking about how women and men communicate with each other. Being in a “newish" relationship, I often wonder how much I should share and how much I should keep to myself. Do women question relationships way too often instead of just letting them happen as they will happen anyway? Do we ruin relationships by analyzing them too much?
Let’s be honest, men for the most part, hate to talk about their feelings. In my experience when a man likes me, he shows me, but he just doesn’t talk about it. Women on the other hand, seem to love to talk about their feelings...pretty much all of the time. We love to analyze, and question, and predict the future, and basically drive ourselves nuts. I’ve never thought of myself as an over analyzer, but here I am over analyzing what seems like all of the time lately.
As I’ve gotten older, I’ve tried to let go of the “what-ifs” and just enjoy what’s happening in the now. I was doing great for a long time, but recently I’ve reverted backwards a bit. I think I lost some of my confidence and for the first time in a long time I felt insecure.
I had to take a moment this morning to remind myself how awesome I am. Now that my self-confidence has returned, I realized that I don’t need to keep my feelings a secret, but I also don’t need to think about them or share them all the time either. What will be, will be.
Letting go of unnecessary anxiety...and, done!
