The age-old ritual of women being the ones sitting at home and taking care of the household chores alone have come to an end. Women in this century have turned into unbelievably amazing multitaskers overdoing men’s efforts to serve as the breadwinners of the family. They are into every field be it a construction site requiring intense, heavy physical work or top-notch MNCs dealing with tricky situations wherein a split second is all they have to pronounce their decision.
Men are definitely an integral part of women’s lives but they do not hold complete control. Women want men, just like men do, to support them when they deal with a myriad of taxing situations on a day-to-day basis. They want men to be partners and not dictators of their lives.
A man can mean a world to a woman, she may love him more than anyone else, but she would want him to be someone who can tag along with her and make an effort to see the world from her perspective too, rather than forcing her to follow his footsteps.
Women love independence, positivity, and freedom. They appreciate constructive criticism and not a constant blame game. They are amused by the challenges their partners can throw at them instead of shoving them off to be a weaker section. It’s hard to gain a woman’s trust and affection; but if you have done so, she will make every effort to prove that; so that is all is that required of a man.
Some encouragement, support, undeterred trust and a heart full of love – you’ve got her as your best mate for a lifetime!
If you can’t give that, watch her handle every difficulty single-handedly and give you a cold smile when you try to belittle her. Women wanting men is never equivalent to women needing men.
Take the examples of the Prime Ministers of Sri Lanka, Sirimavo Bandaranaike, or India, Indira Gandhi, or that of Pakistan, Benazir Bhutto – all of them were the first woman to be elected as PMs in their respective countries and have brought in major revolution and massive changes in their country’s overall development.
Be it in the fashion industry, the beverage industry, health and fitness or the film industry, there is no dearth of powerful women whose contribution have brought them at par with men.
Women like Mother Teresa (India and Yugoslavia) and Malala Yousafzai (Pakistan) have been Nobel Laureates; Neela Vaswani is a proud Indian-American to have grabbed the 2015 Grammy award; Kiran Desai (India), Arundhati Roy (India) are recipients of Man Booker prize; Indian born Kalpana Chawla and Sunita Williams raised to glory as astronauts; young and dynamic actresses such as Priyanka Chopra , Aishwarya Rai have carved a niche in global cinema and paved way for a better Bollywood-Hollywood relationship, thus creating a new arena for experimentative and entertaining cinema.
Women want a hand to hold on to, a shoulder to rest upon and patience in their partners to see them soar high and reach the pinnacle of success. Just like the famous saying, behind every man’s success, there is a woman, same is the case with women, too.
So dear men, make your woman want you and wish for your presence in their lives. They will not need you as they can tread every onerous path by themselves and still be successful.
