Re: I smiled because...

A very good friend sent me this this morning and made me smile.

One Flaw In Women


Women have strengths that amaze men.
They bear hardships and they carry burdens, but they hold happiness, love and joy.
They smile when they want to scream.
They sing when they want to cry.
They cry when they are happy and laugh when they are nervous.
They fight for what they believe in.
They stand up to injustice.
They don't take 'no' for an answer when they believe there is a better solution.
They go without, so their family can have.
They go to the doctor with a frightened friend.
They love unconditionally.
They cry when their children excel and cheer when their friends get awards.
They are happy when they hear about a birth or a wedding.
Their hearts break when a friend dies.
They grieve at the loss of a family member, yet they are strong when they
think there is no strength left.
They know that a hug and a kiss can heal a broken heart.

Women come in all shapes, sizes and colors.
They'll drive, fly, walk, run or e-mail you to show how much they care about you.
The heart of a woman is what makes the world keep turning.
They bring joy, hope and love.
They have the compassion and ideas.
They give moral support to their family and friends.
Women have vital things to say and everything to give.

HOWEVER, IF THERE IS ONE FLAW IN WOMEN,
IT IS THAT THEY FORGET THEIR WORTH
Don't forget to believe in yourselves girls

It might not all be strictly accurate but in essence it is.

I find that most women are incredibly supportive of each other. I think the ones that are nit are the anomalies. And that there's usually something else up with them too.

I wish I could agree but I don't find it's always the case.

I find that women have an inborn instinct to be kind. And I find that many men do too. And I’m happy that I’ve just finished my first alone Christmas tree - somehow always disliked Christmas trees until my little one left home - it was a lovingly made chore on-top of a full career. Now I’m really enjoying it, just for myself.

I find that a lot of women who are addicted to validation from men are less likely to be kind to other women. And those that think we are in some kind of competition based on appearance.

In this moment I'm watching movie Bohemian Rhapsody on TV. The first time I've watched it was in the cinema when there wasn't covid-19.

Yes, they are a PITA. But ultimately that's their problem/issue/ failing.

The Hey Duggee Christmas Episode is pretty great.

I got through all five Die Hard movies with my wife and daughter before Christmas (although, technically, only the first two are Christmas movies ... but the third one is like Christmas!).

To be honest, it's been my experience that it's just a general thing... though most of my female friends have been from the US, so I guess I really wouldn't know. I think some women are competitive toward other women and that manifests as jealousy, resentment, and other strange behavior. The worst is when they first pretend to be your friend.

Well, I tend to avoid those types of women like the plague. If they lack the confidence (the operative word here) to stand on their own merits and need men's validation, then I am not interested.

On another note, I have been an expat for too many years (lol ), and if I meet a woman who asks me what my husband does for a living when I first meet them, it is a red flag for me. I could care less what one's husband/partner does for a living; who are you as a person and what do you bring to the table?
