It's very true that we are the protectors of men's hearts. There is something I want to share with you all. I'm sorry if this sounds more like a counseling session, but I think it needs to be said. It's so true that we carry a lot; perhaps even more than most of us realize. I've learned in my life that men are much more emotionally fragile, and can suffer much worse damage to their hearts. We are actually stronger than them in this way. I've found that too many women forget their beauty and role and become very hurtful and cold. They play games not realizing that the damage they do may be irreversible by the man without years of pain. If there is one thing in this world I can't handle it is to see a man cry, simply because I can feel how much pain is in his heart. I've seen them very tortured, yet by society's standard, trying very hard to hide behind a masculine or macho front to not look weak. No man should ever be thought of as weak because he is able to express emotion or is more in tune with them, quite the opposite. There's good reason why we are here to protect their hearts. We can cry and let it all show and heal from it, whereas they often can't due to society. They hold it in, causing much deeper damage. Just to throw into the pot here, please don't withhold you-know-what! Ever! I'm going to tell you something you may or may not agree with. Men have a hard time with emotions, and often use intimacy as a way of showing their love and affection. It validates them in completely different ways from us. When we withhold it, or turn it down, you are turning down his love, too. If need be, tell him you aren't turning down his love or a cozy snuggle, just the intimate relations itself. Men in relationships are many times more likely to commit suicide than women; sad, isn't it? As well as being an advocate for abused women, I have a mission to teach as many women as I can what really goes on in a man's mind and heart; all this hurt needs to stop! Each and every day I remind myself: UNCONDITIONAL LOVE: WE ARE ONE!! Are you following me here, ladies? Good! And so we carry the Flame and protect the Heart at all cost!!
Love, Light, and Blessings, Brenda
