“I CARE ABOUT YOUR FEELINGS.“
My partner once texted me those words shortly after an argument.
When I saw her text, my first thought was …
“Why? … I don’t even care about my feelings. … Anyway, everything is fine, I’ll be fine.”
As I watched myself dismiss my own feelings (I wasn’t really “fine”), I had a profound insight about how the “shallow masculine” program running in us all – men AND women – that teaches us to deny feelings, both in ourselves and in our partners … destroys relationships!
I share that insight in the video.
Do you see how “denying feelings” has affected your relationship(s)?
Please let me know in the comments below.
P.S. Also, please forgive the mustache. It was just a … brief phase … I went through (tragically).
