Thank God for this article because it articulated something I have never been able to.
For someone who is so consumed with their emotions, I found. this article to be very enlightening.
I often feel burdened by my emotions and the emotions of others.
Apparently this feeling is shared by other women and many men are unaware of the toll it takes on their friends, girlfriends, wives, and daughters.
“We are told frequently that women are more intuitive, more empathetic, more innately willing and able to offer succor and advice. How convenient that this cultural construct gives men an excuse to be emotionally lazy. How convenient that it casts feelings-based work as “an internal need, an aspiration, supposedly coming from the depths of our female character.”
