Yeah, Yeah, Yeah, we get it, you're a big strong man. Now stop your stupid looking chest puffing and treat the woman you pledged your life to with respect!
This last week, I have spoken to several people about bullying and outright abuse that has been happening in relationships around me. It makes me sad, and angry, and frustrated.
Sad that these women (I am not letting women that bully their husbands off the hook here, they just all happen to be women that I know) believe they deserve to be treated this way. Angry that the men that are supposed to be taking care of them are failing so miserably and frustrated because I remember believing in that misconception and I know that right now, none of them are at a point of strength that they are ready to do something about it.
So I decided to write this post to those women in my life that are being bullied and lied to by the one person that should be swimming through shark infested waters to bring them an ice cold Pepsi.
Here are some of the lies I hear you believing, and the truth you should see behind them.
