Every person has their weak moments and vulnerabilities, times when they need picking up. There’s nothing to be ashamed of either. Asking for help when one needs it, is one of the most honorable things to do.
These are the things that cause women anxiety; the reason is primarily that, undoubtedly it is a very tricky thing to ask for help as a strong independent woman, given the fact that society is already prejudiced against them. Any show of weakness can attract predators.
However, there are things that women want from you, but never have the heart to ask:
1. To celebrate her achievements
It is already a terribly dog-eat-dog world and nobody has the time to sit and laugh about anything anymore. It is even worse for women given how society has only started opening up for them while expecting everything of them. Celebrate her smallest of achievements in your own way.
2. To protect her
Not just from external dangers but from her own demons. Everyone has their own anxieties and insecurities and sometimes it feels great simply to have a pair of arms around.
3. To give her attention
Because society is already heavy-handed in its dismissal of her. As a woman, she faces twice the prejudice already and not to mention possibilities of the new epidemic: sexual harassment.
4. To communicate with her
Because she might just have the piece of essential advice you need.
5. To help her out
The vice versa situation of the thing above. She might need advice or practical assistance from you, but might just be apprehensive to ask for it.
6. To give her the break she thinks she deserves
Because society already makes her work harder to come at par with its standards. It’s twice the shit and half the reward for her outside. It is only natural she wants a break from the routine.
7. Take the first step
It is harder for a woman to own up to the fact that she needs you to take the first step/lead because if she shows a weakness of any kind, she will be decimated. That is just the way it is. Be a lamb and don’t let such a situation arise.
8. To be there for her
Sometimes a hug is all it takes. Or even a shoulder for her to cry on. It is indeed that simple.
9. To be “her person”
To be thoughtful, kind and considerate of her. In short, to be humane to her and not just be the kind of person she meets every day at work.
10. To accept her for what she is
That is, to not be the average superficial douche she has met in the past. To be different. To love her and accept her beauty just the way it is.
