Can You Be Feminine and Feminist?

Why You’ll Never Succeed Any Other Way

Should you call yourself a feminist?

And what if you also want to wear sparkly necklaces and be womanly while you’re kicking butt in your career? Is that going to make you less competitive in the work world?

In other words, what if you want to be feminine and soft, yet still fulfill your earning and career goals?

Can that be done? And if so, how? What does that even look like?

In my experience, it’s not only possible, it’s the only way to truly succeed–if by succeed, you also include having a gratifying relationship.

I’m gonna assume that’s what you mean, because who doesn’t want that?

Inspire Him to Seek Your Company Because You’re Irresistible

Around here, the TV seemed to be the main problem.

If I could just get rid of the TV, I would get a lot more of my husband’s attention–or so I believed.

Other women report that their husbands play video games incessantly, or work 117 hours a week, or have poker games every night.

7 Steps That Will Make You Super Self-Assured

You’re not the only person who feels insecure, of course.

Everyone does sometimes.

But it’s a worthy goal to want to feel more confident—to want to feel comfortable in your own skin.

Second-guessing what you just said and wishing you’d said something else, and wanting to make yourself disappear gets old and exhausting.

Having anxiety about whether you’re acceptable or lovable sucks up your vitality and takes up the energy you could have been using to do something way more fun and productive.

But it’s hard to know how to get out of the trap of feeling like you’re not good enough, that you’re missing some crucial information that everyone else seems to have, or that you’re just too broken or hopeless to ever feel like you can totally relax.

Becoming more confident will definitely make you more attractive.

Who doesn’t want that?

Fortunately, no matter how messed up you feel or your childhood was, you can become self-possessed and secure.

How to End Hostilities with a Man Who’s Negative, Sullen and Obstinate

If you’re married to someone who is passive-aggressive, then you’re frequently facing resistance to the simplest things.

His negative attitude is obvious, and sometimes he’s hostile for no reason.

When he says he “forgot” to pick up the groceries when he promised he would, you have a hard time believing it was accidental.

He doesn’t come out and say that he’s mad about having to drive the kids around yesterday while you were at your sister’s house.

That would be direct, which is the opposite of passive-aggressive. If he was direct, then you’d be able to communicate about it.

But he’s not, so you have to just guess what the problem is when the tension is so thick that clearly, there IS a problem.

That’s the challenge of living with a passive-aggressive husband.

It doesn’t require him to go to a therapist, read a book or take medicine.

These three simple steps–all within your control–will put an end to your suffering from his passive-aggressive behavior.
