With father’s day just around the corner, I know it’s going to be tempting to buy your man that set of BBQ grilling utensils or that expensive bottle of whiskey, but I want you to consider something that he will enjoy immensely more than any of those traditional gifts.
Instead of buying him something “traditionally masculine”, would you be open to committing to truly honoring his masculinity in how you interact with him?
We men are not complicated creatures – we are very simple.
We feel most loved when we are not criticized.
We feel most loved when we are appreciated and affirmed.
We feel very loved through touch.
We equate feeling respected with feeling loved.
We deeply crave our wives to love us for what we do well.
And we’re tired of the world telling us that we’re doing most everything wrong, and that if we just acted more like you, we would be doing things right.
Men and women are different, and that’s wonderful.
Let’s celebrate our differences instead of trying to make us the same creatures.
If you really love your man (which I know you do), commit to interacting with him in a way that really shows him how much you value him.
This is a gift to him that is immeasurable in value and will make his heart truly sing on Father’s Day..
