A Lady = Handle With Care
God created women, with a label all over them saying: “HANDLE WITH CARE”… Men can rarely (if ever) see or read that, yet they know it exists, they just can’t read it, it’s simply not in their systems, their knowledge about it though, gets some to try to act accordingly, as much as their memory serves them to remember that women were created different than men… no matter how sensitive a man is, no matter how nice, well educated and gentle he is, he needs to have his memory there to remind him of the “handle with care” label. Then it becomes a habit to practice, until it is mastered.
A woman was created by God as a gift to her man (the one with whom she is destined, since she was 4 months old in her mom’s womb, to spend her life with). She comes as a beautifully wrapped gift, with delicate wrapping and pink ribbons. A lot of women seem to be very strong, independent and way much more responsible than men, hmmm, well, when it comes to responsibility women do assume higher sense of responsibility than men in life, in a lot of cases and situations (not generalizing by all means), but I believe that “handle with care” has a LOT of meanings; I believe that every woman deserves to be treated with love, respect, taken care of, handled with a lot of care and sensitivity.
The worst feeling is when she feels she is being taken for granted cause she loves so much or gives so much or being always there (ok, so I guess this one goes for all human kind, not just women)… The example that just jumped into my mind now is: MOMS! And how we all tend to take them for granted, and what a horrible feeling it is, that we all reject, yet true moms don’t really reject it (at least they don’t show they do), and they carry on giving, loving unconditionally and being there all the time for all…
When you have a good hearted person, who willingly gives and loves you unconditionally, who’s always there for you, and you take them for granted, or they feel that you are taking them for granted they would be very hurt, and some people, the extremely sensitive kind, when hurt, they simply walk away… A lot of times, men just cannot understand why women are hurt or why they cry or or or… etc. Well, have you EVER heard the saying: “Women were created to be loved, not to be understood” I would add and to be taken care of, loved and respected, cause I am starting to really believe that men, no matter how hard they try, will never be able to completely figure a woman out, so you’d rather treat her with respect, love and take care of her, try to embrace her and her needs as that’s the best thing you can do for her. Trying to understand her completely is a lot of work and effort and probably no ROI!! (not return on investment, investment here is the time and effort, why did I use a business term?! Men’s language u may say!!).
And every lady is unique, God created every human as unique… unique finger prints, eye prints, voice prints… etc. Yours MUST be the one and most important for you, and to show her love, it is not enough to say it… I find nothing more expressive that a quote from “The Little Prince” that says:“You’re beautiful, but you’re empty…One couldn’t die for you. Of course, an ordinary passerby would think my rose looked just like you. But my rose, all on her own, is more important than all of you together, since she’s the one I’ve watered. Since she’s the one I put under glass, since she’s the one I sheltered behind the screen. Since she’s the one for whom I killed the caterpillars (except the two or three butterflies). Since she’s the one I listened to when she complained, or when she boasted, or even sometimes when she said nothing at all. Since she’s my rose.” And only when you take care of your rose, oh I mean your lady, like the little prince took care of his rose, would you deserve to call her “mine” other than that, if you can’t handle a gift you were given like the little prince handled his rose, then you do not deserve that gift, the gift is not yours to call her mine…
And by the way, The Little Prince never understood his rose… he just cared for her, loved her, respected her feelings and took very good care of her in all his actions, not just his words….
