The Shrink is BACK in!

Ok my turn to analyze you.

You are reading this for one of two reasons: You are crazy or you think I am.
I am also psychic so I know a lot about you: You are male, or perhaps female.
You are in a relationship or you are happy, one of you is both.
if you are crazy, female and happy, and reading this then my analysis that follows will surely offend or attack your senses due to its simplicity and lack of subtlety. So be it.
I am not a doctor, and I do not even have a white coat, yet i have some experience with life these fifty years.
If I am crazy, you are male and happily deluded into thinking you are happy, you will need to read elsewhere for psychological help. My insights today are for the weaker sex. ( ouch, put down that rolling pin!)
According to a source I have near the white house, who wishes to remain anonymous there are at least two different types of women:
there is the lying, controlling, deceiving, back stabbing, don't get in my way type, only out for herself. She tries to manipulate and control her man but is hard at work convincing the world that she is really loving her man. ( harsh- but thankfully NOT my words)
my source alows that there is also a woman who is "gracious, fun-loving, nurturing and caring, who knows in her heart that she is precious to only one and does not have to prove it to anyone. She lives by example."
I admit I would like to see more of these types in the world.

I have yet to say I agree with this dichotomy, even if I have seen it around me. Every time we try to boil down human relationships we lose something in the cooking process, but we may gain as well.
Here is where I am at this moment: truth or dare time!
I do not like being manipulated, yet have been many times in the past.
I do not like being controlled, but have given up control too often through my own lack of initiative and internal weakness. Today I am choosing to be responsible for my own life, health and wholeness.
Manipulation and control are not tools given to help woman overcome their "beneath men- natural status" It seems it is a trick of Satan himself and all his minions to create chaos in the human race and family so that he could work his evil on the children of these unions. When men are not a strong presence in the home the child is more likely to go astray ( which of you would like to disagree with that one statement from personal experience?) - I am not allowing men to be abusive or dictatorial, cruel or aloof, they need to be strong in a positive way, helpful to their families, and caring about ONLY what brings about good in the lives they are entrusted to guard.

I will take a whole new post to work on my men theory, but there you have a 'tidbit from the trenches' from the sicko doctor to the unstars. Me myself and I in my attic room - bloggin away on a Saturday.
Thanks for reading, double for your comments!
Link to me and I will do a somersault!
I am working today on a stone wall nearby and musing on the nature of man and woman.

Michele sent me to your mountain, David.

Can I nominate Elizabeth Dole for one of those roles? I know Nancy Reagan and Senator Clinton come to most people's minds but I think Dole is the true natural for the lying and manipulative type. On the other hand, E. Dole doesn't make policy based on astrology...

I eagerly await your treatise on men, David. In the meantime, good luck with the stone wall you'll be working on.

"beneath men- natural status" sigh.

i in no way condone manipulative controlling behaviour in women either. having grown up being treated like muck by a manipulative, cruel, sick and controlling MAN, and then having the misfortune to marry another, i will make it my lifes work to show my female children that any sort of behaviour between the sexes which assumes one has a divine right to be above the other is not only silly, but intrinsically evil.

and incidentally, i survived all the evil in my own life without ever seeing men as being 'below' me. weaker sex? not on your life!

i will teach them to treat others as they would wish to be treated themselves. using truth, kindness and the wonderful power of their legs to walk away if anyone tries to put them down in any way.

looking forward to the other side too.

What if the woman only fits part of one of the two? It seems I am the second, but without a "good man". Someday perhaps. hugggs

phoenix said...

Thank you David! You brought me another smile today. :)

OldOldLady Of The Hills said...

IU'm here from Michele tonight David, and I agree 100% with KEDA and KENJU, too!

Darius said...

Men and women are a lot a like, only different - that's my take...

Windfall Woman said...

I think men and women are very complex. A great post for generating much comment; however, a bit simplistic I think.

phoenix said...

Are you ok hun?

David said...

so we have Utenzi nominating Liddy Dole for the first female dominatrix of the United states, Keda giving me a piece of her mind, which I believe she can spare, and sighing, which is acceptable here.
Keju and Old lady of the hills, I did not ask you to demaonstarte anything to me, I was quoting a source, and I may have got it wrong. " if I am good to my man, it will be evident, not needingexternal proof"
Irish gal, I think you are crazy, too. That is why we read each others blogs!
Darius is a genius
Windfall, you caught me being quick and dirty with my analysis, I promise to do better on men, like RIGHT now.
Phoenix - hugs to you also, and I am A- ok really bust with beautiful work - and eyeing a SAILBOAT that needs love and someone to sail it. Peace! to all
