To have what it takes

In letzter Zeit habe ich viel über Frauen geschrieben, besondere Dinge an ihr und auch wie sie eine Lady sein kann.
Und das ist auch etwas, dass mir sehr auf dem Herzen liegt...

Doch ich denke, dass es nun an der Zeit ist etwas über die Männer zu sagen, sie zu ermutigen, ihnen ein paar Worte mitzugeben. Doch ich bin kein Mann und ich denke, dass wahre Ermutigung von Mann zu Mann kommen soll. Deshalb möchte ich John Eldredge zitieren aus Wild at heart... also Männer, das ist für Euch... es ist nur der Anfang... ich werde bestimmt bald wider zitieren:

"Am man does not go to a woman to get his strength; he goes to her to offer it. You do not need the woman for you to become a great man, and as a great man you do not need the woman"

"We are made to depend on ‘God; we are made for union with him and nothing about us works right without it. As C. S. Lewis wrote, “A car is made to run on gasoline, and it would not run properly on anything else. Now god designed the human machine to run on himself. He himself is the fuel our spirits were designed to burn, or the food our spirits were designed to feed on. There is no other."

"I mean you stop looking to her to validate you, stop trying to make her come through for you, stop trying to get your answer from her. For some men, this may mean disappointing her. If you’ve been a passive man, tiptoeing around your wife for years, never doing anything to rock the boat, then it’s time to rock it. Stand up to her; get her mad at you. For those of you violent men (including achievers), it means you stop abusing her. You release her as the object of your anger because you release her as the one who was supposed to make you a man"
