He wants your confidence in him again. This is very difficult to ask for, but it’s obvious when he doesn’t get it, but it’s also very easy to show your confidence in him and here’s how it works.
Confidence in him is as simple as giving him a task and then letting him complete the task for you but oftentimes what will happen is there will be the type of woman who says would you take me on a date, and would you drive me? Let’s go to this restaurant and then, while they’re driving there she’s telling him the best way to go and she’s instructing him on where to park.
Or she says: hey honey, will you wash the dishes and as he’s washing the dishes and putting them in the dishwasher. She’s correcting him and saying no, the glass goes here and put the dish in that way. She’s micromanaging the situation.
When that happens, he feels like you don’t trust him to actually provide for you, but allowing him to accomplish the task actually sitting back and letting him serve you shows that you have faith in his abilities.
And showing faith in his abilities is showing faith in the man himself.
Your man has a deep desire for respect. When I traveled 12,000 miles around the United States interviewing America’s greatest marriages, respect was the number one principle that all these couples talked about. Yet respect can also be a little bit ambiguous.
How do we know that we’re respecting each other?
Respect shows up in the little things it shows up in the way we listen to one another. It shows up in the way we show up on time and keep an agreement for when we’re gonna meet one another.
It shows up in the way we honor each other’s differences and make it okay that we don’t have to like the same things or have the same opinions all the time, and it shows up in how we are courteous to one another and saying please.
The fact of her appreciating those little things shows respect it shows appreciation and it’s a big deal and it goes a long way.
So think about what are the ways that you can show respect to your man, because it’s a big thing that he wants that he will probably never ask for so there.
