This has been a complaint among men for as long as I can remember. And with the invention of social media and memes the conversation about female indecisiveness has only become more prevalent.
We all know men hate when they have to ask us what we want to eat because we never have a clear answer. They even give us a few options to choose from. All of which never seem desirable to us. What’s a man to do, right?
Well, you know who else hates female indecisiveness? Me!
I hate my inability to make decisions for myself and I will no longer stand for it!
Why is it that on any given day I know exactly what I want to eat, yet when a man is present I can't decide? Allllllll of a sudden I can't make decisions for myself?
I am using the whole “What do you want to eat” thing as an example but it affects so many other areas of my life.
I will no longer stand in uncertainty. For example, I have wasted plenty of time trying to figure out what it is a man wanted from me. Waiting to hear him say he wanted to be in a relationship or he didn’t. When the hell did it become just his choice alone! I don’t need to wait for a man to tell me what he wants I can pretty much figure that out by the way he treats me, and if he isn’t being clear about what he wants guess what? I can decide for myself. I don’t need to hound anyone to ask them how they feel or what they want to do.
If they aren’t making me happy I already know what I want to do.
I don’t need someone to tell me that my ideas are good or show me the path to success in order for me to move forward.
Know what you want and do everything in your power to get it!
Go after that career you want even if your family tells you there’s no money in it. If your boss doesn’t believe in your ideas, go ahead and start your own business. Go back to school ….or don’t, but decide for yourself. Stop acting like you don’t know what you want or what to do. You do know!
Women are strong, we are in no way helpless. We should be celebrated in all aspects of life. Not just as mothers and homemakers but as businesswomen and bosses.
We find it difficult to make choices for ourselves because we aren’t celebrated when we do. Most of our mothers struggle just the same so there aren’t many women we know personally that can pave the way. This is why we must pave our own way.
So the next time a man asks you what you want to eat, stand up tall, hold your head up high and make a damn choice! Even if you're uncertain, say it like you’ve been thinking about it for years. He just might think “Well here is a woman who knows exactly what she wants!
