A woman’s brain chemistry is wired different to a man’s.
It’s just how nature works and when you look at it from a big picture perspective, you will see that the differences in men and women are a good thing for this world and also for you as an individual man.
The Female Effect
Generally speaking, men don’t place as much importance on the things that women tend to get emotional about.
For example: A man might see that someone is feeling a painful emotion, but he won’t feel an instinctive need to comfort that person like a woman would.
As long as he is achieving his goals or getting what he wants, he can turn a blind eye and not care.
I’m talking in general terms here of course.
Many men do think, feel and behave like women do.
That’s not what I’m talking about here though.
I’m talking about the general differences between masculine men (i.e. men who are not like women) and feminine women.
So, back to the example…
While a typical man won’t really care about the painful emotions of other people, a woman will tend to feel sorry for the person and want to do something about it.
Of course, I am saying “generally speaking” here because there are some mean, heartless women out there who don’t care about anyone.
However, for the most part, what you will find is that women are much more compassionate and caring than most men.
It’s partly because of so many women saying, “Hey, that’s not fair!” about so many things that the modern world has become so tolerant and free.
Before women had a voice in society, men ruled the world and essentially killed anyone who didn’t believe in what they did.
Of course, there have always been nice, loving, caring, feeling men who have fought for change, tolerance and love.
However, for the most part, when it was just men ruling the world, there was less compassion, tolerance and love for fellow human beings.
If you look back in history, you will see that men led the way to protest about race-mixing, men beat up homosexuals and men attacked and even killed people of different races.
Of course, some women got involved and supported those men, but in almost all cases, women never lead the way to violence and intolerance.
Generally speaking, women are wired differently than men and as a result, they look at things from a different perspective and tend to think, feel, behave and act in a different way.
Women do get caught up in the bad things that men do though.
Think of what happened with Nazi Germany.
Women supported what was going on.
Yet, they didn’t initiate it.
Women tend to go along with what men are doing, unless women have a respected voice in society.
Think about how women helped to change the workplace.
Before women entered the workforce, almost all managers and bosses were men and they tended to run their companies like machines.
Employees essentially had no rights and the bosses and managers didn’t care if things weren’t fair for them.
As long as too many employees didn’t die on the job, everything was fine.
Yet, when women joined the workforce and became respected, they started fighting for fairness, care, love, respect and a more family-like environment.
That doesn’t mean that women are better than men.
All the changes that women have help make over the past 200 years is what I call The Female Effect on society.
It’s a powerful thing and a lot of it has to do with the fact that woman’s brain is wired differently to a man.
She has a different brain chemistry, which causes her to think, feel, behave and act differently than a man.
Without The Female Effect, life would be a lot colder, meaner and more ruthless.
This doesn’t mean that women are better than men though.
It just means that women are just as important as men in this world.
Men have got the world to a certain point, women joined in as leaders and we are now developing the world together.
Men have always been important and still are.
For example: If it weren’t for men, you wouldn’t be reading this article now on the computer or handheld device that you’re looking at.
Women didn’t invent computers, invent cars and planes or build huge international businesses.
Men did all that and now women are able to join in and add in The Female Effect.
Men and women are just as important as each other and we both have a key role to play in the world and in our personal relationships.
For example: As a man, you must ensure that you allow your woman to think, behave and act like a feminine woman.
She might be used to acting in a more manly way to do well in her career or deal with modern life, but when in a romantic, sexual relationship, she still wants a man who has the ability to make her feel like a real woman (i.e. feminine, girly, free to be emotional).
So, bringing it all back to title of this article, “Why are women so emotional?” let’s get something very clear right now…
Always look at women as being different to men.
Women are not men.
Many modern women may act like men these days, but they are not men.
Women are still women and to have a successful relationship with a woman, you need to remember that and apply it.
For example: Some guys get annoyed at a woman’s emotional outbursts and demand that she essentially think, feel, behave and act more like him (i.e. a man).
That’s not what a woman wants.
A woman wants to feel free to be a woman (i.e. feminine, girly, emotional) rather than having to take on a more masculine energy and approach in her relationship with a guy.
So, in terms of a woman being emotional, you just have to accept that she will have her emotional outbursts at times because that is her nature.
Women are different to men.
She won’t be exactly like you and that is okay.
Don’t try to make her be like you.
She is not going to be a man for you.
Accept the emotional outbursts as part of her femininity.
The Emotional Outburst
If you’ve been asking yourself lately, “Why are women so emotional?” then you’ve probably been on the receiving end of an emotional outburst from a woman that just doesn’t seem to make any sense to you.
A woman getting emotional around a man is often her way of testing you and forcing you to grow, change and evolve rather than just stay where you are right now.
Everything in the universe is in a constant state of change, even if that change happens over long periods of time.
The way that life is designed is that it forces us to do something, rather than to stagnate and be the same thing forever.
You either go with the flow or the flow eats you up and spits you out.
It’s a woman’s nature to not let men get complacent.
For example: One minute a woman will say, “I love you…I just want to sit on the couch and watch TV with you forever” and a day or two later, she will say, “I’m bored…why do you want to watch so much TV? You’re so lazy! I hate my life.”
To a man, it doesn’t make much sense why a woman would change her mind so easily to be so happy one minute and so bored the next.
Yet, that is the natural programming of women.
Women are designed to be restless, which is why religious monks have typically always been men.
Of course, Catholic nuns are an exception, but that was something that was forced on women in earlier times, rather than it being something they all aspired to.
I know this personally because my mother was sent away to be a nun in Ireland when she was in her teens.
She hated it and was always rebelling against the system.
She was restless and didn’t want to live a life of quiet servitude.
She wanted to be free to be a woman, a mother and everything else that came along with that.
If you look at religious monks around the world, you will see that throughout history, it has pretty much always been men doing it.
The majority of women couldn’t think of anything worse than having to sit along with their thoughts forever.
On the other hand, many men loved to be alone with their thoughts to ponder the deeper and more complicated side to life.
It was a dignified life to live as a man.
Since women were so oppressed and lacked rights, they often submitted to a life of servitude as a nun and enjoyed it.
However, it was never a case of women leading humanity into celibacy or social isolation.
That was The Male Effect on society back then.
Not anymore of course.
Today’s world is less about philosophy and more about doing.
There are so many things to do, so many possibilities and so many options that being alone and devoting oneself to a religion just doesn’t happen as much in the developed world anymore.
One of the biggest enjoyments of men is fixing problems.
It’s a rewarding process for a man to see a problem, work on it and then fix it.
Hence why pretty much everything has been invented by men and why most men work in fixer jobs (e.g. plumber, mechanic, engineer).
Of course, feminist women reading this won’t like what I am saying because they tend to want to be just like men.
However, it’s just how life is.
Women are different to men.
Women are not men.
Some women are like men and some women want to be men, but women are women.
In terms of men being the inventors and fixers (up until recently, where women have gotten involved and become leaders and changers), it’s just how nature has played out.
Throughout history and even to this day, the majority of women just want to use the fixed thing or the invented technology, rather than fixing it or creating it themselves.
Generally speaking, women don’t want to spend a lot of time thinking about solutions, which is why approximately 80% of engineers are men.
The 20% of women who are engineers either have more of a masculine mind (e.g. butch lesbian, transgender), or they were raised by a father who never had any sons and showed more love for his daughter when she thought, behaved and acted like a guy.
Feminist women won’t like reading that, but it’s just how things work.
Most women don’t want to think, feel, behave and act like men.
Most women just want to be women and in many cases, that involves a woman being more emotional and emotionally sensitive than a man.
Modern women may act like they are as tough and emotionally bulletproof as masculine men, but most of them aren’t.
- Women are reported to experience depression at twice the rate of men in the USA.
- In the UK, 40% of women will require treatment for depression at some point in their life compared to only 10% of men. In other words, women are more depressed than men.
- Women are twice as likely to experience anxiety compared to men.
- 60% of the people who have OCD (Obsessive Compulsive Disorders) and phobias are women.
- Most women are insecure about their physical appearance. According to a global study conducted by Dove cosmetics, 96% of women don’t consider themselves to be beautiful.
The above statistics show that although women are now an active part of leading modern society, they aren’t as strong as they seem to be on the surface.
So, it’s only natural that a woman will tend to be more emotional than a man.
Many women act like they are as strong as men, but the statistics don’t lie.
Women are more emotionally sensitive than men and as a result, they are more emotional than men (generally speaking of course).
These days, a lot of guys have adopted a more feminine approach to life and as a result, they are finding it difficult to attract women into a relationship or keep a woman in a relationship.
