“Women like silent men. They think they’re listening.”
“A quiet man is a thinking man. A quiet woman is usually mad.”
“A woman marries a man thinking he will change but he doesn’t. A man marries a woman expecting she won’t change but she does.”
“A married man should forget his mistakes. There is no use in two people remembering the same thing.”
“I never knew what hard work was until I tried to please a woman.”
“Getting in an argument with a woman is like being arrested because anything you say can and will be used against you.”
“Men socialise by insulting each other but they don’t really mean it. Women socialise by complimenting each other but they don’t really mean it either.”
Funny jokes, right?
The thing is, though, that behind these jokes is a lot of frustration, a lot of hurt and a lot of escalation of conflicts. Not just for women who feel unheard, but for those on “the receiving end” of the communication.
Since there is pretty much no natural difference in how women and men communicate, we know that these are inherited from society, from the models that all of us have seen growing up.
In many ways, this is great news because it means that we can change these things and turn the jokes around.
Feminine Expression should not be something we joke about, it should be something we can count on to be effective and kind at the same time. Feminine Expression should not be a liability, it should be one of our biggest assets.
FREE WORKSHOP ON FEMININE EXPRESSION
This is why I have tied up with Dr Sarita Dhankani, a homoeopathic doctor and holistic healer, to bring you an online workshop during which we will focus on Feminine Expression.
This WOMEN-ONLY WORKSHOP will bring together Sarita’s experience as a holistic healer and mine as an emotional communication coach to give you ways in which you can effectively transform the way you communicate.
The 90 min workshop is entirely FREE and will take place on Zoom.
It is a space where you can be yourself, share or just observe, that will enable you to awaken the power of effective expression.
This workshop is for you if:
You feel frustrated that people don’t listen, even if it is for their own good.
You sometimes feel that you are unable to express who you really are, and that people don't know the real you.
You feel that you don't always get back as much as you give.
You feel you carry the weight of the world and that it can be isolating.
You want to be more than a daughter/ sister / wife / daughter in law?
You feel you could do and be so much more in your life if you were able to improve your communication skills and express yourself more effectively.
If you want to change things for the better.
During the 90 min workshop we will work on:
1. Understanding your overpowering emotion
2. Acknowledging the unresolved emotions and conflicts
3. Setting Healthy Boundaries
4. Breaking unhealthy patterns
5. Speaking your truth
6. Addressing Communication Blocks and improving communication
7. Emotion Management
8. Changing your energetic vibration
