10 Things Women Taught Me.
While reflecting on my last podcast, I realized that the truth of my dating history was poorly presented. I spoke a lot of the “drama” in some relationships, but left out the overwhelming goodness that was consistent in all of them.
It’s safe to say that most relationships have drama. It would probably be more complete of my history to say that I was dramatic, and as I grew, my relationships with women grew less dramatic, and more fruitful.
I began to think more deeply about what I’d learned along the way, and it occurred to me that if I was the student learning, then the women I dated had been the teachers...every one at the right place, at the right time.
So, here are some of the lessons I learned. Each lesson was either told to me directly, or demonstrated to me in their actions. Certain ideas I can attribute to one woman, others to many. This is beginning to sound like I dated a lot of women, but I’m 41, so do the math :)
