Men are intimidated by me


January 25, 2017

Dear Pastor,

I am educated and easy to talk to, and men are still intimidated by me. I can't pretend. I am a down-to-earth person, so I can't behave as if I'm better than anyone. I started from a very humble beginning.

I think skilled persons are the ones in demand these days, so that is a plus for me. I am more concerned about personality because after the money and the handsome face deteriorates with time, then of course, the personality would still be there.

Men are intimidated because they compare themselves to the females, and they should not do that.


Dear P.,

It is a fact some men are intimidated by educated and successful women, and that is so unfortunate. Some men do not think highly of themselves, and they refuse to allow women to teach them. Those who are willing to be taught by women have done well. Many did not have the opportunity to receive formal education, but because they were mature enough to allow their women to take the lead in certain aspects of their lives, they were able to build strong families.

Intelligent women do not necessarily want to lead men. What they want is for men to recognise that they are partners. They want to be treated as partners and not like second-class citizens at the workplace or in the home.

I am glad that you are doing well as a woman. Be strong.
