Women Encourage Men

Book cover for Games Ego Plays


Women Need to Learn to Encourage Distressed Men

  • Ego will help you to recognize, remove, and replace your ego: a.k.a. self-esteem.

How Women Should Talk to Distressed Men

  • When a man is emotional and talking about a problem, he is not talking about his emotions or even the problem.
  • Distressed men want to know how to overcome a specific problem.
  • Distressed men want to know that they can overcome a specific problem.
  • Distressed men want to be encouraged to tackle the problem head-on.
  • Distressed men need an infusion of confidence to overcome the problem they are distressed about.

Encouragement, Support, & Confidence

  • Women who encourage men to solve problems are loved by men.
  • Women who support men in their trials are loved by men.
  • Women who fill men with confidence that they can overcome a new problem are loved by men.
  • Listen and hear the need for encouragement and support and then fulfill that need.

What Is the Real Issue?

  • The real issue for distressed men is believing that they can overcome a problem.
  • Encourage the man that he has overcome problems in the past, maybe even worse problems.
  • Encourage the man that he has resources that he can use to problem-solve.
  • Encourage the man that he has friends and mentors who can help him to solve the problem.
  • Encourage the man that you believe in him and support him in his efforts.
  • Stand by your man. Support your man. Be there for him.

Experiment with Encouragement & Support

  • Practice encouraging and supporting the distressed men in your life and see if it does not work better than what you were doing.
  • Understand that we have focused on dealing with distressed men and women differently; however, both methods will help with both at times.
