The wounded woman emasculates
The wounded woman enters her marriage, often making her new man responsible for the men who have hurt or disappointed her in the past. This woman places an unrealistic level of expectation on a man, she forgets he is flesh and blood. I was this woman. I entered my marriage with an “independent STRONG woman “baby I GOT this, just hold my purse, bravado!” But inside, I was broken. The outside strength was a shield to guard against my deepest fear…I was not worthy of a man who would care for me, love me, protect me. I did not trust God or men to keep their word.
