Ok, I should admit, we are, as woman, is one of God’s creature that sometimes very stubborn. With so many emotions that we have, woman can be aggressive or either melancholic sometimes without certain reasons.
Indeed actually, woman is a meek figure that trying to be strong. Don’t slap me because I said so. It’s true that we want the equal treatment between man and woman. We want that emancipation. But actually, it can not hide our meek figure, also we want to be treated equally as man being treated. Why do we ask for it? Because we experience so many unfair situation in the name because we are woman. Woman could be possibly meek, but in urgency situation, woman can be very strong that may not see as in her outside appearance.
Woman is God’s creation that created with full of meekness, full of attention and carefully, it may make woman become a perfectionist person, we want everything runs perfectly, details and those efforts make us seem so demanding.
Behind all those nagging, quibbling, statement and many words out from our mouth, woman love the peacefulness. A quiet moment without words that make us know that we are being loved. Woman indeed can be a fire, frequently can be snow and ice, then turns unexpectedly become fresh winds in your life.
Woman is an unique creatures. Every woman has different personality. There is some who is easy to be hurt, strong as an iron, smooth and easy to break, cheery up and love to be free, many also like to be silent in the corner, enjoying silent moment without any words or seem like introvert. There’s nothing wrong with those personality. Those all, make each women are different. But, with all those characteristic woman has, how do you treat a woman?
Honestly to say, woman demands for treated well, because we love to be the center of attention by ones that we love. We also naturally like to watch and care to ones we love. Woman love to cuddle, because we easy to hug someone, when we see ones need it. Woman mostly talk active because we expect communication can break the ice between. Woman might seen so strong, asking for same position, same right, don’t want to be beating to the floor, and wish to always do something, but indeed woman is a creature that need to be hugged, care for, love, as all woman want to be understandable.
But wait, it’s not always in our side that need to be considered, even instinctively, woman tends to give more attention to those who important in their life. Same happens to man, man also wants to get attention. But the left brain woman has, leads to the big effect why woman is more emotionally rather than man. Woman tends to be more meek and sensitive to the situation surround her.
In the beginning of woman creation, it is stated in Genesis book, how God took the ribs of Adam for create another human to be his pair in this world. In the Genesis 2 : 18, “Then the Lord God said, “It is not good for the man to live alone. I will make a suitable companion to help him (Good News Translation).” Continues on Genesis 2 : 20-23, “So the man named all the birds and all the animals; but not one of them was a suitable companion to help him. Then the Lord God made the man fall into a deep sleep and while he was sleeping, he took out one of the man’s ribs and closed up the flesh. He formed a woman out of the rib and brought her to him. Then the man said,
“At last, here is one of my own kind— Bone taken from my bone, and flesh from my flesh. ‘Woman’ is her name because she was taken out of man.”
If you take attention to it, ask yourself, why the ribs? Why not taken from other parts of Adam’s body? A rib’s picturing the strength of man himself. In science, it is explained that ribs have vital function in human’s body. It can protects heart and the lungs from shaking, protects the bounce, spleen and kidney, also helps the respiratory. Now you see, how important the role of ribs, don’t you?
Taken from the ribs that positioned at the side also not coincidentally happens. The beginning purpose of woman creation is to be suitable companion for man, for being friend, equal helper. Equal means same position, not less, not more. Regarding to that purpose, it was not feasible to assume that woman is lower than man, also treat woman as man’s servant. The beginning purpose of woman’s creation is really beautiful indeed. She was not created from his head to be superior or from his feet to serve him, but from his side.
Even though many men probably say that they can not understand woman. Lots of joke that saying woman is very difficult to be understand no matter how hard man’s trying to understand woman. But now, let me tell you an important secret; “If you treat them well, they will treat you well too, even better, they will give you theirloyalty, faithfulness, submission, love, caring, and mostly, their heart”.
Women is created to be love and loved, just do it well, treat them with respect. In Psalm 128, it is stated that as fresh growing vineyard, that the woman is. She clings to the vine and tightly hold to the ground she’s believing. When she is comfort with what she holds, then she will become a very sweet wine and give pleasure to her master. Don’t take them for granted. Treat them with respect, and they will love you back with all their heart and soul, no matter what kind of women you meet, because there’s always a meek side of woman in every of us.
