    What women tend to be slave too..

    This past weekend I went on a women's retreat with my church. On the last morning before we left we had another bible study dealing particuraly with issues women face everyday. Coming home I thought about these issues alot. And I realized these aren't anything that just "Christian" women expierence. I think all women tend to at one point or another in thier life.

    here's the list..

    Slave to the need to please.

    Slave to comparison.

    Slave to past expierences

    Slave to sin. (Ok I think here sin can be used in a non religious term, just meaning things we do to ourselves or others that we know is not right)

    So does anyone agree or disagree with what my pea sized brain thought about this?

    Oh and I purposely posted this in a non-religious part of the forum, because I want religioun out the equation!

    Mine, too! I'm missing the "shopping" gene...am I not a "real" woman?

    You've got a good point about "the need to please." Many of us have that one.

    Nope Lulu I hate shopping too. I only like shopping when I'm purchasing gifts for others. I feel guilty if I buy things for me.

    Hi Sheryl,

    I think that women tend to have the need to please more than men, they do tend to compare themselves more to others but this is a trend (at least physically) that men are catching up with. With regards to past experience I would say that that was a cross gender issue. The same with sin or similar.

    Nope, the thought of all those people, jostling for position, slavering over the merchandise...nah, not for me.

    Since I have had children though I do always automatically think of them if I have cash and I'm out shopping, without fail. Steve wouldn't though, it just wouldn't occur to him, not really a selfish thing.

    Oh yes. Once bitten etc. Trust lost etc. Forgive and never forget lol. But aren't all people - men and women a slave to past experiences? We learn from experiences but we do not have to be ruled by them.

    Yep - drink too much - eat the wrong foods - say things about other people behind their backs - etc etc

    You are almost right Sheryl, the only difference is that I think this list can apply to men too!

    Nice thread! Made me use my brain for a change

    Re: What women tend to be slave too..

    Hmmm interesting....
    There is a book I am reading right now darn I can't recall the author, but of course Oprah interviewed this person... the book is
    Disease to Please
    oh yay for google
    http://www.thediseasetoplease.com/
    there is the link

    anyway my point is this woman is calling this a disease, I barely started this book so have hardly any insite into it but.............

    My spidey senses tell me...
    many of us women were raised to nurture and suddenly we find we have become pleasers and slaves of sorts... and have made it our goal to see others happy at all costs to ourselves.....
    Sad really and I know it's terribly common.
