Most of us men probably won’t be quick to admit that we need affirmation. A lot of times our ego and pride get in the way of owning up to the reality of certain things. But today, let’s set pride/ego aside and let’s be honest: real men need affirmation from their wife. And guess what? There’s absolutely nothing wrong with that. When a man is working hard, accomplishes something great or is doing a good job at something — the first person he wants to hear it from is his wife. Not his mom, dad, siblings or even boss. He wants to hear it from the woman he loves. Why? Because he wants to know that his wife see’s and knows that he’s doing a good job. When a man hears affirmation from his wife, it increases the value in what he’s doing and drives him to do even better. Ladies, if your husband is a great man to you and your kids, let him know. If he works hard everyday to bring home a check, let him know every now and then. If he’s done anything worth mention, affirm him for it. It keeps us going. It really does. Believe me. You don’t have to only affirm him with the work he does and roles he plays. Let your man know that he looks good. You like that suit he has on? Tell him no man can wear it better than him. Did he just get a fresh haircut? Trust me, if you let him know how great you think he looks — that $15-$20 he spent at the barbershop will seem like a great investment to him.
So how do you know when your man isn’t getting enough affirmation?
Simple. If you start hearing him affirming himself — that’s the sure sign that you either aren’t affirming him at all or aren’t affirming him enough. If he starts to proclaim how hard of a worker he is or starts fishing for compliments from you — then please take heed. That’s our way of saying, “I need some affirmation, please.”
Just as women need to hear her man speak positively of her — a man also needs his wife to affirm him. Ladies, don’t deem affirmation as a task. Instead, deem it as an opportunity to boost your man’s confidence and self value. To know that your man needs your positive words, should make you feel special. He depends on you, the woman he loves, to help make him feel like a great man.
Ladies, affirm your man today.
