If your partner or wife suddenly starts to withdraw or puts an emotional distance between you and her, you better think there is a good chance that she has a reason to do so and that reason has something to do with you.
Many men like to believe that every time their partner or wife becomes rigid and emotionally distant, it is only a manifestation of their “feminine nature”.
It is not uncommon to hear men in these cases resort to statements such as “she is just a woman”.
And affirmations like this are based on the propagation of social ideas that project to all women as emotionally volatile, unstable and unpredictable.
But that is not totally true. Your partner is not acting out of a mythical feminine madness. Your emotional distance could have been caused by you in the following 5 ways:
1. You are not supportive
Supporting her in her career does not mean simply asking how her day went and remaining silent until she has finished speaking. It means committing. If your girl really loves you, she would like to be part of your professional growth and expect the same from you. If she feels that she is not receiving this, it could trigger her mood to retreat into her shell.
2. Do not let her get into your personal problems
Doing this gives your partner a feeling of distrust. When a woman cares about a man, she wants to feel trustworthy with her most intimate concerns and problems. She wants to carry some of her burdens and be her resting place.
The legit women feel useless if you deny them the opportunity to do so and one way to tell you that something is wrong is to make yourself a mummy and be part of this process.
3. You are insensitive
When your partner is depressed or goes through a period of emotional inactivity, stop making the mistake of dismissing it with a hand gesture and that statement ignorantly discarded: “she is only a woman.”
If it is still about this kind of life, then you should really stop wondering why your wife builds a wall between you and her every so often.
4. You do not listen
If you are not a good listener, then, as a man, you do not have much to offer a woman in a relationship.
When a woman can tell you she does not listen, what is the use of continuing to talk with you? And refusing to talk to you is the first sign of emotional closure.
5. Discard your ideas
When she tries to get involved in conversations about her work and her life, she clearly dismisses her ideas. You take advice and information from your friends and family, but not from her.
