[Say It!] Women Are Complicated… Or Are They?
By Iram Wyne
I’ve wanted to write something for quite some time now, but couldn’t find the right words to pen my thoughts. So I asked a couple of friends for assistance and one of them said “write about women, I bet you won’t be able to complete a book in a hundred years!”
Being a woman, yes, I can define the fair sex, but then, some might consider it as defensive of me. With thoughts such as these, a multitude of questions rose in my mind, including, “What makes a man think that women are complicated?”
I try to be unbiased and see both sides of the picture and it makes me ponder upon the fact… Does man think?
Are daughters complicated?
Since they are the sweetest of God’s creation, I assume the answer would be No.
Is a mother complicated?
She is kind and caring and a million other things that words can’t do justice to, hence again I assume the answer would be No.
Surely a female colleague at work must be?
No, she is a professional and is only doing her job.
A sister perhaps…
No way! She may be annoying at times, but you know she’d love her brother despite anything!
So who is complicated then, a girlfriend or a wife?
Hummmm… I stop and think.
The answer is yes.
Why? Because these are relationships, where a woman isn’t the only one involved. Just as it takes two to Tango, it takes the co-operation of both the male and the female to make a relationship a successful one. That led me to conclude how women ought not to be characterized as ‘complicated’ without a reason.
