woman, why do you weep?
In my opinion there is little in life more vulnerable than a man bearing his soul and sharing a part of his life so personal.
Man is in his very nature aloof and secretive, stoic and gleaning information about his childhood or past is quite similar to pulling wisdom teeth. Without Novacain.
But when they are ready, if there is ever a time when you are in the presence of a man and he begins talking to you about things so personal and private and these are things you have never even wondered about or asked about then you are THERE!
We women love to jabber, talk, express our feelings and become annoyed when our men don't feel the same urges. They just aren't made that way.
To listen to a man talk quietly and see the raw emotions from the places of joy or the wreckages of his past emerge in his soul and well up in his eyes can bring you to your knees in agony. You have witnessed a miracle and a blessing as you have seen his soul.
I weep with emotion.
