There is a point of equilibrium between emotions that, when cultivated, results in peaceful relationships. Because of the masculine/feminine bent toward opposite poles in respect to the way we use feelings, rather than feelings themselves, we aren't frequently at that point. And it is because of this "usage" that our communication about how we actually feel breaks down, resulting in strife. When we manipulate others with our feelings rather than conveying our true feelings, we are not telling the truth. There's a big difference between genuine feelings and feelings that are created on purpose, for a reason, even if it's not necessarily consciously. The equilibrium point is reached when we learn to communicate honestly about our true feelings, whether we are female or male.
I've often overheard women express their thoughts, such as "feeling like they want more affection," and expect males to understand what they're saying. What they aren't expressing is that I want more affection. This is what they're saying: I want to feel better, and I believe your actions will help me do so. There will be consequences if you do not carry out such actions. Women think that if they say it frequently enough or loudly enough, men will hear what they have to say in the way they truly mean it, even though this will never happen in the current conflicting paradigm model. What would be more powerful for a powerful woman is to state exactly what they want. If you want a hug, ask for one. If you want a hot kiss, ask for it. There's no getting around it: you have to ask for exactly what you want and then be grateful when you get it!
The issue with women miscommunication is that they have been so well-trained in deception. Men must, but let's start here for the time being. Emotions are frequently used by women to manipulate, dominate, and control situations. Or at the very least, they attempt to use them for that purpose. How did I come to this conclusion? Something else is going on here when a lady who doesn't know me says to me, "Oh, you're simply not in touch with your feelings," and I am a man who is sure in my knowledge that I am very much in touch with how I feel. What's going on is that women aren't allowing themselves to reach a point of equilibrium. They don't allow themselves to let go of those all-too-often false ideas and truly be with themselves and others as they are because they have such a hard-wired notion of "how men are" and "how women are" in their minds. Not as they imagine people to be, but as they truly are. This point would be to see the point of balance between men being in touch with their feelings and women being in touch with their real sentiments when it's right in front of their eyes. Not the deceptive feelings people create because they want something, but because what they're expressing is, in fact, how they feel.
