5 Essential Steps to Finding the Right Therapist for Your Needs
Passiveness in relationships is a common issue for many men, but why does it occur? According to a recent article in Psychology Today (link below), there could be several reasons behind this trend:
1. Some men may have learned from childhood to suppress their emotions and avoid confrontation, leading to passive behavior in relationships.
2. Others may fear rejection or abandonment, causing them to avoid expressing their needs and wants.
3. Low self-esteem and a lack of assertiveness can also contribute to passiveness.
Here are some ways to improve relationships:
1. Effective communication
2. Building emotional intelligence
3. Encouraging healthy relationships
It’s important for both partners in a relationship to communicate effectively and for men to work on building their confidence and emotional intelligence.
