yesterday a friend of mine gave me three handwritten pages. She said that the message of her open letter would fit the content of my blog. I happily agreed on translating and posting the letter. So here we go, the first post written by someone else than me.
P.S. Thank you very much, my friend!
„THE WOMAN AT HIS SIDE“
It all begins with the origin of our world, the origin of our existence. God created Adam, the first human being, a man in the likeness of God.
Adam could not find a counterpart in the wildlife and so God made Adam fall asleep to remove one oh his rips to create Eva. She was on a par with Adam but still subordinate. However, most people don’t know that Eva was not the first woman at Adam’s side. The old testament bequeathed the story of a figure, Lilith. Half woman and half snake.
Adam and Lilith were fully equal, hence she understood herself as a free being to whom subordination was unnatural. Their relationship was doomed.
Until these days those are the two categories of women that exist in our societies. Every man must choose between an Eva and a Lilith to be accompanied on his way. If he chooses Eva he most likely will end up being called old-fashioned with views from past times. In the case of Lilith he can be prophesied to have a life full of constant power struggle.
FROM THE EQUALITY OF WOMEN RESULTS THE SUBORDINATION OF MEN
We (women) are raised with the idea that we can achieve everything we want. We are given „wisdoms“ such as „dont let a man tell you what to do, be independent and strong“, „what men can do, we can do too“. But nobody asks women if they want to „can“. Society is obsessed with the idea of equality that women are ready to give up everything just to hold on men. History, however, teaches us that men prefer to reign than to be reigned.
I am a supporter of the traditional role allocation. That doesn’t mean though that I am not strong and independent. I just don’t want to have to be. Marriage cant work if both partners try to obtain the role of the boss and it wont work if the fair sex achieves the role of the boss.
DONT BE A WOMAN THAT NEEDS A MAN BUT BE A WOMAN THAT IS NEEDED BY A MAN
There must be a strong woman with every man. But you shouldn’t emasculate a man by controlling and giving him orders. Women’s role surely doesn’t solely consist of household and kids.
She must become his support, his confidant and his lover, the person who encourages and gives him power to take care and to protect his family.
She is the woman at his side.
