Until we understand the real differences in what compels our
behavior, especially under stress, we'll keep bringing out the
worst in each other. And never experience the real beauty of both
men and women. - Alison Armstrong

Power Quotes From The
What Women Don't Know About Men
"Women assume that men are doing everything from a position of
power and that they're abusing that power. But women don't know how
much men experience being at the effect of us, how much men
actually do for us, and how much a man will do to make a woman
happy. A man is miserable if he can't make a woman happy. If she's
not happy, then he thinks that he's not good enough and he takes it
extremely personally. Men need to realize that 95% of a woman being
happy is up to her; it's not up to them." - Alison
The Hierarchy Of Male Instincts
"I have lived through many eras as a woman and having studied
men. I have witnessed the era of 'emotionally unavailable men,'
'unhealthy men,' and now we're in the era of narcissists. But we
have to hold up now; narcissism is what you get accused of when you
have all of your attention on yourself and you don't care about
providing for others but that can also be explained by a hierarchy
of instincts which goes procreate, protect, and then provide.
Neither can a man or woman provide when they experience being under
attack nor when they think they have to protect. So in 2020, men
are having a difficult time providing for women because they're in
protect mode with the threat of COVID-19, our economy, and our
wellbeing. If a man is not providing, I tell women, 'Just look
around; what is he protecting you from? What is the threat he
perceives and what is he protecting you from?" - Alison
How We Can Win In Love
"I'm always teaching women, instead of asking, 'Does he love
me?' ask 'How does he love me?' Instead of asking, 'Does he support
me?' ask 'How does he support me?' You will live a completely
different life if you're looking for how the thing you want is
happening instead of checking off 'Yes' or 'No.' If we're looking
for 'How' then we can see it in a rainbow of expressions instead of
'Does he or doesn't he?' and it also allows us to build on
something in the relationship, create awareness for what we love
about each other, and let them know how else they can love us in
different ways." - Alison Armstrong
