Men who make us feel insecure and doubtful are men whom we didn't keep away from us long enough for them to value and respect us. In the words of Robert Greene, "proper distance from a woman is needed in order to gain a man's respect". Notice how the men that you have distance between , rather accidental or intentional, usually have the utmost respect for you. Nine out of ten , they are not mistreating you, nor making you feel like shit. No man should have the opportunity to put you down , disrespect you , nor mistreat you and especially not reject you, unless of course you let him into your personal space a little too fast. He shouldn't even be close enough to you, unless he's earned you, in which if he did, he wouldn't be doing those things to begin with. My theory is, men will hurt you! If they are not coming to make you feel good, then they are coming to hurt you! Do not let men get close to you , unless he has earned it. Keep a safe distance, and earn proper treatment. Trust no man!
