disrespectful husband quotes

The disrespectful spouse quotes in this post are a call to action.

No woman should feel obligated to stay with a guy because he hasn’t physically abused her (yet). 

If you’re not married to him, you can say, “Stop disrespecting your wife!” though you might not expect much to change.

He may not even see his behavior that way.  Or he may not care. 

But why is he like this?

27 Of The Most Glaring Traits Of A Female Narcissist

Woman yelling, female narcissist

Do you know a woman who is self-absorbed, often cruel, jealous, and critical?

She may be a narcissist.

Female narcissists are often overlooked.

Because they exhibit some of the same behaviors as typical teenage girls, female narcissists can go unnoticed and be passed off for simply being a “mean girl” — or a grown woman.

It’s often assumed that mean girls grow out of their bad behaviors, however, habits like gossiping, excluding other people, and sabotaging relationships can be more common among females with existing narcissistic traits.

Dominant females who are narcissists are almost as threatening as their male counterparts, but females have a certain protection through stereotypes such as “sweet young girl,” a “nurturing mother,” and the “kind little grandma.”

No one thinks the sweet older woman can be vindictive, menacing, and ruthless.

Nor do people expect mothers to be so self-centered that they are willing to abandon or abuse their own children.

The difference between a female and a male narcissist is that females tend to be in competition with other females for superiority, while male narcissists use their charm and appearance to meet their goals.

The truth is, female narcissists never “grow out” of their childhood behaviors.

Instead, they develop more effective aggressive behaviors in their adult years, using their manipulative traits to employ their selfish agendas and to exploit other people.

How To Cope With A Lack Of Empathy From Your Partner or Spouse

Unhappy couple, lack of empathy in a relationship

A lack of empathy is one of the defining characteristics of low emotional intelligence.

To have empathy, you must put yourself in another person’s shoes — to feel what they are feeling and seek to understand their perspective.

You must step outside of your own needs and feelings to be present and engaged with someone else.

Empathy calls for patience, active listening, intimacy, and selflessness.

It requires a generous and giving spirit and a true desire to sit with someone in their most difficult moments or share in their most joyous accomplishments.

Some people are naturally empathetic, but people who lack empathy can learn and reinforce the skills of empathy and compassion.

To do that, we must recognize its value not only in our relationships but also in our personal growth.

Practicing empathy expands our understanding of ourselves and others.

It connects us to the human condition — the suffering, the joys, the sorrows, and the longings we all share. It draws us closer to the people around us and frees us to be vulnerable and authentic with them.

Can A Relationship Survive Without Empathy?

We need to practice empathy in all of our personal and professional relationships, but the one relationship in which empathy is essential is your marriage or love relationship.

Maybe you’ve found yourself thinking, “My husband has empathy for everyone but me,” or “My wife has no empathy.” If you’re feeling these things, your relationship may already be in trouble.

A successful marriage requires a deep and abiding communion and closeness between the two people. Love and intimacy thrive on the empathic connection within the relationship. Without this connection, the relationship will wither and die.
