Why Do Women Test Men? (Part Eleven)

Wow, what a journey we've had. You all are just sitting back and having me do all the talking. That is dangerous. Your focus is tempting me to share more from my personal experience. You do know most of all I have shared, so far, are things I have not only read in books. I have lived, smelt, tasted, touched, and felt them. That is where my confidence originates.

I have been officially teaching now for at least the last thirty (30) years. Those who have passed through my tutorship can testify of one thing: I never run from a good question. My life is an open book. Every event of my life is a teaching opportunity. I might not be able to freely share about another person, but if it only concerns my life, there is nothing that cannot be shared.

As I write, let me make a quick confession. I happen to be one of those men who have confused a lot of sisters as to where I stand - platonic or romantic relationship. This has not been intentional, but incidental. For a while, growing up, all I had were girls around me - one before and two after. There is a nine (9) years gap between me and my first junior brother. So, I grew up with a platonic affinity toward the opposite sex.

It was easier for me to make a platonic friendship with a female than with a male. I had more close female friends than I had male friends. Again, this was not planned, I was simply a slave of the unconscious. To quote my foremost psychoanalyst, Carl Gustav Jung, “Until you make the unconscious conscious, it will direct your life and you will call it fate.”

Today, I am gaining mastery over myself, so I know better. I have no regrets about any of the awesome platonic friendships I have enjoyed in the course of my 54 going to 55 years pilgrimage. And, I believe none of my platonic friends does. As is apparent, I love and enjoy life, and I brought that to every single one of my platonic relationships. We all enjoyed each other's company. So, the only reason for mentioning it is for the intent of learning, with no regrets whatsoever.

Well, I am at that pause point again. Need to pause to hear back from you. Feel free to talk to me. I can do without needing to use my psyche powers. You know I am psychic. Right? I read minds. Selah.

The Saint.
