Why We Need To Praise The Good Guys

Why We Need To Praise The Good Guys

Sharing on Facebook, Infertility struggles, Trying to conceive

Lately new allegations about sexual misconduct by male celebrities or politicians come out almost every week. I am glad that so many brave women are speaking out – and hope the #metoo and #timesup revolution continues to build steam and creates permanent social change. But I have to admit, it’s really depressing each time I find out that another person I admired or respected has a dark side. That’s why I think it might help to spend some time praising the good guys – while we are taking down the “bad”.

I think it might help to spend some time praising the good guys – while we are taking down the “bad”

  • There are men who always treat women with honor and respect – at work and at home.
  • There are men who not only listen, they really hear you.
  • There are men who always support your (sometimes crazy) dreams.
  • There are men who try to make you laugh, even when you feel like crying.
  • There are men who will wrap their arms around you and whisper comforting words when you are weeping in bed after a devastating miscarriage.
  • There are men who will firmly hold your trembling hand during a medical procedure – even when he’s squeamish.
  • There are men who think you’re most beautiful without any makeup on.
  • There are men who listen to you vent – even when they’d rather watch a show or go to sleep.
  • There are men who come home everyday and say how happy they are to see you.
  • There are men who take on the responsibility of being a role model to your nieces and your sons with honor and pride.
Sometimes we might need to remind ourselves that there are still lots of good men out there. I married one and plan to raise two more. I’m eternally grateful that I didn’t settle – and waited to find my good guy. If you haven’t found yours – keep looking – he (or she) is out there.              (Happy Anniversary D)

Dana is an award-winning documentary television producer and the Editor-In-Chief of TalkingFertility.com. Dana struggled with infertility for years before she was ultimately blessed with two sons. While trying to conceive she searched online for support, advice, forums and the latest fertility news. It didn't exist all in one place, so Dana created this virtual community and resource to serve people who are trying to conceive.
