So, ladies, it's time to stop being a mommy!
Men will begin to take responsibility only when no one else does it for them.
Most likely, he is so emasculated that he has neither the strength nor the desire to return power to his hands.
Maybe he is so used that you dictate his every step, that every problem leaves him in bewilderment: he looks at you, confused, waiting for what decision you will take.
And then you turn to him, take a significant pause and take control of the situation, just smiling and saying: “I don't know, but I'm sure you can handle it yourself.". And that's all - leave everything as it is.
We must resist the desire to "help".
If he asks for your help, politely refuse and report your full confidence in his ability to solve a specific problem.
And he will start to make decisions himself, he will begin to command, take the reins in his hands, he will become more active. And even if he makes mistakes or makes wrong decisions from your point of view, let him grow in this new role for him.
The more independence and power he has, the more confident he becomes and the better he will feel.
Let me assure you that as soon as he begins to reap the positive fruits of this role of the “real man”, he will like it and will be uncomfortable in his earlier passive role to which he has become accustomed.
You will begin to hear things that you have never heard from him, for example: “Don't tell me what to do” or “Just let me decide everything, okay?”.
