174 The Masculine, Feminine Myth

“We must not allow other people’s limited perceptions to define us.”

Virginia Satir

What kind of energy do you give off? Do you find yourself expressing more masculine attributes or feminine?

This concept of masculine and feminine has been around a lot, and we are beginning to see it take hold in the entrepreneurial and small business fields. Someone who is more focused and driven is seen to have stronger masculine traits, while more caring and creative is seen as having more feminine traits. 

Discussing masculine and feminine energies is based on a continuum, yin and yang. People are made up of different traits, and when we say “masculine energy” or “feminine energy” in this context, it does not mean male and female, yet these attributes and expressions are often used in a male/female way. 

In this episode of Difficult Happens, we tackle the concept of masculine and feminine energy and how that impacts your interpersonal and professional relationships.
