Have you ever considered that you might might be afraid of women?

Have you ever felt afraid of a woman’s emotions? Or your own?

Do you ever walk on eggshells around women, and do you loathe that?

In this episode Dr. Avrum Weiss and I explore these questions and more to provide useful insights that can make a positive impact on your life.

Dr. Avrum Weiss is a psychotherapist, an award-winning author, and public speaker. His decades-long work on understanding the internal lives of men culminated with his recently published bestseller “Hidden in Plain Sight: How Men’s Fears of Women Shape Their Intimate Relationships. 

When I look back at my life, I was afraid of girls from a young age and that fear continued into my adulthood. Even now, I sometimes feel overwhelmed by the power of women, including my wife. However, I have done personal work to connect with my core as a man and no longer believe that women can subjugate or control me. Despite this, my wife’s emotions can still be overwhelming at times and I still experience some fear around them.

Anyway, I’m excited for you to experience my conversation with Dr. Weiss today. He’s incredibly insightful and brilliant, and has a lot to say to men that can help liberate us – and the women we love – from an ancient and primal fear that probably doesn’t really serve men or women.
