The JOY of Being the Man or Woman You Are
God endowed each of His children with a unique personality and our own generous helping of gender-related qualities. He absolutely loves the resulting handiwork, but WE'RE not so sure. We tend to judge ourselves and others, and therefore withhold the full expression of who we are from the world -- especially our gender gifts. This is a great loss to all; we suffer personal unfulfillment, and our relationships with the opposite sex lose most of the uplifting and healing power of gender-polarity.
The answer is NOT to try to conform to some stereotype of what a man or a woman should be. The answer is to authentically live who we truly ARE -- and part of that is rightly using, not hiding or abusing, our gender-related gifts. see article
