Many times one wonders who a womens Real enemy is : their own gender or the opposite sex . If one doesnt go into a broader context but just see their own household dynamics the answer seems pretty obvious. A womens enemy is another women.
We dont see men being jealous of women , scheming against them but a women scheming against each other. Take for example a mother in law and her daughter in law . The mother in law or in some context the daughter in law, will be the one scheming against each other all in the name of the insecurities that hide within her. Why is it that women hold grudges which don’t seem to end for generations.
For instance if a women went through hardship while being a daughter in law why doesn’t she wish to make her life easier, but instead wants the same kind of hardship on her just so she can feel a sense of ease. One then wonders what is about the Pakistani women or Society which does not seem to know How to let go , and how to mind their own business.
Often the malicious rumors being spread Are not being done by a man but by another women who seems to bare a grudge. While observing both sexes I often feel men are more transparent than women. If u interact with a man , it’s Most likely his true nature will be apparent to you in the first few meetings . But we as women seems to know the art behind hiding our true nature . Often what’s displayed on the surface of a women isn’t what her true nature is and one can think of plenty of instances of this scenario. For instance if your college friend finds out you are hiding something important from her and holds a grudge against you for that very reason , she will make sure to malign your name , display your Secrets and want to ruin your life all the while displaying themselves as besties on the social media platforms and university gatherings . Whereas a man’s friendship with another man is much simpler : if they have some insecurities they would fight with you , take out the anger and then forget . But a women will hold a grudge until her last breath.
After giving this viewpoint a lot of thought I have analyzed one plausible cause of this. As you have often heard the saying “An empty mind is a mind of the devil”. This line seems particularly apt incase of the normal Pakistani housewife whose whole life revolves around her kids. When you donot have any other work to distract you with , gossip, rumors and schemes is all you can devise and if one sees this could be a huge reason of a women being a womens enemy. With men they are so busy managing every other thing that they do it have the time to think of petty issues and make illogical connections and then divulge on it and harbor angry thoughts.
