There’s nothing as annoying as a nagging man; be it a colleague, a friend or a passersby. The feeling is often similar.
The worst part of it is when you live under the same roof with that
kind of man.
The Bible says it’s better to live on the roof top than with a nagging woman. However, it didn’t specify what to do when the man, the supposed head of the family turns out to be the ‘Nagger’.
Should she also pack up and live on the roof top?
There are many reasons why a man may choose to nag in his own house, rather than seeing to his God assigned duties and ‘enforcing’ law and order.
Some may be emotional, psychological or even spiritual:
1. Insecurity: This may be one of the main reasons why some men nag. It seems to be a means to voice the inner turmoil. They may be afraid of their future or not been able to meet up with people’s expectations.
2. Low self-esteem: Generally, people who don’t feel good about themselves tend to look for other things to fill the gap. A nagging man is often one who finds fault with every thing around him. Usual and normal things in the family like the sound of his playing children suddenly irritate him and he tends to transfer his anger to his wife, in form of endless and tiring talks.
3. Fear of the unknown: Excessive fear or worry about things, real or imaginary may also contribute in the making of a nagging man. The fact that he’s not certain of his future may lead him to relieve his anxiety through unnecessary lengthy brawls.
What are other causes of nagging in men? Do you know of any solution?
