|McCallum House 1882. Mendocino, CA|
A woman is like a house. She might be a little messy or perfectly neat, but different people look at a house in different ways.
Someone who is looking to buy a house looks regards it with care and respect, wondering what it would be like to abide in this house. They inspect each room. However, not all buyers are qualified!
|Albert Brown house 1880. Mendocino, CA|
A real estate agent wants to sell it.
A person driving through the neighborhood only gives it a cursory glance on the way to somewhere else. It's just a building when you're in a hurry.
A thief wants to take from the contents of the house and looks to see how he can break in and what he can take.
A gardener or a painter wants to tend to the house and make it look nice.

Friends come over to the house see how you are doing.
When someone comes to the door, a woman must talk to the person and figure out what their intentions at the door. Some of these people will be turned away at the door.
Some of these people will be allowed to enter the house - to the common rooms. Some might be invited to stay to eat in the dining room.
Very few are allowed upstairs to where the bedrooms are.
We've all invited people over who didn't seem to know what their boundaries were. Some tried to get into more rooms than they were invited to. It's happened to everyone. Some people even steal when invited to a home. Such a person is not invited to return.

I hope this helps you women to understand that it is not their fault that many people, sometimes the wrong people, are attracted to you. It's not you. It's just that if you are attractive in some way, you will also be attractive to bad people. You can't help that. But you can help what rooms in your life you invite them to.
Guard your house like you guard your heart. Even an old house deserves to be treated well.
