Making a woman feel appreciated really isn’t as hard as it’s been made out to be. Like men, most Arab women simply need a little affirmation and signs of love once in a while.

<br /> And when you’re stressed out, you can be sure that it will end up affecting almost every aspect of your life. You won’t feel up to enjoying the small things in life, and it feels like the weight of the world is squarely on your shoulders.

For the modern Arab, when you’re expected to do and to be everything—from an obedient and caring son, a loving girlfriend, diligent employee, top-notch student, to a good friend—it gets to be way too much.
