Do you know a meaning “follow three steps behind “? This describes positional relation between a Japanese female and a Japanese man and I recognized the real meaning recently.
I’d thought about this as “chastened attitude and back off behind a man. ” It’s not “male-dominate society ” now and it’s outdated. My husband always follow me 😜 I was shocked to know the real meaning.
It meas “Follow three steps behind me and I keep you safe and I protect you whatever happens.
This is a huge misunderstanding and depending on how I look at it 🙂 I feel that’s Samurai sprit in this sentence. The more I can look at and think about positive side, the more I could enjoy my life.
