Follow three steps behind. 

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 ”  It’s not “male-dominate society ” now and it’s outdated.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.
