I think you can inspire her through bonding. Like going to the spa together get facials etc. Lol at first she might be like no thanks.
Ease her into it. Having a gentle & supportive nature helps tremendously. Good luck with this.
Lol I was kinda of a Tom boy growing up the outdoors was my friend. Haha but I definitely have a gentle side. And am protective of innocence people/animals/the environment.
Maybe past trauma could be factor for her unfortunately. Or a upbringing. I think every women has this beautiful gentle side. It’s really nice seeing it.
