No fear some really good stuff is on the way just hang on a few more days. Thanks to MISS (The Disaster) everything has to go through multiple editors and attorneys but nevertheless it will be posted.
Since the beginning of time there has been the: “can’t live with them, can’t live without them” quandary. Especially with divorce rates being as high as they are, we should all take time to learn more about the opposite sex and how we can best care for each other. In Men are from Mars Women are from Venus Chapter 2, John Gray discusses the different ways men and women approach problems. When men have a problem, they want to solve it themselves. When women have a problem, they want to talk about it. What rang most true to me in this chapter is a part where he explains what a man should say to show he is listening. It is dead on. Most of the time, all a man needs to do is nod their head, say I understand, oh man, and do you need a hug. Just the other day I was talking to one of my best friends who happens to be a man. I was telling him how frustrated I was about something at work and he kept interrupting me. Finally I said, “DUDE, will you listen to me!” He said, “I am” However, with him offering his take on it before I could even spit it all out, made me feel like he wasn’t hearing what I was saying. This has got to be the biggest communication roadblock between men and women. What do you think? - Perfect
