Are You The Kind Of Woman Men Adore And Never Want To Leave?
I don’t know if you’ve read any of the books by John Gray called, Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus, but they are based on the concept that once upon a time Martians and Venusians met, fell in love, and had happy relationships together because they respected and accepted their differences.
However, they then came to Earth, amnesia set in, and they forgot they were from different planets.
John Gray based his books on successful counselling of couples and individuals, and helps couples communicate so conflict doesn’t raise its ugly head.
Certainly, we don’t think the same, and often women wish they knew what was going on in men’s minds. Here’s a hilarious video by someone who understands men you might like.
Magic Relationship Words
In any relationship, you’ll have your ups and downs though, and I’ll bet you’ve sometimes said something and immediately wished you hadn’t.
Words can hurt and the problem is, they’re not something you can take back.
If you say the wrong thing, or don’t feel you can say what you really want, it can cause a lot of tension.
Even the smallest remark can wreck relationships, and you sometimes end up feeling as if you’re walking on eggshells, don’t you?
I received this some time ago in an e-mail and it’s worth sharing. I don’t know who the author was, but it has a good moral.
There once was a little boy who had a bad temper.
His father gave him a bag of nails and told him that every time he lost his temper, he must hammer a nail into the back of the fence.
The first day the boy had driven 37 nails into the fence.
Over the next few weeks, as he learned to control his anger, the number of nails hammered daily gradually dwindled down.
He discovered it was easier to hold his temper than to drive those nails into the fence.
Finally the day came when the boy didn’t lose his temper at all.
He told his father about it and the father suggested that the boy now pull out one nail for each day that he was able to hold his temper.
The days passed and the young boy was finally able to tell his father that all the nails were gone.
The father took his son by the hand and led him to the fence.
He said, “You have done well, my son, but look at the holes in the fence. The fence will never be the same. When you say things in anger, they leave a scar just like this one. You can put a knife in a man and draw it out. It won’t matter how many times you say I’m sorry, the wound is still there.”
The little boy then understood how powerful his words were.
He looked up at his father and said, “I hope you can forgive me father for the holes I put in you.”
“Of course I can,” said the father.
Good isn’t it?
