I wonder what is the root of the lack of communication that men and women suffer from and have suffered from since the beginning of time? I know our minds work in polar opposite ways for the most part but to me there seems to be a lack of logic on one side or the other depending on the person. Or an alternative conclusion could be a power trip type of thing where neither party wants to be wrong so they make up this random series of thoughts that somehow connects an ignorant conclusion to a fairly basic issue, causing them to actually believe this fairytale could indeed be a legitimate conclusion.
I’m not the rocket scientist here but this life-long battle has to stop somewhere. We can’t continue to live like this as a people. It brings unnecessary drama to any type of relationship between a man and a woman whether it be a platonic friendship or a marriage. When you really take a step back and look at the arguments that you’ve had with your significant others, 9 times out of 10 it stems from simple miscommunication that escaladed into yelling and screaming over who said what, who’s not listening, who doesn’t care because they don’t answer a question the way you wanted them too.. its really all quite juvenile.
When have we become so competitive to where being wrong about something is the ultimate loss? For example my mother and step father argue just about EVERY day over countless pointless issues that randomly come up in conversation. My step father thinks he’s right about everything as most men do, but he will disagree with something as simple as “coconut milk is made from actual coconuts” just because and then when they go to the store and buy coconut milk and he sees the ingredient he’ll go on a rant on how things have changed over the years and how coconut milk wasn’t made from coconuts “back in the day” instead of admitting defeat. I must say it is amusing but it is also ridiculous that a grown man can’t admit he’s wrong to a woman. He has to actually be proven wrong and shown the facts and will still think of some alternate explanation as to why he’s wrong.
I just felt like getting a little bit of my thoughts off my chest.. don’t mind me…
