I sincerely believe that it is far more beneficial and far less costly to help a child build confidence than it is to fix an adult who has little or none.

Understanding men and women

on May 29, 2013

Couple Sharing Bread in Seaside RestaurantMen and women have always had problems communicating with each other and they always will.  Why is there such a problem with communication?   Basically because people are all different in how they think and act.   Besides these individual differences, there are also big differences in how men and women communicate.

  • Women in general are more emotional than men.
  • Men like to get things done quickly and get right to the point without a lot of hassle.
  • Women like to talk about things and men don’t.
  • Women are more nurturing and protective.
  • Men like to be heroes and feel powerful.
  • Women show their feelings, men try to hide them.

When it comes to money issues, this can be very emotional for both men and women in different ways.  For men, having enough money means they are a success or a failure.  For women, having enough money means security.  If there are financial problems in a relationship, this can make a man feel like a failure and women feel insecure.

There are differences in any relationship and we need to try to understand that we all see things from our own unique perspective.  A lot of factors determine how we understand things and if we are going to have good relationships, it is important that we accept our differences and try to communicate with each other.

Communication is the key to good, lasting relationships and marriages.  When communication breaks down, the relationship will also break down.

      Thanks. I’m learning so much about relationships in all my research and I’m glad I took a Communication class last fall. It makes everything that has happened in my life make sense. Too bad most of us learn all these things after we’ve already made a million mistakes! Hope I can help others understand better.
