Hearts & Minds
Each of us perceives the world as we want it to be perceived. Yet sometimes we react harshly or angrily to the environment, cursing the world, or being downright nasty to people around us. We are human beings who perceive things with our logical minds & illogical hearts. Thus we are fallible in our preconceived feelings & judgment. Yet can we not open our hearts despite all the times we have been hurt before? Can we not try to believe with faith & keep our minds receptive to new input instead of cynically viewing the world against us?

Male VS Female Brain?!
Adding to the complicated jambalaya is the male/female-gender sex divide. Where both sexes in the same species somehow ends up viewing situations differently. For example in a relationship, like how the female actually desires to know more about her significant others day & shares into his life. While the male tries to protect her in his own way by not telling her things trying not to cause her unnecessary worry. (No small wonder that books with mars/venus explanations reach the NY bestsellers list). So with this divide still looming upon us or becoming even more challenging in this new century, how are we actually going to make things better?

All the Small Things
Yet, as is often said, it’s often the small things that count the most. Still a line remains between are you being nitty-picky & overly anal about every single small detail. And the other extreme of the spectrum where everything & anything is perfectly “cool” & “ok” until nothing seems important or relevant anyway. Plus the broad swaths of gray whereby we hover between are we focusing too much on the small details until it affects the big picture OR should we focus on the small details to ensure that it doesn’t adversely affect the overall scheme of things. Can we find that perfect balance of going into detail when needed yet at the same time focusing on the important things?

Question
In any kind of relationship: how, when & should we address something even if minor or trivial?

  1. @petrina: true that. speed is of an essence to address any issues. otherwise misunderstandings abound!

    @beezee-bee: *chuckles* so do we make that time/place/individual happen? or should it not really matter that much?

  2. I tend to wait until we are alone, but I let my feelings be known. Luckily, my husband knew me for 10 years before he asked me to marry him, so we was warned. LOL

  3. hmmm….

    On the first day me n my girl started dating i made a promise..

    i promised i will Never be Angry wif her… No matter what…

    1 of the reasons is bcos.. i wanted her to freely express watever she wanted, anytime she wanted, without hesitating or feeling worried that i may get angry or hurt.. :p (but she is still worried :p lol) ….As i want to know at all times wat she is thinking n feeling πŸ™‚

    ….and take the necessary steps to apprehand and prevent complications :p
