remembering our differences

without the awareness that we are supposed to be different, men and women are at odds with each other. we usually become angry or frustrated with the opposite sex because we have forgotten this important truth. we expect the opposite sex to be more like ourselves. we desire them to 'want what we want' and 'feel the way we feel'.

we mistakenly assume that if our parents love us they will react and behave in certain ways-the ways we react and behave when we love someone. this attitude sets up to be dissappointed again and again and prevents us from taking the necessary time to communicate lovingly about our differences.

men mistakenly expect women to think, communicate and react the way men do; women mistakenly expect men to feel, communicate and respond the way women do. we have forgotten that men and women are supposed to be a different.

so, when you remember that men are from mars, and women are from venus, everything can be explained.
