I’m beginning to think that I need to get my husband’s full undivided attention from now on before I talk to him.. otherwise I’m going to hear, “Huh? What? I’m sorry?” This will avoid me from having to repeat myself a gazillion times because he says he didn’t hear me but really I think it’s because he wasn’t listening. Pretty sure he was in a different mental waffle box.. KWIM? Men are like Waffles Women are like spaghetti.
Have you read this book? If not, I highly recommend it.
It taught me so much about the differences between the way Men’s brains work and Women’s brains. Sometimes I forget what I’ve learned and well, tend to want to rip my hair out. I mean, who really likes repeating themselves over and over every time they talk?
After further prayer and meditation on this subject, I was feeling pretty convicted. I could really stand to offer more grace when it comes to things like this. God offers me plenty of grace that’s for sure. So as frustrating as it is to feel like I’m talking to a brick wall, I have to keep in mind that the process in which men think is a slight bit different than that of women. And this may not entirely apply to every single human being but for the majority of us, men tend to think about one thing at a time and ladies if your like me, tend to weave our thoughts like well, spaghetti noodles. I can literally think about what I need to make for dinner while I’m working and carrying on a conversation at the same time.
So with that being said, I could save myself a lot of huffing and puffing and eye rolling and sarcasm which leads to an argument and then Ugh, an apology, if I will learn to just offer grace and find another way to communicate with my husband from the beginning. So here goes nothing… stay tuned, I’ll let ya know how I turn out.
