REMEMBERING OUR DIFFERENCES:
We mistakenly assume that if our partners love us they will react and behave in certain ways – the ways we react and behave when we love someone. As a result, our relationships are filled with unnecessary friction and conflict.When you remember that men are from Mars and women are from Venus, everything can be explained.
AN OVERVIEW OF OUR DIFFERENCES:
The two biggest mistakes we make in relating to the opposite sex: men mistakenly offer solutions and invalidate feelings while women offer unsolicited advice and direction.
Men and women cope differently with stress: Martians tend to pull away and silently think about what’s bothering them, Venusians feel an instinctive need to talk about what’s bothering them.Men are motivated when they feel needed while women are motivated when they feel cherished.
The greatest challenges:
Men need to overcome their resistance to giving love while women must overcome their resistance to receiving it .Men and women give the kind of love they need and not what the opposite sex needs – men primarily need a kind of love that is trusting, accepting and appreciative. Women primarily need a kind of love that is caring, understanding and respectful.For Venusians, every gift of love scores equally with every other gift, regardless of size. Instead of just focusing on one big gift, the little expressions of love are just as important.
GOOD INTENTIONS ARE NOT ENOUGH
Falling in love is always magical. It feels eternal, as if love will last forever. But as the magic recedes and daily life takes over, it emerges that men continue to expect women to think and react like men, and women expect men to feel and behave like women. Without a clear awareness of our differences, we do not take the time to understand and respect each other. We become demanding, resentful, judgemental, and intolerant.
When men and women are able to respect and accept their differences then love has a chance to blossom.Through understanding the hidden differences of the opposite sex we can more successfully give and receive the love that is in our hearts.Love is magical, and it can last, if we remember our differences.
