You know us women are a smart species. We are intuitively skilled with the ability to care and love for others. We are sensitive, beautiful and full of emotion. However, as I grow older I see this ability in men that allows them to let things roll off their shoulders so much easier than us. I wish I’d learned early on in my years how much emotional grief it could have saved if I’d seen the value in it. I would have had less emotional breakdowns, unnecessary sadness, and misunderstandings going on in my life. Which in the end would have left more time to enjoy life. I know I can’t believe I’m saying it myself, but maybe being a little bit more like a man when it comes to the grudges we hold onto might not be such a bad thing.
Men, they can have it out with each other, hurt feelings, even punch each other in nose and if not the next day then at least within the week forget all about it, and have a beer with each other. Maybe it’s because they face it right on, and get it out of their system. I don’t know. I’m certainly not advocating getting in a fist fight with each other or even having to take it to the level of always getting in arguments. We can handle things with all the wonderful intuitive loving emotional gifts we have, and if we don’t get anywhere, then let it go it’s not worth the heavy unforgiving grief we hold onto for years.
Bottom line, men can learn as much form women as we can from them. That is what the yin and yang are all about the blending of the two, and as we become centered the balance of understanding begins to come into view.
