I think I may have stumbled on something today. I can’t begin to count the # of posts I’ve written about listening.
- There was the time when I realized that all men have the ability to completely zone out any time they hear a woman’s voice
- There was also the time when I confused hubby’s inability to listen with the fact that we can’t seem to agree on project timelines
- Then there was the time when hubby lovingly declared: “If I actually listened to everything you had to say, my head would explode”
- And, perhaps to start it all of, way in the early stages of the blog, there was the first time I blogged about Selective Listening
Every few months this communication challenge rears it’s ugly head in our home…..
BUT this week, I think I may have just realized something I didn’t know before. Something that men all over the universe have been hiding from us. Something so simple and yet so telling. Did you know that LISTEN is actually an acronym? It was by accident that I stumbled on this but ladies, I feel compelled to tell the world. I’m just now starting to realize why we seem to have such different expectations of the concept of listening……..
So ladies… now that you are armed with new knowledge…… go out there and make those men really LISTEN!
