Can we talk?

Dear Men,

Yes, we believe you when you say you get hurt too. We believe you when you say you love us too. We are sorry for not being patient with you but, all we want is COMMUNICATION. You ought to know by now that us women love to express our feelings. All we ask is that you let us know your feelings too. We’re not prophetic, unfortunately. One word of advice, choose a conducive environment, and your words very well before you start expressing yourself 😁😁. We are ‘reaction beings’, we react just like some dangerous chemicals. One wrong word can ignite a fire you won’t be able to quench πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ but, don’t keep quiet. We want you to tell us that it’s time for periodic visits to the gym. We want you to tell us that things in the bedroom really need a little spicing… Please tell us those things no-one else will, not because you want to break us down, or put our weaknesses under the spotlight, but do it out of love. Do it because you want us to be the best versions of ourselves…. Talk to us as you would your own daughter and we will also respect you as we would our own fathers. We are examples to your daughters, so help us be the best examples.

That’s basically what we need…. Let’s talk. Open up to us, if you are hurting, cry…. Forget about what you have been told when you were young, real men do cry. Real men talk. They discuss their feelings. If you can’t talk to us, then go for counselling, talk to a pastor… Just talk to somebody who can truly help. Don’t trash us with another woman… Then make sure we never ever find out. Treat us the way you want your daughter to be treated.

How about that? Let’s just talk… If you can’t find the words, write a letter. How about a WhatsApp message? Communication is vital for the survival of relationships…. Let’s try it and see how it goes.

I have lots more to say, but, I don’t want to dominate this conversation πŸ™ƒ

Waiting to hear from you…

On behalf of women,

Peculiar Treasure πŸ˜‰
