Learning to Let it Go
“A mistake is always forgivable, rarely excusable, and always unacceptable.” – Robert Fripp
This quote is very appropriate for relationships, as it reminds us that the person who is most permanently damaged from a mistake, is often the person who dished it out. It may appear as if men don’t care sometimes. However, in the end, nobody is hurt worse than them, as they must live with the regret of knowing that they were the only ones who could have changed the outcome. Ladies, please forgive men for these eight mistakes in romance; if for nothing else, because “nothing [will annoy them] so much” (Oscar Wilde).
1. Can’t Express His Feelings
Men struggle to share their feelings with women, whether in marriage or friendship. While only 20 percent of a man’s regrets involve his relationships, a good portion of these are due to his inability to tell a woman how he really felt. The woman may eventually move on with her life. However, she should have forgiven him, as men are taught to avoid their feelings, which leads many of them down a very solitary road.
2. Sorry is Not a Part of His Vocabulary
Guys rarely admit being at fault for their actions when they hurt you. Forgive him, as guys have a different idea about what constitutes bad behavior.
3. Assumes That His Woman Will Always Be There for Him
Guys often take women for granted. They assume that she will always be around when he needs her. This is because a good woman gives love unconditionally. She is not a doormat; however, and the day will come when she leaves him for a better life. Forgive him, as these men have a very big lesson to learn. If he fails to understand the reality of what it means to “give and take,” he will discover that his solitary road only narrows with age. Ask a psychic about your situation today!
4. Forgets He is Part of the Conversation
Mr. “Nope,” “Yup,” “Maybe,” and “Fine” can be a frustrating bunch of guys to most women. Why can’t he just open up and tell you what he really thinks about something? Forgive him, as these guys are often insecure about their words.
5. Doesn’t Know What to Do When You’re Upset
Guys are born to be problem solvers. However, their expertise is often limited to plugged toilets, dead batteries, and squeaky doors. Women complain that their men often avoid them whenever they break down and cry. Forgive him, as all men don’t know how to fix problems that don’t require tools and elbow grease. It never occurs to him, that a simple hug may be all that you really need.
6. He Hears You; However, He Doesn’t Always Listen
Women tell men many wonderful things. However, we often don’t hear them, because we are too distracted by other things in life. Forgive him, as sometimes late at night when he can’t sleep, as he recaps the highlights to his day, he remembers your words, and smiles.
7. Lies to Your Face
Men lie to your face in order to save face, avoid a scene, or escape from an uncomfortable situation. Men live for the present, which means they rarely consider the consequences of their actions in the future. Forgive him, as these lies will eventually catch up with him, and when they do, he will have told so many falsehoods, he will begin to question what the truth really is.
8. Because Your Hatchet is Out of its Sheath; He Thinks It’s Aimed at Him
Men often become defensive when a woman is upset, because they assume that she must be distressed over something he did. You tell him that you just need to release your frustration. However, he becomes annoyed and won’t hear it. Forgive him, as the day will come when he remembers all those missed opportunities to be there for you. He will understand what you really needed from him, and feel like less of a man because of it.
