The other day I was sitting talking to my husband and telling him how it was beginning to feel a little normal between a friend and I that had a difference of opinion a little while ago which led to a very random awkwardness in our relationship.
Our spat, if that is what you want to call it, led to our husbands also having an awkwardness between them, because they didn’t know how to “fix it” for us. It made it less likely that we would all get together and hang out and just do life together which is how I relationship, albeit it a new one, was going.
At any rate, when I said this to him, he went on to say how hopefully this would be a great rowth opportunity for us and that it will strengthen us. But then he just shook his head and kind of dismissed the thought and said:
“Who knows, you women just have too many chemicals that affect everything”
I could do anything but laugh at him. I knew he was talking about us being hormone driven and how we tend to be more complex in dealing with situations that if they (men) were presented with the same scenario they would be over it in 30 minutes and sitting down to catch the second half of a good game.
I’d like to think, I am not “that female”, but I can’t say that I am not. I really wish that as females, all really, but specifically, my friends I am speaking of this time, could be better at expressing ourselves, resolving our issues and moving on without holding grudges and unspoken internal upset; without coming back together with that weird awkwardness and “walking on eggshell” type of interaction.
I laughed at him when he said it, but it just made me think, why are we (females) so chemically- ……imbalanced? Driven? Or whatever you want to call it?
