RE: Psychology Addict # 36 | Shaun the Sheep & Marriage
So, to break it down nice and simply: rational communication is always the better choice.
Well, I can definitely agree on that.
the woman releases her frustrations through tears and the man through anger.
I almost never get angry, even when frustrated. Does that mean I'm special?! ◕_◕
But pleeease spouse, when your wife/husband turns to you; turn the TV off, put the phone away.
Is there experience speaking? :P
Hence, avoiding cynicism, sarcasm, disrespectful remarks and tuning out is a smart move.
But...but...that's all I'm capable of (╥﹏╥)
They often reside in a world of bitterness, deception and arrogance.
Sounds like the world I'm living in, but I constantly reflect upon myself. Maybe I'm just weird ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
Anyway. I think your points are not only valid for marriages (you know my stand on that), but for all kinds of social interactions. Most of the problems between people can easily be avoided/solved by choosing to engage with each other mostly in rational arguments.
I tend to end/avoid debates whenever I feel the other party is emotionally involved too deeply - there is just not any point in discussing things further.
Whenever others start to scream and insult, I just sit there smiling and laughing - I refuse to take people serious who need to resort to emotions and offenses during a debate.
People need to learn how to communicate without too much emotional interference - otherwise their problems will be unnecessary hard to solve.
