    Miscommunication

    You only hear what you want. You never really hear what I am saying. You refuse to listen. If I ask you to pick up after yourself, you hear me calling you a slob. If I ask you not to smoke in the car with our children, you hear me calling you a bad parent. If I tell you how...

    I hate having short conversations with my partner. I will text him and the conversations are pretty typical and predictable. "How are you?" "Did you eat yet?" "What you up to?" "Miss you." I guess I want more. I want to feel like every opportunity to speak with another is...

    It'S Always Been Humanity'S Biggest Problem

    We are all living under different realities with different perceptions. We get upset when we feel like we're owed something by someone, when in actuality that "someone" probably doesn't realize they're in debt. A lot of bitterness and distrust comes about when people act passive...

    Out Of Phase

    I think the biggest problem is being out-of-phase. So like by the time one person is fed up with some problem, the other person's trying to make peace over it (-or SOMETHING LIKE THIS- ... I had better words earlier), but because you're 'suddenly' mad they say "screw peace" and...
