New bed new beginning
When I was in my early 20s I worked for a newspaper on Brisbane’s south side. I covered court stories and I wrote feature articles. I was intrigued about infidelity, but in a positive way and I tried to understand it. I was only young and now I still don’t understand it, but the difference is I don’t try to anymore. Because to understand that I would have to understand people!!!! The article I wrote was mainly about prostitutes believing they were doing wives favours. To them it was a service they could offer to some husbands because their wives couldn’t!
Relationships are so unbelievably complex. Just recently I have had the pleasure of hearing some guys speak about girls doing ‘weird’ things and it was kind of nice to know that the ‘shoe is on the other foot’ sometimes! Ohh and by weird I mean mixed messages! It is just for years I just thought girls over analysed and processed things and went psycho, but now I know guys do too!!!!
I recently heard a guy say when a person loses lots of weight after a relationship has ended it is their bodies’ way of preparing for the next relationship! I never looked at it like that!
These days with an influx of separated families like never before we just have to be mindful of the impact on children. If we can’t understand our own relationship….wow..then no one can! Give kids the chance to grow in the situation and still love both parents and be the best they can possibly be.
Ohh if everyone tried the honesty policy the world would be less complex. No games, no lies just how it is…from the heart. I think some people can do this some of the time, but not all people all of the time!!!
You may be interested in watching a series current screening on the ABC called “AGONY UNCLES” – where some of Australia’s supposedly funniest and wisest celebrity gents put their “reputations” on the line to tell you what it’s really like to be single, cohabitate, marry, divorce and then be single again in the 21st century. Like normal people should be taking important, life changing advice from them???? Don’t get me wrong, it is interesting and entertaining but I hope people don’t see this as a documentary. Some of the quotes I picked out:
- “I wasn’t sure if my wife was cheating on me with him or she was cheating on him with me”
- “Breaking up should be like trying to get yourself sacked – and we all know how easy that is”
- “Never tell her how many women you have slept with”
- “You know you are in love when you don’t share all the dirty details with your mates the next day”
- “Have a 3 month trial separation, you will enjoy it so much that you wont want to go back”
Agony Uncles is celebrated as “an unblinking 6-part, half-hour factual series that charts the do’s and don’ts of picking-up, falling in love, getting your heart broken and losing a house” I’ll let you be the Judge. http://www.abc.net.au/tv/agonyuncles/
