just some thoughts on some re-reading

sex differences:
do they influence the way you respond
to deep wounding within a partnership?

difference 1
women try to preserve (maybe we can work it out)
men turn and run (don’t bother to come back)

difference 2
women get depressed
men get angry

difference 3
women feel inadequate as a companion
men feel inadequate as a lover

difference 4
women obsess
men distract themselves

not my words, simply something i’ve read and have experienced it to be so on many fronts, not just this painful year but for a long time in many different ways

i can’t decide if this is helpful to me or not. perhaps only in knowing i guess things play out in patterns
