Friday Five. It may be informational, entertaining, inspirational, or some combination. It may be five related thoughts, or five random topics. But it will be short. And it will leave you with a new thought, idea, or smile on your face.
1. R-E-S-P-E-C-T. Matt Walsh takes issue with the stereotypes of husbands and waxes eloquent on why respect is important in marriage in his article Your Husband Doesn’t Have to Earn Your Respect. Here is an excerpt from his post:
“They both swirl in circles around the drain. He fails, so she gives him no respect, and then he continues to fail because he feels disrespected, and she continues to give him no respect because he continues to fail. And so on, and so on, and so on, all the way to the divorce attorney.”
2. A second quote from Walsh:
“Respect is our language. If it isn’t said with respect, we can’t hear it. This is why nagging is ineffective and self-defeating. This is why statements made in sarcastic tones, or with rolling eyes, will never be received well. We have a filter in our brains, and a statement made in disrespect will be filtered out like the poison it is.” [Click HERE for the article]
