Every time you watch those classic movies of the 50s and 60s, you always see the husband coming home from work while the wife would be receiving him at the door with the children waiting with smiles and anticipation. And of course, warm apple pie.
The mom would teach the kids to look up to the father and they would grow up idolizing him. In return the dad would respect and trust the mom to run everything and educate the kids. You would watch these scenes unfolding in the screen and you would get a warm fuzzy feeling in your heart.
Fast-forward to 2013 and we are now living a very different picture. Every time someone speaks of the opposite sex is usually to make a joke about how men can’t multitask, women can’t drive, and the stereotypes never end.
Where did it all go so wrong where men and women stop being seen as complement for each other and instead have this subconscious ongoing competition of who is better. Is there a better sex? Surely we are asking the wrong question… The way we should be looking at it is that when a couple partner together rather than trying to compete at who does what batter; then you have an unbeatable team.
Don’t let this subconscious competition be part of your relationship. Look at the qualities you partner has that perhaps you don’t and learn from that. This will only make you a better person.
Fight for each other; not against each other.
