Guys, when your wife, girlfriend, or daughter has a problem, do you go into fix it mode? I do. It is in our nature, as men, to fix problems. That’s what we do, we are fixer-uppers. But it may be hurting our relationships.
You don’t have to be a fixer-upper
Starting today, with the help of a funny short video, I want to free you from your fixer-upper duties. Yes, I know it is going to be hard. I know you can easily identify the problem, and a great solution to fix the problem. But when it is a problem your wife, your daughter, or the first lady in your life are dealing with…
It’s Not About the Nail, is a short film taking a funny look at how this plays out in a relationship. Fellas, we think our ladies need us to point out, and solve their problems. However, they need us to listen. No matter how obvious the problem may be, listening will meet their need in many cases.
Its NOT really about her problem
Take a minute to to watch this funny film. Notice how things change when the guy goes from fixer-upper to listener. After watching, see the “challenge to the fellas” below the video, and share your thoughts in the comment section.
A challenge to the fellas
I challenge you to become a better listener. For the next few weeks, I want you to listen to your wife (g/f or daughter), and seek to understand her. Do not say anything unless it is a question to help you better understand. Only offer a solution to problems, if she says that is what she is looking for.
