Re: previous post regarding them as Brick Walls
Their hearts are often in the right place, bless them, but I haven’t yet figured out why we can’t get through to them.
Maybe a metaphor will help… A terrible one but its late, I’m sleepy.
Women from Venus, Men from Mars.
Women are willing to travel to Mars and checkout the scenery. We absorb the full experience of the place, the history and the future. They learn things like why the planet might appear angry but knowing its actually just hungry.
Some Men don’t let Women to their part of Mars.
But those that do have a Woman who understands their planet and existence.
Women openly invite Men to visit Venus, to stay as long as they like and ask as many questions as they can - after pulling them over in their little space cars with all their luggage all the way over to Venus’ atmosphere, the Men are presented with a locked door and a key.
Men proceed to enter, but are suddenly distracted by their luggage.
Most of which contains old thoughts & beliefs, resentment to expand on such beliefs, excuses, and the naïve approach that there’s no need to try unlocking the door because she’s already shouted to you from across the galaxy what it’s like in there.
And that means they understand.
