Promote Love

I’m standing here today.

Trying to promote love while my neighbor over there is teaching you how to spread the hate.

They teach the young and old every degrading name to call one another. There is no respect for a person now a days.

Hate is spreading like wild fire while the love they water down.

They show you how to be revengeful. Everyone is too busy trying to kill one another. Where has their compassion gone?

Everyone wants to get even instead of to turn away and walk.

No one wants to speak highly of their friends , they prefer to be envious.

Bestfriends are gossiping about one another and talking behind each others backs.

Family members are tearing each other down.

Where is the love?

Please tell me what is going on?

Is this hate satisfying your soul ?

Doesn’t it hurt you inside?

One day I hope we will join together and like the good book says “Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you and pray for them that despitefully use you and persecute you.” Matthew 5 vs 44.

Gender differences

Gender differences have been the main focus over the years when it comes to understanding male and female conflicts. There have been many assumptions for the roles of both genders. Men were always seen as the more powerful and dominant of the two genders, while women are perceived to be the passive and weak ones. Expectations of gender differences have impacted many relationships both friendship and romantically; in such ways as language, behavior and understanding but this is not the complete reason for conflict between the two.
Language impacts male and female relationships in a few different ways. There are a lot of stereotypes in language but it is important to note that stereotypes aren’t lies; they are just over-exaggerations. Language plays a part in placing a gap in male and female communications but it is not the only source of their conflict. Women are typically seen to be soft spoken and tend to express their feelings more freely than men do. Men tend to hold their feelings in and then explode. People would say this comes from childhood and the different ways that male and female were grown up to believe is their gender roles. A male gender role is seen to be the strong one which means that they show no emotions, in this way males are seen as women’s superhero, which is the image the world builds. While women are suppose to be vulnerable and very emotional, always needing rescuing. There is even language that is seen as more feminine than masculine. In a survey I have collected between some male and female I asked them the question do you believe that women are better listeners than men? And 100 percent of the females that I interviewed believed that this was true, that women are better listeners than men. 50 percent of the males that I interviewed believed that is was true. I also asked them the question, “Do you believe that because men do not discuss their feelings and tend to switch topics often, while women are known more to express their feelings and discuss a topic longer that this can affect the way they communicate with one another?” One hundred percent of the women believed that this was true and one hundred percent of the men believed that this was true as well. This shows that there is some form of gap in male and female language which can impact the relationship.
