Ladies, have you ever seen that Pinterest post or something on Facebook that says, "I just want to find that guy that loves my crazy"? Well, here is why that totally resonates... because we have our moments when we feel out of our minds-- men you have them too! For some reason, women's moments tend to be highlighted.
Anyway, the reason I bring up honest and crazy is because when we get really really honest with our "crazy" moments, or those moments where we just feel irrational. We feel completely separated from reality sometimes in our expectations, in our hopes. If we can get really honest with our partners about that, we could turn it into a pretty cool interaction.
Here's an example:
I was getting ready for family to come into town. I'm running around cleaning the house and I walk into our kitchen and there's dirty dishes and I look at my husband and he looks at me and I look at the dishes and that kind of goes around a couple times and I just kind of, I finally had to laugh.
And he said, what's happening right now?
He was confused and I just said, "I want you to read my mind. I want you to read my mind. It doesn't seem that impossible. I want you to read my mind and say, Robyn wants me to do the dishes and have them done like 10 minutes ago."
And so we had a moment where we laughed but we also had a moment where we got to have a really honest conversation about expectations and we got, we got to the bottom of a couple things and it just it created this environment for a really really cool and honest conversation.
