Joke of the Day

If you love something, set it free.
If it comes back, it was, and always will be yours.
If it never returns, it was never yours to begin with.
If it just sits in your room, messes up your stuff, eats your food, uses your phone, takes your money, and never behaves as if you actually set it free in the first place, you either married it or gave birth to it.

Jokes about relationship always capture my attention. Most of the jokes about marriage would make me chuckled. Why is that so? I think because most of them are sacarstic in a way and yet it is quite true. Sometime, or perhaps most of the time, I can't stop wondering, "Why is it so hard when it comes to relationship?"

I have seen so many people around me struggling so hard when comes to relationship, and I am definitely one of them. We simply do not know what's in opposite sex's mind and could get frustrated easily by blindly guessing.

I just finished watching a movie named "He is just not so into you" few days ago. Throughout the movie, I can't help wondering and kept asking myself, "How true are those 'theories'?" One thing that I agree with, is that different gender thinks differrently to certain extend and sometimes we misinterpret the messeges or signals sent by the opposite sex. I am not referring to the 'signals' of whether "he is into you". What I am saying here is, sometimes we hope our partners can 'read' our minds, we ASSUME or EXPECT he or she knows what we are thinking. On the other hand, we THOUGHT that we know them very well. Then, just like my favourite professor said, "We stop getting CURIOUS to our partners."

For example, when our partners did something that we do not like or do not agree with, instead of being curious and ask them what makes them do so, we accused them and blame them:

"You do this because you don't care!"
"You NEVER care!"
"You are such a jerk! How could you do this to me?"

Worse still, some of us start calling names.

I am taking "Couples and Family Counseling" this semester and I always learn a lot from every class. I truely enjoy it. My intention is just to share this joke of the day but I ended up writing these. Anyway, hope this joke could make you chuckle as I did.

Haha! Sean, never thought of this post could get your strong agreement! But you are right, some of the people did behave that way. Sigh! Hope we will be able to gain the wisdom when in a relationship.

That movie did make me think a little. There is no doubt to say that it was an interesting movie but do not take their words as it is. Instead, trust more on what you read from the book by John Gray. That is a good book. If you have chance, get his other book named "Mars and Venus Starting Over".
