Conflicts and Communication in Friendship and Marriage – Crumbs for When Opposites Collide . . . .

 ???????????????????????????????????????

“A true friend knows your weaknesses but shows you your strengths; feels your fears but fortifies your faith; sees your anxieties but frees your spirit; recognizes your disabilities but emphasizes your possibilities.” William Arthur Ward

“A man falls in love through his eyes, a woman through her ears.” Woodrow Wyatt

“The goal in marriage is not to think alike, but to think together.” Robert C. Dodds

 

                       growing together        “Women communicate differently and process information differently, which leads them to resolve conflicts differently.” Dee Dee Myers

“Think about it. If you married someone just like you, then

  • You wouldn’t have to grow.
  • You wouldn’t have to get out of your comfort zone.
  • You wouldn’t have to enter into someone else’s world.

Instead, differences are precisely what you need to become the person God created you to be.  As Solomon noted, ‘As iron sharpens iron, so a friend sharpens a friend.’ Proverbs 27: 17 NLT” Michael Hyatt

“Two are better than one, because they have a good reward for their labor. For if they fall, one will lift up his companion. But woe to him who is alone when he falls, for he has no one to help him up.”  Ecclesiastes 4:9–10, NKJV
