**Disclaimer : Crazy Little Thing Called Love has started! And i have been having tons of thoughts in my head. This will begin a series of my thoughts on relationships, not just with the opposite gender, but also on family matters. Some maybe just a rant, but others i hope there’s an insight. **
“Do you realise that we’ve been going together for exactly six months?” she asks her partner sitting beside her. And then there is silence in the car.
That is one of the lines from one of the short pieces that is being performed in Crazy Little Thing Called Love. I decided to start off with that simply because I think as women sometimes we have a terrible thing called the brain. lol. I’m not saying that it is a big hassle but often times, as women we tend to over analyse a lot of things.
Just from that simple conversation above(or lack there of ) will cause a female to go into a frenzy in thinking. She’ll be wondering why he’s not talking, why he’s not answering… basically not doing anything to reaffirm her question / statement. All the while the guy would probably be thinking of anything but her statement.. instead considering to reflect on other more important things (or supposedly more important things).
I honestly wonder why it is that as women we tend to over analyse things. And we females always said that men do the analysing. Some of us females will analyse to the point that we maybe conjure up our own understandings and scenarios which may actually have not happen. I suppose we want the male to confirm what is going on in our head or whatever it is by saying something.
These inherent need to talk or ‘bond’ comes from our female side of producing oxytocins. Which is also related to other things such as social recognition, pair bonding, anxiety, trust, love, and maternal behaviors. I have a good feeling since we produce this while the males produces their testosterone, that the chances of understanding brains of either gender would take more than a lifetime. lol
Males prefer being practical and compartmentalising things. While us ladies go into immediate multitasking even in the thoughts in our head. We want to multi task everything. I’m not saying this goes for everyone but there is some small truth to it. The over analysing is not always a good thing as it starts to make you think of nonsense. Makes me consider to sometimes wish for maybe a small portion of a male brain. pffttt.
Point is, while i’m blessed at the fact we are given a brain, i don’t always appreciate the behaviour some of us ladies have when we start to think too much. God gave us a brain to think and I hope that in the midst of chaotic emotional thinking at times we will take the time to reflect on what are the things that matter more… rather than being disturbed by unnecessary thoughts.
Now just for a laugh… I don’t the least bit think this is true but it’s great for some humour.
