“Let’s Work It Out.”

Thursday, April 19th, 2012

For those of you who don’t have time to comb over social media, tumblr and pinterest sites (we don’t even know what half of those places are)…here is a favorite that the girls have been passing around.

Remember, nothing is that insurmountable that you can’t talk it over and work it out. As we girls in the kitchen say, “don’t let the stew go unattended!” Remember, don’t attack the problem head on and come on strong. No guy likes that. Be smooth. Be a gentlelady.

1. Suggest a neutral space. Go out and get a cup of coffee or a meal together.

2. Ease into it. Think of a memory or a happy time. Even something funny. Don’t stick to a formula, weave it in.

3. Bring it in gently for a soft landing. Touch your husband, and be honest. Say the most elegant and simplest four words:

   “Let’s work it out.”

4. Always end strong Talk about some of your concerns, but always end on a positive note. End with a reminder of why things do work for the two of you as a team. And that it’s worth it to give it another go.

YOU CAN DO IT! We know you can!
