Don’t ask questions unless…
“He who asks questions cannot avoid the answers.”
Beware of asking your kid, “What were you thinking?!?” They usually weren’t thinking at all, but if they were you probably wouldn’t like the answer: “Well, I’ve actually been harboring resentment towards my sister ever since you brought her home from the hospital, and that’s why I hit her.”
Beware of asking your wife, “Why are you always mad at me?!?” No one is ever always anything, and by asking the question you’re admitting you don’t notice the times she’s pleased (which may be one of the reasons she does get upset with you.)
Beware of asking your husband, “How often do you think about sex?” The answer will startle you, and it’ll be at least 50% lower than the truth.
Peace begins with pause,
