hear what i am sayingShe will feel you are trying to understand her when..

-You listen and can repeat back what she says

-You don`t try to “fix her problems”, unless she specially asks for a solution.

-You try to identify her feelings

-You never dismiss her feelings, no matter how illogical they may seem to you

-You say: “I appreciate you sharing that with me”

-You don`t interrupt her when she`s trying to tell you how she feels

-You apologize and admit you were wrong

-You cut her some slack during her monthly cycle

-You see something that need to be done and you do it without a lot of hassle

-You express appreciaton for all she does: “honey, I could never do your job”

-You pray with her and for her
