More on Harsh Words
Monday I mentioned one reason men may be verbally harsh is projecting themselves on the issue.
Another reason is the combative approach to expressing ideas or suggestions. This is the best-defense-is-a-good-offense approach. A strong (harsh) proposal is less likely to be shot down. In some situations, it may be a useful or necessary method, but it’s not a good plan in marriage.
If your husband feels he has to do this at work, or learned to do it growing up, he may do it with you without even thinking about it. If you feel he might be doing this, make him aware of it by asking him why he starts out aggressively. His first reaction is not likely to be positive, but if it gets him thinking about it change may follow.
