I came across this poem and wanted to share it with other mums as I am sure there are other mums out there who get frustrated with their partner not being able to listen, and always wanting to fix things. What do you think?

When I ask you to listen to me and you start giving advice, you have not done what I asked.
When I ask you to listen to me and you begin to tell me why I shouldn't feel that way, you are trampling on my feelings
When I ask you to listen to me and you feel you have to do something to solve my problems, you have failed me, strange as that may seem
All I asked was that you listen! I can do for myself, I'm not helpless; maybe discouraged and faltering, but not helpless
So please, listen and just hear me, and, if you want to talk, wait a minute for your turn: and I'll listen to you.
