Fun with Mixed Messages

Is it any shock that we are so confused? Look at some of the mixed messages that we are told everyday.

Strike while the iron is hot.
Patience is a virtue.

The early bird catches the worm.
Good things come to those who wait.

Don’t be a prude (said to anyone who doesn’t want to talk about sex).
Don’t be a slut (said to anyone who does talk about sex).

Self-acceptance is the path to happiness.
There’s always room for improvement.

Men need to be in touch with their emotions.
Grow a pair of balls (said to any man expressing his emotions).

If you stay home with your children you are wasting your talents.
If you work outside the home you are abandoning your kids.

Love completes you.
Learn to be happy alone.
