Terri:Hi, I’m Terri Suresh. Welcome back to the Wellness Curve. I’m here with The RelationshipCoach and menglish expert, Andrea Jones. We were talking a little bit about the workplace and how women can’t understand and learn this culture difference, this menglish in the workplace to create harmony in the workplace. Let’s get a little bit back into that topic and just wrap that up a little bit. I finished a thought when you were speaking because sometimes I think a lot of women can take what we’re saying as we’re going backwards to the 50s in the States where we were just waiting on men hand and foot. That’s not what you’re teaching at all. Let’s just make sure that’s all very, very clear.
Andrea:The States is a country which is wonderful when it comes to equal opportunity. We have equal rights and we should have equal rights. I’m not taking anything away from that that women can vote and have those positions, not at all. However, we’re not the same. We have equal rights but we’re not the same. If you forget about those differences we have, that’s when the problem starts.
Terri:Hi, welcome back. I’m Terri Suresh. This is the Wellness Curve and I’m here with The Relationship Coach and menglish expert, Andrea Jones. We were just starting to talk about the differences between communication and common examples of misunderstandings between men and women. I know you and your husband speak together and he speaks to the men on how to communicate well with women, but as women, how can we maybe avoid some of those common mistakes and miscommunications?
Andrea:An example is we women are taught early on not to be high maintenance. We say, “Don’t be high maintenance,” which we translate into being okay with everything that’s going on. We do this now still up to today.
Terri:Hi, I’m Terri Suresh. Welcome back to the Wellness Curve. I’m here with my guest, Andrea Jones. She is The Relationship Coach and she has coined this amazing term called “menglish.” How do you understand it? What does that mean? We’ll get to that a little bit later.
When I left you before we were talking about what it means to stay a woman and stay feminine and be feminine in a man’s world. How can you keep your happily ever after, find your happily ever after? That’s what we’re going to cover in this segment. What makes you and your approach to happily ever after so unique?
