Appreciating Personality Differences

Opposites attract. It very often happens. We tend to “fall in love” with someone who complements us. There may be pressure to change, which feeds a constant tension. Why? Because we are different. We don’t want all the same things. We don’t think or feel or act the same. We can begin to feel stuck. Because an intimate relationship involves 2 different people, tension between 2 different ways of thinking is built right in. When we feel this tension, it is not because there is something wrong with our relationship/marriage, it’s because it is the nature of it!
