Cherishing the Differences
Our differences can be the reason why some of our most treasured relationships ends. You and your partner may have difficulties handling your diverse personalities. Due to this, you may have doubts that two individuals who are completely opposite cannot make a healthy and successful relationship. You are left wondering if your differences are the sole cause of your daily arguments and unsatisfied needs.
It is true that we base our attraction and interest on matching traits and values most of the time. On the other hand, do not forget the phrase that opposites attract. Some experts support this idea. Look at it this way: you look for a partner who has the ability to satisfy your needs and wants. Those are called “needs and wants” because you cannot fulfill those desires all by yourself. You need someone who has a dissimilar personality to fill in those missing pieces. For instance, an introverted individual may find comfort being with someone who is outgoing. If you are a fearful person, you might find courage from someone who is brave. This way, your weaknesses will be counteracted by their assets.
Be willing to share your differences with each other. Avoid the perspective that the relationship will not work out if you and your partner are very different without even trying to resolve the issue. Remember that you fell for that person because of his or her characteristics.
