“We bring out the worst in each other.”
“I abstain you from making any moral decisions and you make me follow no one else but my own sense of reality. We make each other much more the sociopath.”
“How is that a bad thing again?”
In every successful relationship, partners have to complement each other for things to work. It’s not as much as the love that seals the gaps in between, but the complementary actions that puts our strengths front and center and makes up for each other weaknesses. For many of us, finding someone who is our equal and opposite is a hard thing to find, but more often than not, such connection is built over time.
I tend to believe that most relationships don’t work out because when people change over time, those changes take them far apart from one another. In knowing who we are and what we can do, we then begin to have an idea of what we want and what we can see in another. Something we all want in a relationship, the kind of emotional security we can take to the bank if they ever accepted feelings as a form of currency.
Meanwhile, I’ll enjoy the connection that I have, as unorthodox as it is. After all, if bringing out who we really are is something that should be done in a relationship, then let it be the best parts of us that we focus on. Even if that means bending more than our handful of social taboos. Can’t say I don’t like it. Can’t say you won’t either when you find out what your best really is.
