About 25 years ago, I dated a psychiatrist. He commented that our issues clashed. I didn’t know, then, exactly what our issues were; and I didn’t stick it out long enough to identify them. I know now; and I think we missed an opportunity to heal the wounds behind the issues.
If you clash with somebody, seize the opportunity. Look at why. Don’t write it off as personality, or “he’s a jerk,” or “she’s needy.” See what it can teach you about you and a wound that still gets triggered.
Learn what the clashing has to teach you … and you’ll be just a little bit closer to the naked you, and the love of your life.
