Be careful what you wish for

Often aggressive people partner with compliant people, and they think they have it made.  They get to choose their favourite restaurants or movies and they get to behave badly without a quibble of objection.  A toddler’s paradise.  What more could you want?

But then the boredom sets in.  Nothing coming back, a bit like being in a relationship with yourself.  Lonely … ☹

What’s more, over time, ‘no limits’ tends to bring out the worst in people.  It often leads to shabby, anti-social and even appalling behaviour. This is not because of being a bad person but because when there’s no sign saying ‘keep off the grass’ we’re simply inclined to walk on it.  Maybe even trample it.

When all is said and done, I am sure that the best thing we can wish for in a partner is someone who is our true equal, and has the mental fortitude to help us navigate the darkest moments of our lives.
