into play every time two people are together. They can benefit
a relationship, if the differences are relatively minor.
But if personalities are too different, they can clash.
happen when personality differences are extreme.
Partners can avoid conflict by reaching out every day with
patience and understanding to accept, value and affirm
the other person’s strengths. In this way, they can
transform potential problems and issues into an enriching
aspect of their relationship.
But everything depends on the attitudes
of the partners and whether they’re willing to stretch
on a regular basis.
This can be difficult
if one person has a particular mindframe in his or her comfort
zone, and the other person uses the same mindframe only seldom
or rarely. In such a case, one person may think a certain way
and want to do certain things, while the other person may not.
The gap may be so wide and occur so often that it’s hard
to see the difference as a strength or to think of it as a
valuable, beneficial aspect of the relationship.
Unfamiliar and unexpected behavior can trigger
misunderstandings, disappointment, impatience, irritation, anger
and pain. If these negative feelings are allowed to escalate
and accumulate without resolution, they can divide the couple
and ultimately destroy the relationship.
