good partners co-evolve

in relationships it’s vital to find partners
who match and more or less mesh with your pace & style of growth

in a way, everyone plays an essential role in your life,
each person you encounter draws out & helps you discover (or recover) another facet of your Self

in effect, mismatches are inevitable and indispensable for driving this very process of self-(re)discovery

but it is absolute key that you don’t overstay and don’t let others either overstay their welcome
for every relation solidifies the Self into an IMAGE for its other
which propels growth only till a tipping point of diminishing returns

in short:

the IMAGE you co-create with your partner in your relationship will sooner or later stifle you (two) out of a generative dynamics into a degenerative one if the mismatch in your styles spirals too wide between the two of you and you cannot transcend (and include) that IMAGE of yourSelves in another (upgraded) version of it as the relation evolves & progresses

it takes communication
listening, self-awareness and common sense
