The great majority of relationships are studying the theme of the struggle for power.
Some people are aware of this, while others are not. One of the ways to have power over the other is not to validate their point of view.
It is possible to have an objective perception about the other that reveals their limitations to you, but this objective perception never leads to disputes.
To the contrary, it generates reciprocity in the relationship. This perception means not closing your eyes to the other’s flaws, but instead keeping your heart open while noticing them.
The most common way to punish the other for his or her limitations is by withdrawing love.
