“One way to drive fear out of a relationship is to realize
that your partner’s values are the same as yours, that what
you care about is exactly what they care about. In my opinion,
that drives fear out and makes for a great partnership
whether it’s a corporate partnership or a marriage.”
— Steve Jobs
This idea from Steve Jobs demonstrates that we all need each other and when we find those with common values, a relationship can be mutually beneficial.
Another quote that adds to this idea is from Hermann Hesse, where he says that “our mission is to gain true discernment of the contraries, first as contraries, but then as poles of unity.” I just love that “discernment of the contraries” portion of the quote.
Often what appears to be contraries is after all, poles of unity. Truly, we all came from the same source and will return there.
There Is More In Common Than Not.
