Experiencing interdependence or intimacy is a fullness. We are filled with a desire to put our best foot forward whether or not our partner reciprocates, full of the awareness that we both have good days and bad days, full of the awareness that a bad hair day is nothing personal, full of the awareness that crabiness and complaints are just that, complaints and crabiness, again nothing personal. Full of the freedom to move beyond my self and my fears of change into the realm of the US. Full of the freedom to give each other maximum freedom to dance the entire dance to the fullest. (Page 166, final chapter)
So are you willing to put your best foot forward even if your partner does not reciprocate? Are you willing to create fullness in your relationship even if your partner is not willing to dance the fifty fifty? (And actually, we will learn in tomorrow's post, that you can't dance the fifty fifty anyhow! It doesn't work.)
It is often scary to even consider making decisions to create something in the relationship that either you predict your partner will not reciprocate or perhaps your partner has just outright told you he or she will not reciprocate.
However, it is often in making this decision to carry your weight, to do your dance, that triggers the desire in the other to reciprocate. So nothing to lose, really.
