Your relationship is not going to work, if your world-view conflicts with the world-view of the person you are in relationship with!
- In case of a couple: If one of you believes that life is about being self-dependent and the other believes in supporting-each-other!
- In case of 2 business partners: If one partner believes that entrepreneurship is about falling in love intensely with your work, and the other believes that one needs to be more pragmatic
- In case of 2 friends: If one friends believes that tactfulness is the right behavior in social situations, and the other believes that candor is the right approach.
Our world-views shape our behavior. Hence, 2 people having conflicting world-views are going to behave in conflicting ways.
For example, a mission-oriented business partner will think long-term while the pragmatic business partner will think of short-term results. A business partner in love with his work will be more comfortable in tolerating uncertainty, while the pragmatic business partner will get nervous in such a situation.
Check if your world-view conflicts with the people you are in relationship with. If your world-view is in conflict with theirs, sooner or later problems will arise.
If you want to be really happy in your relationships, there are only 2 options: Either align your world-views mutually, or peacefully part ways.
