Love and applied friction

Cartoon suggesting that real friends stick together like a joggers butt cheeks

love and applied friction

We pursue relationships to satisfy some need and we pursue close relationships in search of love, passion and happiness.  Close relationships generate friction and friction erodes our willingness to forgive the stuff that generates the friction: disputes, disharmony, disunity, conflict, hostility, rivalry, animosity, resentment and jealousy.
So maintaining close relationships requires knowledge of the limits of tolerance in ourselves and those around us when we do the stuff that creates the friction. Unfortunately tolerance can be pushed beyond its elastic limit…
