Rock the BoatConflict can be Messy—and Helpful

If you're like almost everyone else with a partner, you have a mental and emotional image of who that person is - and that image is not 100 percent accurate. When your partner acts in a way that doesn't match your mental image, it can drive you crazy and lead to conflict. However, conflict and friction can be used to help you and your partner grow as individuals and as a couple.
