I mentioned before that my husband is a pit bull and I’m a French poodle. I like to chat and he doesn’t. But that opposites thing really works. I am the one who trusts everyone and he is suspicious. But it works – if we were both overly trusting, we’d get into trouble, get taken advantage of, hoodwinked, robbed, etc. If we were both overly untrusting, we’d never connect as much and miss out on many of the joys of life. Together we make one normal trusting enough person. I can’t tell you how many aspects of our relationship are like this. Alone, we are out of balance. Together, with perfect fine-tuning, we are in balance.
