Relational Dialectics

In chapter 8, we discussed relational dialectics, which are
opposing human needs that create tension and propel change in close
relationships. The three dialectics of connection/ autonomy, openness/
privacy, and novelty/ familiarity
punctuate our friendships, prompting us to adjust continually to natural yet
contradictory needs.

Friendships can strained when people have different needs.
There could be tension if Joe is bored and wants novelty but his friend Andy is
overestimated and needs, calming routines.
Similarly, if Andy has just broken up with a girlfriend, be may seek
greater closeness wit Joe at a time when Joe has a strong need to feel
independent of others. When needs cullied, friends should talk. It’s important
to be open about what you need, and to be sensitive to what your friend needs.
Doing this simultaneously honors your friend, and the relationship. Friends
usually can work out ways to meet each person’s needs or at least understand
that differing needs don’t reflect unequal commitment to the friendship.
