Relationship paradox: the spiritual quest for union and freedom psychology of emotions, motivations a - The Love Paradox | Psychology Today


Someone asked me if it was true that people in relationships were happier than those who are single. The issue is quite debatable and the answer evaded me. So, over the past week I have been asking different people, married, single, divorced, engaged, and newly- weds for their opinion. But I still could not easily determine whether people in relationships were happier than single ones.

I decided to analyse data I had. According to my survey people in stable relationships, which offered security and understanding, were happy. But immature relationships led to short-term happiness and extreme sadness in the end.  Facts confirmed my study. People in relationships live longer. Marriage apparently adds around seven years to the life of a man and four to the life of a woman. Figures for those who live together are similar.While both psychologists and physiologists agree that people in relationships are happier than those without them an unhealthy relationship can lead to extreme unhappiness.

Humans are social animals. When  in a relationship people can share things, take care of each other and offer support. People appear to feel better about themselves and their lives when they move into more committed relationships. Which is why many of my friends were happy when their relationships started but now just a few years after getting married, they are miserable. A married friend of mine says:

When it comes to relationships, the partner who is the least invested in making the relationship work is actually the one who holds the greatest power.

Think about it, when you’re deeply in love with someone who doesn’t love you back, your intense commitment to “making it work” might be the least of the concerns of your significant other. Their lack of interest, in effect, gives them the power to walk away and leave you heartbroken or broke.

Some people mistakenly believe that anger  is an opposite of love, but apathy and lack of respect are the truest enemies of caring. When a partner no longer feels invested enough to argue or dignify comments with a response, it’s likely that their heart has shifted and the connection is no more. If a person has no concern for the partner's feelings, that person now holds the balance of power regarding the future of your relationship.

A few years ago, you’d probably hear an agency’s heart sink when the term ‘insource’ was uttered by a client. It meant you were getting a ‘haircut’, as they say. But in a world of skills diversity and balancing acts, that sentiment is changing.

Insourcing skills reflects a growing trend towards greater flexibility across the marketing landscape, particularly when skills gaps pop up ‘whack-a-mole’ style and the planning to execution cycle shortens. Many B2B businesses can’t move fast enough to keep up with themselves. 

Our Breathless Business research shows that keeping pace with innovation is a real challenge for B2B businesses. To that end, utilising agencies can be a great way to close the gap, by possessing skills that you may not have in abundance in-house.
