Essence: quarrels make it impossible to enjoy life.
Quarrels make it impossible to enjoy life
They like to build up a proper relationship because they need it to feel good about themselves. They like to enjoy the good things in life together with their partner. But because they feel so tense inside they can’t help but quarrel, usually about minor issues. They don’t like it and try to hold it in, but this only makes matters worse. The release of aggression usually happens at parties or other festive occasions, so that every outing gets marred by their inability to contain their tension.
Breaking off a relationship in order to avoid quarrels
They may feel forced to break off a relationship. This happens when different relations can’t get on with each other and there is always tension between one or more of them. They may decide that it is better to break with one in order to save the other. Such a situation may also come about through jealousy of their partner;’ You have to choose, it is either her or me!’
Aggression as a release of tension
Their tendency to suppress their anger leads to a feeling of inner tension. This tension may suddenly explode in a terrible fit of anger. Or they may feel an almost uncontrollable urge to use violence towards anyone who puts them under pressure, the tension in their body running out of control.
Pacifism is the only way out for them.
They may even use pacifism as an idealistic cause to ‘fight for’. They go around proclaiming that nobody should quarrel because it leads to tension in the world and stops people from enjoying the beauty of everything.
Enjoying quarrels: sado-masochism
In extreme cases we may see this theme expressed in the form of sado-masochism. These people can only enjoy things that are associated with violence.
