How does one handle economics in relationship?
Q: How does one handle economics in relationship? – asked by Arvindh, 21-Mar-2015
A: Relationship is the dimension of sensitivity and transaction is one of sensibilities. No transaction can be devoid of commerce and politics.All relationship is established on trust, dignity and respect. Relationship is all about interdependence. Individualistic interactions are obviously of independence.
To understand the commerce in a relationship, one has to understand about driving the car. The driver has to be an expert on the steering wheel so that the car does not crash. His feet has to accelerate and also know to use the brake appropriately. But the most fine balance is in learning to match the release of clutch simultaneously as you apply the accelerator. When all these components come together harmoniously, the car begins to move. Any error result in jerky moves and crash.
Similarly, maneuvering thru relationship needs tact. Manipulating the relationship to arrive at maturity, needs immense strategy. Your children who goes to school is not taught how to bring revenue. You simply are compelled to expend your earnings on them. But when the same children become adults, does not your equations change? Once they are adults, and enabled to generate resources, you expect them to trade with you so that sanctity of interaction is maintained. Where as if in case of disease or illness, then again the handicapped relative demands that you prioritize to kindness and compassion. Certainly, there is a compromise on commerce. In conclusion, relationship is founded on human values whereas commerce and transaction needs intellectual drive to enhance resources.
