Connection between personal development and relationship

An experience of accepting, unconditional love, empathy and congruence that builds trust leads to real personal growth. Here is how and why?

As an individual, when you realise someone you have affection for has started accepting your love, you notice you started listening to yourself little by little as you don't want to do some stuff that would tarnish your image or present you in bad shape to your partner. The person soon starts taking over the same unconditional, consistent, congruent and positive attitude towards themselves, accepting themselves as they are. They become much more inclined towards fluidity, tentativeness of construct, changing experience of life and closeness of relationships.

There is some truth to the old proverb that "familiarity breeds contempt". When we first enter a relationship both partners are from different families , both will try to change to adapt to the new relationship.
