Push and pull. Both are 4 letter words. Both refer to movement. Both require similar energy. The direction of the movement is what distinguishes the two. A discernable difference is that we push objects away from us; while we pull objects to us! Movement in opposite direction never brings two people together. “Stop pushing me away” is a famous couple expression when disharmony finds a home in their space. Coming together requires movements in the same direction and not opposite paths. Why waste energy and time if that is your goal? You are no longer on the playground playing a game to see what team wins! Whether it is a casual friendship or a serious relationship, a push countered against a pull will not achieve harmony or balance if you wish to move forward. A continuance in opposite directions will only accomplish discord with someone “pushing your hot button” for a reactionary outcome!
