The purpose of a close relationship is to help each other grow in remembrance of God.
Initially, this will often take the appearance of arguments or "attacks" by one or both people. If you are early in your journey and you feel that you have been attacked, your task will be to offer forgiveness. This will have a much greater impact than you may know at that time, because as you forgive the other person, you are also forgiving yourself.
As you progress on the journey, you reach a stage where you see these "attacks" as calls for help, calls for Love and forgiveness by the other person. Finally, you come to see these "attacks" as gifts from your Self to your Self, as we are all One. This is a time when you no longer see or classify what you had previously called an attack. It does not mean that they don't shock or anger you, but you quickly rise to a high perspective.
These stages of awareness do not run completely linear. You may spiral back to forgiveness or tools you used earlier in the early part of the journey.
