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 we are early in our journey and we feel that we have been attacked, our task will be to offer forgiveness. This will have a much greater impact than we may know at that time, because as we forgive the other person, we are also forgiving ourselves.
As we progress on the journey, we reach a stage where we see these "attacks" as calls for help, calls for Love and forgiveness by the other person. Finally, we come to see these "attacks" as gifts from our Self to our Self, as we are all One. This is a time when we no longer see or classify what we had previously called an attack.
These stages of awareness do not run completely linear. We may spiral back to forgiveness or tools we used earlier in the early part of the journey.
