    Relationships have normal ebbs and flows. They do not automatically get better and better when the participants learn more and more about each other. Instead, the participants have to work through the tensions of the relationship (the dialectic) while they learn and group themselves and a parties in a relationships. At times the relationships is very open and sharing. Other time, one or both parties to the relationship need their space, or have other concerns, and the relationship is less open. The theory posits that these cycles occur throughout the life of the relationship as the persons try to balance their needs for privacy and open relationship.

    So yea, I think that prioritizing yourself last is the real meaning of our cultural understanding of the word "good". It's all about self-sacrifice. The opposite of which, "evil", is to is think of yourself first, and to self-preserve.
    This "cultural understanding" which you speak of is immature and highly disrespectful.

    He who is truly happy is good and struggles to be evil.

    He who is truly unhappy is evil and struggles to be good.

    I think this is backwards. Dark is the abscence of light, it is not itself substantial. It is a romanticization of evil to say good and evil are balancing forces, like yin and yang. There is what is good, what is true, what is right, or the abscence of it.

    It's all inside your own mind.
    I was sitting outside the classroom waiting to go in, and I saw an airplane hit the tower. The TV was obviously on. I used to fly myself and I said, "There's one terrible pilot."

    There is what is bad, what is false, what is wrong, or the abscence of it.

    This formulation draws the attention to what deserve none, so I disagree. If you are quantifying based on what isn't rather than what is, then you are lost.
