1. As with all situations it takes two to clap. And each hand will have its conditions, limits and expectations. But instead of anticipating and manipulating the other, how about sorting out my hand? To know my strengths and weaknesses, along with when and how to deal them out. I cannot look to the other to fix this game of bridge if I can't get the picture straight in my head. My picture. Only then can I even begin to think about a round of applause.
2. Even if I do, and can trust another. What is my motivation for doing so, and is it healthy? I feel like I should think along the lines of institutional frameworks and safeguards. Like, what happens when the virtuous leader dies?
Do I make sense?
