Mutual Respect and The Power of Intimacy

By Dan Griffin, MA, Senior Fellow at The Meadows

Power is a very interesting phenomenon. I remember having numerous conversations about the complex intersection of power and relationships in graduate school. There was a lot of confusion as to what exactly power even is.

For decades, researchers have struggled to define the unconscious processes of irrational love paramount in myths and fairy tales. Lovers in these stories are portrayed as love struck, driven to tantrums or immature behavior, wholly bewitched by the spell of the beloved. The psychologically tormented, unstable duo is incapable of secure, mature love, rendering them unable to function until they are driven to insanity and, at times, even to death.
