the individuals are totally committed to their own development as separate, independent people. They are also committed to one another's growth; the relationship supports each person's growth as much as possible
We each must be responsible for our own growth-but we need to also see that this requires COMMITMENT to DO, not just to think about developing ourselves.
Additionally in committing to the relationship and to one another's growth, we are able to "get down that path faster" because we're a team and can find the "tricks" that solve one another's issues as well as our own.
If we falter in our development, we stagnate, and stagnation leads to extinction.
