That would be a footing as I see it It's indipendant of external influence and reflects a part of who you are.

Definitely a foundation aspect. There is room to adjust and be worked on to achieve but the core value is always constant.

I think you have been pretty clear in the need present. This is a foundation ingredient in my opinion but it needs a compatable ingredient from your partner to solidify....that is why he needs to identify the aspects of his own footing. Does he have a matching ingredient that can be worked into the mix?
One solid footing is usually not enough to properly build a foundation. Sounds like it might be his time to look inside at who he is without the influence of anyone else.
