If you're dissatisfied with your career or with what you contribute to the world, your lover tries to help you to find a better way to be an effective part of things -- but any advice they give could fall on your deaf ears. They just might not understand what you want to do; they might completely misinterpret or undervalue your talents, and could give you advice that doesn't even apply. This doesn't have to be such a bad thing, though.
In fact, it might end up being a positive experience, because it forces you to take responsibility for your own work and for being an effective and content member of society. As long as you and your partner don't expect to see eye to eye on every little thing, you're probably okay. And hey -- disagreeing on outward subjects like work and social obligations is a lot better than disagreeing on more personal, intimate matters, right? If you give it time -- and plenty of clear, conscious communication -- you come to a point where you two understand each other and the talents you each possess, and you have a better idea of how to help each other be more effective in your work.
