You can still live your own life.
I can’t tell you how many people I’ve spoken to who have wanted to continue learning, growing, exploring, and improving – as they did when they were single, but their partner would discourage it. This could be for a million different reasons, though I find frequently it may be due to personal insecurities being projected onto you, but that is a whole other article.
The right relationship will show you that while you both become a “we,” there are still two thriving individuals present in the arrangement. You will have your own life, and they will have theirs.
The right partner will support and encourage your journey to become who you want to be – but still love and accept the person you are today.
