I met my boyfriend a year ago today. Context: I'm independent to a fault and this realization took a long time coming
  1. Relationships change you
  2. Not that they always do, and not that you should set out for that or hope to be saved
    cause that's a mess
  3. I am fine on my own
    Obviously 🐋💅🏻💁🏼
  4. But if someone is great, that person ✨should✨ change me / make me better in some way, if I'm bothering to spend time on them
  5. I think I am kinder. I think I am more gentle.
  6. I have learned how to get his cat to like me.
  7. We have both had some highs and some lows (usually not at the same time).
  8. We were not always as supportive of each other as we could have been.
  9. Ma la vita è bella
  10. Anywayyy I have a sneaking suspicion that I'm a better person for knowing him and that's what any relationship - family, friends, romantic, whatever - should allow you to do
