If you scroll wayyyy back on this blog, you’ll find some posts from a time in my life where I was anxious, heart broken, depressed, and jaded. It was a time in my life where I had to be alone to grow because I had just gotten out of a toxic relationship that didn’t end on my terms at all.
Sometimes we need that. Sometimes we need our space to make mistakes, to fuck up, to do big things, and wallow in sad things alone.
But sometimes we don’t need to be alone.
My boyfriend and I are celebrating our 5 year anniversary this week. It’s the longest relationship I’ve been in.
In fact, he makes me grow and shows me happiness and guides me in ways I could never do on my own. If you scroll wayyyy back on this blog I was sad and I was alone. Today, I am happy and have the best little family around.
My boyfriend and I grow together. We recognize our mistakes and fix them, together. There’s no reason to back out or get scared and there’s no reason to face things alone anymore. While I think a lot of people would do good with some alone time, especially after a break up from a relationship that caused you to lose yourself, a good relationship means someone you can grow together.
