Wow Kris. This is the second article of yours I’ve read and you are officially my favourite writer on Medium.
I love the idea about loving the person your partner is growing into. This means as well as being concerned about your own growth you must be aware of your partner’s development too (even though you cannot control it).
“we never fell out of love at the same time.” — that make me smile
I would only add that both people in the relationship have to be committed and work hard for a relationship to last.
I think your article could help a lot of people get their ‘relationships’ heading in the right direction. Thank you.
