Tiff, your article really resonated with me. As someone who is literally going through a break-up, I have to remind myself that my long-term happiness stumps having a relationship with a person if I feel like I have to constantly give love without receiving in return. While I was ready to choose love, your post reminds me that I should be happy with how things unfolded. I imagined if it had gone differently, I would have shared very similar experiences to yours and would especially hate to lose myself (again). I’ve been on that ride before and it wasn’t a pretty one. Anyways, best wishes to you and your endeavors. I’m sure you’ll succeed with this relentless drive of yours!
