I do believe this is true also. I have cynically exaggerated the downside of change and the helpless feeling of being stuck to make my point that it’s difficult to do inside a relationship, but I do feel at some point you must decide if releasing the relationship is not what is best for all parties concerned. This decision can only be made from within the the realtionship by the parties invlovled. Additionally, the only person you can change is yourself.
Holding on, letting go, either way, if one intends to find and honor their authentic self it will take work and there will be growth available for both persons invlolved in the relationship. Thank you for weighing in Salma. I appreciate you sharing a balancing perspective.
