When you’re single, there is complete freedom to live how you want to live. But when you decide to share your life with someone, and yes you still have your own life, but the energy of another person and everything that comes with that enters your life. This can be beautiful of course. That’s why we do it. But it takes tools. Patience. Awareness. Flow. Compromise. Not making it about you. There is stretch involved and if he / she doesn’t have that elasticity, good. fucking. luck.
