Hey Ivana, thank you for sharing your honest insights. I know from my personal experience we are both strong willed (which brings its own joys and struggled) individuals. I believe that relationships work best when both parties are equal partners in all aspects and each is willing to stand up and say what they want.
Thus, I agree with you completely. I find that each person is responsible for not only speaking their minds, but also giving the other the space to do the same. I could not imagine living my life any other way.
