Day 10: Your Relationship

I am in a relationship with me, myself, and I. Last May I broke up with my boyfriend of two years, and since then I have been working on being happy with myself. As much as I hate to admit it, the relationship I was in was toxic and unhealthy. I pushed away all of my friends, and I never did anything. There was so much control and jealousy on his part and mine. It was terrible. But thankfully I finally had enough and ended everything.

I told myself after the break up that I was going to be single for a while. I was going to work on me. At the time I wasn't ready for, nor did I want, another relationship by any means. My next relationship would be the total opposite of what I had experienced, and I knew getting involved with someone else too soon wouldn't help anything. Ultimately the same problems would have come up and ruined everything. And I knew I didn't want that.

In the past year I have grown so much as an individual. I know what is important to me, and I know what will be important to me once I meet someone worth my time. I know I won't tolerate the bad things that happened in my last relationship because I know what I deserve, and I'm not going to settle for less. It's a liberating feeling. I feel so much better about myself, and I know this time I've spent with myself has been exactly what I needed.
