A lot of times when I got angry in a love relationship, it had very little to do with the other person and how they were treating me but it had everything to do with what I was doing which was usually settling and selling myself short just to be with them. Or the sex was good or I had a motive that involved the other person but the other person didn’t know anything about that. The other person had their own vision and desire for their life. I was mad when they couldn’t or wouldn’t make their life all about me.

Today I don’t need to be in a romantic relationship to feel like somebody, nor do I need another person to help me fulfill my dreams. I can listen more closely to the voice within when I am not trying to control someone else’s life and put the focus back on myself.
