“In my romantic relationship, my partner does not complete me. He did not rescue me from myself, he did not save me from my miserable life, he did not fall in eternal love with me from just one look, he is not lost without me, he does not need me in his life…And neither is he stuck with me “forever”.
Instead, we choose each other every step of the way. We are complete people with our own personalities, agendas, journeys, perspectives…life! And so, instead of seeking to change or to contain, we choose to allow each other to be who we are while holding the space for each other to evolve and become MORE of our unique selves. Instead of blindly committing to some unattainable notion of “till death do us part” (although I did promise him eternity in our wedding vows, and he did not LOL), we choose each other every single moment of every single day. In this way, we grow together as individuals and as a couple.”
This powerful offering from Stela Murrizi brought me to tears. It takes much courage to claim unbridled ownership of your own life, as you choose to share it with another. From that deep reclamation comes the ability to honour that same powerful ownership in another, in his/her own life. As Stela so clearly speaks to: not the Disney world of relationship!
