The last few years have been a period of change for me. Change is seldom comfortable. So while some great things have happened in the last few years (like moving out on my own and then getting married), it has also been a challenging time. I’ve cried a lot. What do you do when you’re between versions of yourself? How do you act when the rules you had written to guide your behaviour don’t apply anymore?
At the time I met my husband I was starting to feel uncomfortable with who I was. Some people will think I changed who I was for him, but nothing could be further from the truth. One of the things I love most about him is that he always accepts me for who I am at any given time, but without limiting me to be only that person. He has given me the room and the strength to grow. And for that I will be forever grateful.
Change is hard, but it is a sign of life. So I’m glad for the opportunity to change. I look forward to who I am becoming.
