I recently re-watched my favourite film of all times for the n-th time. And I came across a quote that hit me a bit too hard. Why do we always tell our stories through relationships?
Don’t get me wrong. Relationships are great. But really, why do we always talk about ourselves through our relationships. Do they determine who we really are? We are a lot more than someone’s girlfriend/boyfriend. Our identity is not defined by who we love.
I love my S.O. With all my heart. But I would hate to be known just as their S.O. Aren’t I my own person?
