“You can never doubt yourself.  There’s a part of you that knows if something is not right, if you are unhappy and if you put that to the side for too long it will eventually come to the surface.  My last relationship taught me a lot of things. My ex and I grew to be very different people. I was still growing and he was done growing. He was completely content with a basic lifestyle, and that’s okay, but there are people who have more drive and are reaching for something different, something other than just survival. I think I always knew I wanted more. He was okay with everything being the way things were and I wasn’t. Every time I tried to encourage him, I was nagging, and you can only hope that your partner will grow with you, not apart from you. I am very okay with who I am now, and I used to think I was not happy for all these different reasons. I was unhappy because I had to commute to Charlotte everyday, or I was unhappy because I was still in school and finally I realized I wasn’t happy because I was not being myself. So now I feel like I am finally beginning again. Even though I lost a good friend, I gained myself back, and I am really excited to have me again.”
