Seeking Independence in Your Relationships
Relationships drain me. I’m honestly at my best single. My energy and productivity is unmatched
This is a tweet from someone I follow. When I read it, i knew immediately that i was not alone, i might have just found my tribe.
But when I reflected on it, I realized that it wasn’t that relationships drain me, it’s the fact that being in an exclusive relationship means something to a lot of people – a certain idea that they own each other.
Naturally, I am an independent being and this goes beyond finances- it bleeds into everything I do. I need my space to explore, to grow and find myself.
I discuss in detail in the video, why I seek independence in my romantic relationships and why my productivity level is unmatched when I am not in a relationship.
I will like to know what exclusive romantic relationships mean to you; do you get your when you do things with your partner? Do you think our partners can satisfy us completely? Should Partners have a life independent of each other?
