Am I in love with the person or the feeling? I had never thought about that before. Sometimes I think I get lost in the feeling and forget to see the person the feeling is supposed to be connected to.
I am studying for my 'human growth and development' final and just read a chapter called Identity and Intimacy.
This chapter I just read talks about how important it is to have identity before having intimacy, it makes intimacy more lasting if you know who you are brining into the relationship - if you know yourself.
I don't think I have been really sure about who I am until now. I think I have sort of always based my opinion of who I am on what other people think of me. I have sort of been like the ocean, moving back and forth based on the gravitational pull of the moon and the sun and whatever.... I don't really know how it all works.
Lately I've been discovering who I am, and I like it, I am totally in love with myself. I wanted to be perfect for everyone, but turns out I am unbelievably imperfect, and I love it! its so much more fun!!
