“The concept that ‘If your partner doesn’t love 100% of who you are, change who you are so they do’ is utter BS”
That was one of the greatest lines I’ve ever heard in a stand-up comedy show. Yes. Stand-up comedy show by Daniel Sloss (available on Netflix “Jigsaw”).
Somehow, society has made that above sentence… acceptable…normal…”usual”
But that’s not how relationships work, is it?
What’s the point of changing who you are to become this romanticized version of yourself to please your significant other when in reality, you are not that person?
What’s the secret to a happy relationship? What’s the secret to being a good partner?
It should be simple. It should be easy. Everything about them should make you love them and everything about yourself should be equally great to them.
Both partners should be comfortable. It’s a two-way street.
DISCLAIMER: Even though I’ve never been in a relationship, I still like commenting about it because I feel like a pretentious arsehole 😉
