When it comes to life, growth is not an option.

I was approached by a man a weekend or so ago. He proceeded to start a conversation with me which ultimately led to him asking me out. My response was "you never even inquired if I was in a relationship or seeing someone". He said "oh, well are you in a relationship?" I said, "yes I am (I'm in a relationship with myself).

Now I wasn't trying to blow him off, even though I had no interest whatsoever. But my answer was the truth and it was intentional. I am in a relationship with myself, which hasn't always been the case. I'm getting to know me all over again. I'm becoming my biggest fan, my own best friend. Like most people who are single, I have a list of 'most desired qualities' and 'deal breakers'; but I cannot ask of someone what I am not able to give to myself. So in this relationship, I will be honest with myself, respect myself, be affectionate with myself, forgive myself, spend quality time with myself, be kind and gentle with myself, and enjoy my own company. I will laugh at myself, treat myself, and encourage myself.

The most important relationship you will ever have in this life is the one with YOURSELF.
