I thought I knew so much. Understood so much. And I did. But there was this entire world that had not even crossed my path yet. That I had yet to explore. And I know so much more now. I understand how relationships change you. How you see yourself through a different prism. How the world transforms when you have a person by your side. And the comfort and the terror in that. How relationships change your level of independence. How you dress differently. Think differently. Have different priorities. And some of those are great. And some of those open you up to experiences that are best not repeated. How some of those make you reexamine who you are and who you want to be and what you can do to get there.
