This prompt really speaks to me because I feel like many people have the expectation that you need to stay the same way, or that it does not make sense for you to want to branch out and change yourself.
I was in a three year long relationship and we started dating when I was 14 and it ended when I turned 18. By the end of our relationship he kept saying how I’m different, that my personality has changed, and that I’m just not the same as I was in the beginning. But I can just remember thinking, how could I not be different? I’ve experienced and felt so many new things throughout our relationship, that there is no way my 18 year old self would have the same mentality as a 14 year old.
In the prompt “ I am finished with these limited definitions of myself, and am opening to a new way” is written four times. Because it was written so much I feel like that simple sentence has so much power. And it is telling me that I don’t have to stay the same and I can choose whatever path I want in life, because my life is mine to live.
