Keep calm. Don’t try to force your growth onto them. Everyone has their own journey. Protect your own but also respect theirs, don’t stuff your enlightenment down their throats. Agree to live with differences.

But what happens when your significant other rises above all expectations, and it still feels like you’re somehow settling? How do you explain that you’re choosing to let go of a perfectly good partner in search for something greater?
