  • I mostly agree, but a real relationship takes work and is not always about one person being *enhanced* it takes sacrifice and compromise from both sides. My relationship has definitely shaped me to be the person I am today.

  • Well, I mean it in the sense that I think that you should live your own life independently and not rely solely on the other person for your happiness, well being, mental state, etc. The person should make you a better person but you shouldn't let them affect how you conduct your life. You should still live for yourself and take care of yourself to a certain extent too.

  • I agree! Relationships should enhance your life, not define your life! :)
