I love so much about this. That you're letting go of so much societal bullshit and freeing yourself makes my heart soar.
I will say, relationships with women can be fraught with the same issues as ones with men, speaking from experience.
It's more about the PERSON than the gender. I've been in relationships with a certain type of woman I ended up 'mothering' just as much as I ever have a man.
We have to be careful of our own draws; what has drawn us to a person in the past, male or female, will continue to draw us to another person if we're not careful. So we end up spiraling down the same rabbit hole, wondering what the hell happened.
We are both inherently caregivers, and most assuredly empathic, so we have to be doubly careful.
I'm always here for you, wifey. Love you dearly.
