I'm so glad my words were helpful!
In my history, whenever I've been happy with myself and content with my life, that's when I've met the best partners.
Whenever I've felt a void in my life that I tried to fill with romance, I've found that it's never more than a temporary band-aid and doesn't lead to any long term solution.
Healthy happy people are drawn to healthy happy people.
And the best part of working on your own happiness is that whatever else happens with relationships, work, etc., you get to keep your happiness as something you built and own yourself, and not something that someone gave you and can take away.

someone else putting you in a box is entirely different
from getting into a box yourself.” —bisexualbaker
