You and your partner shared a sort of cockeyed viewpoint. To be blunt, you were oddballs. A couple of eccentrics, delighted with your break from the mainstream.
It was a wonderful thing to feel that 'you and me against the world' spirit, but you let things go to far. Your relationship became too intense, too ever-present. There was no space to breathe and grow, just the two of you cocooning inwards into your own little space. It was comfy, at times, but it didn't leave you an awful lot of wiggle room, you who needed to disrupt and move and do.The solution could have been found in turning your attentions on your own goals, respectively. Two such dynamic people as yourselves couldn't be allowed to stultify. You had things you wished to accomplish, dreams you wanted fulfilled. You should have tried to integrate those dreams into the day-to-day life you had with your partner. If you needed more training or education, you should have gone for it, while still taking time to schedule in the alone time both of you craved. You should have supported your partner's aims by trying to reach your own -- in a short time the two of you could have been in a very different place.
