Now, I am sort of reading between the lines of your post, so if I have trespassed, I apologize. What we wanted when we were younger, if we expand our horizons and the significant other doesn't feel like expanding, or is expanding in other directions we are not interested in.....we have to make hard decisions. There is an old adage, make a list.....if you have more negatives than positives as to co-creating with the significant other....then perhaps it is a time for contemplation.
Someone said something to me a very long time ago and it made perfect sense to me. If something isn't working; set it free. When something isn't working that is a sign we are out of balance, no matter what the problem. When the emotions get working we want to debunk that saying. There is also guilt. Our society teaches us here in the U.S. that wanting something for ourselves is wrong. That CAN be true, and then again not. There is a complete day and night difference between completing a life plan and selfishness.
