Most of us spend a lot of time divorcing parts and pieces of ourselves in order to care for someone else. For example, you like to go jogging but instead of jogging, you spend that time with your partner to show him or her that you really care. “I love you so much that I would give up this thing that is valuable to me so I can be with you.” This is one of the ways you divorce you to create an intimate relationship.
For me, Sylvia Kusuma, this book makes me more aware that what I thought what relationship is, is not something I would like to. Because those are based on other people point of views, such as parents and media.
