This has been different from how I want it to be, there have been a number of negative patterns which its time to break out of.
More life outside each other, do things more separately and with own friends. I want time together to be by choice, not be default. Schedule time for own things – mandate it.
Do more things together, new things.
This relationship is different from the previous one, and it should be different – I see a repeat of old patterns and I reject this – its time to take conscious control of how things are going.
