Thoughts about life.
What is relationship for me?
It starts with myself in the first place. Do I follow my intuition and my heart or someone else's? Do I connect with myself, or am I influenced by others?

My mother is my greatest friend, she is like a sister to me. She is the person with whom I can discuss everything. It was not like this from the very beginning. We both worked a lot to make it happen, and we have it now. And honestly, it is the predominant way for me to make any relationship work in life. Especially with people I love. So my mom has a very similar mindset to mine, and she loves me the way I am.
