How did you come to be not-partnered?
Was it by lifelong choice? Circumstance? Death, separation, divorce? Were you imagining a resilient lifestyle with a partner or without one? There must be quite a range of circumstances here.
I myself have always been resilience-minded, even before I had a inkling of what it meant or why it was important. I always imagined myself partnered with someone who valued that perspective. I suddenly found myself unpartnered two years ago due to separation and eventual divorce, and now I'm revising my resiliency plans to accommodate going it alone. My ex-partner did not share the value of resilience and so in some ways it's easier now than ever to shift my lifestyle in that direction.
I am curious about the variety of perspectives we bring to this group. How did you come to be a person who would fit in with a group like this one?
