Self-improvement is a real distraction from growth. It's like the theory as compared with the reality. Growth means change, and for you right now, change means expansion. The quest to "be a better person" is questionable; to make the most of your life, and to use every experience as an opportunity to facilitate learning, is a mature approach. You're in a phase of considering your many possibilities; you have not felt this kind of potential in a long time. You can safely ignore any mixed signals you seem to be getting from your environment, such as what others think you want to do is really a good idea. You don't need to guide yourself by any form of public opinion. It looks like you're being guided in the direction of an opportunity to put potential and opportunity together. This may seem like a stroke of pure luck until you figure out that you will have to make some adjustments to a current commitment in order to bring this to fruition. Yet I suggest you consider whatever impact that any potential choice will have on a partnership as something working in your favor. You will raise issues such as the extent to which a certain connection affords you the freedom you need to make positive moves. You will get a look at what adjustments are necessary to facilitate this. Know what you want; remember that everything is negotiable.
