Who was your first love? What relationship had the biggest impact on your life? Was it a friend, teacher, boss, or lover?
We all have them and we definitely have more than one in our lifetime. It typically starts with our parents who start shaping our beliefs and morals at a young age. Then we get our first boyfriend/girlfriend and start seeing just how impactful other relationships can be.
They may be good or bad, but they are nonetheless impacting who you are as a person.
