Who I am Music Video
Our love song and love story intertwine like no other. It feels as if we have experienced countless lifetimes, and finally, discovering one another has brought us an overwhelming sense of serenity and joy. As time passed and wounds healed, we realized that true love is a profound partnership in every aspect. Although we can reflect upon our past, we no longer dwell there. We embrace growth, cherish love, and continuously evolve. Our former selves are mere fragments of distant memories. We have made peace with our history and fully embraced the journey towards sobriety, trust, and love.
