I'd been writing about the dangers of love stories for five years when my own story became a subject of international interest.
. . . sometimes, when you commit to a difficult decision, it comes with an unexpected relief. And the relief feels to good to give up. I understood how you could leave someone and feel lost without him, and still choose that loneliness over being with him.
I love you has the capacity to carry us somewhere or nowhere. It is the only solution we can offer to the problem of love.
