“Over the course of our lives, we make millions and millions of decisions that are essentially bets, some large and some small. It pays to think about how we make them because they are what ultimately determine the quality of our lives.”
Love isn’t going to transform our world into something that will always be full of light. Love isn’t going to turn our life into a perfect daydream. It isn’t going to become a fantasy. Real life — and love — will never look like what we see on Instagram or Pinterest, or the “happy endings” of most film, or what that couple we know IRL projects when they’re around other people.
