“In my thirties, I learned that there is a type of pain in life that I want to feel. It’s the inevitable, excruciating, necessary pain of losing beautiful things: trust, dreams, health, animals, relationships, people. This kind of pain is the price of love, the cost of living a brave, openhearted life—and I’ll pay it.

There is another kind of pain that comes from not losing beautiful things but from never even trying for them. I’ve felt that kind of pain in my life. I recognize it on others’ faces. It’s the pain of a woman who has slowly abandoned herself.”
