Finding an Unlikely Partner in my Husband

Marrying my best friend on the island of St. John

Part of the trouble with "starting over" is that your loved ones are forced to adapt to your needs and changes. It can feel awfully selfish, and in some ways, it is. But there's good selfish, and there's bad selfish and, sometimes, there's a real struggle with which is which. Frankly, more of us need to be selfish...the good kind of selfish. The pursuit of personal happiness should never be looked at as a bad pursuit.
