After numerous requests and a very timely email from a reader, I’m launching a new feature: Hooking Up Smart Success Stories! (HUSSS!)
I agree with you that relationship success stories are very inspiring, especially when they contain lessons the rest of us can learn from.
Understandably, I get more requests for advice than reports of brilliant success based on lessons learned here. It’s human nature to seek advice when we want to solve a problem, and most of us aren’t great about circling back to offer positive feedback after the fact. Sometimes, though, I wake up to an email that reduces me to a puddle of tears and reminds me why I continue to write the blog.
This is one such letter. Ashley, a yearlong reader and doctoral biology student, shares her story below.
