Excerpt from my new book all about travelling and growing up.
'I plunged deep into doubt again, regarding all the decisions I’d made about Jan. Because of my inability, or reluctance to form relationships, I hurt the people that cared about me most. I’d rationalized that it would be better for me to go through life and have friends and lovers, but nothing deeper than that. I thought I’d found a sure-fire plan to get through my time on Earth without getting attached to anybody, therefore eliminating the chances of being hurt again when the relationship ended, or the person left me. My plan seemed to have backfired.'
