A crisis is a crack in the code. It can occur when everything laid out for you, and all of the things that you have half-wittingly accepted, meet a desire to be something more than the skeletal image of your own dead dreams. It can also come with the realization that life trickles away quickly, and there’s no going back.
"Unraveling Love Stories" is from the February 14, 2017 Lifestyle section of The New York Times. It was written by Gabriel Rockhill and narrated by Fleet Cooper.
