We rarely take our romantic life in the let-it-will-be-way. And it's quite understandable, we all experience high hopes or we are too afraid to get burned. High Hopes Quite often we are too naive and we believe that our romantic relationships will last forever.

How could I be so callous that I allow myself to feel defeated. Baker is no longer as convinced of her brokenness as her music might lead you to guess. For a long time she believed that she was born depraved, and had to learn how to be good. Jia Tolentino is a staff writer at The New Yorker.
