I used to think that when people fell in love, they just landed where they landed, and they had no choice in the matter afterward. And maybe that’s true of beginnings, but it’s not true of this, now. I fell in love with him. But I don’t just stay with him by default as if there’s no one else available to me. I stay with him because I choose to, every day that I wake up, every day that we fight or lie to each other or disappoint each other. I choose him over and over again, and he chooses me.

I had terrible self-confidence when I was younger. I was paranoid about being too skinny, I had no boobs and looked like a boy. It got to the point where I wouldn’t wear short sleeves because I hated my skinny arms. I remember filming my first scene in bikini and I cried and cried. But, as I’ve got older and met some new mates who helped boost my confidence, I’ve accepted that everyone is beautiful in different ways.
I don’t want tea, I want to find my mother. And then I want to find out who took her in the first place, and I want to kill them
