That old saying, "If you love someone, set them free"?
That’s a Sting solo album song title, people, so how can there be any truth or wisdom in that?
Besides, why would you set someone free if you love them? What would you be freeing them from? Your love? And if so, then what are you supposed to be admitting to yourself about the way that you do, in fact, love someone? Or, better yet, what would you be admitting to the person you’ve been loving?
