Raised to be a world-class doubter, to say that Ozioma was uncomfortable with expressions of love is an understatement. Even when her best friend said, “I love you,” she couldn’t say it back. When she nannied for a 3-year-old boy who told her he loved her, she froze yet again. That night, she went home and had to rethink her doubting tendencies. The childlike simplicity with which he loved her taught her that loving, and saying it, is worth it.
