I wish I had the courage to commit to a bit like you, “Abed”, or to a relationship like Troy. Committing is hard ‘cause we are all scared of what happens when we find out we committed to the wrong thing. But there’s no shame in what Troy’s done. He put himself out there and he really tried and that proves he cares. That said, and as hard as it may seem right now, Troy needs to show he cares. He needs to put himself out there and own how he feels. That proves he’s a man.
