Oscillation

When your lover dumps you, there is a tendency to do one of two stupid things:

  1. Put him on a pedestal and imagine he was the most wonderful human being who ever lived and thus you cannot possibly ever meet another his equal.
  2. Villainise him and berate yourself for being so stupid as to ever get involved with the world’s biggest bastard.

You may even flip back and forth between the two extreme views. The truth is he was just someone who on the surface looked compatible but was not. It is not worth the drama. Later you will laugh at yourself for making such a production.
