If You Were Dumped

No animal but a human when rejected would dream of doing anything but getting back in the game without missing a beat. If you bit into what looked like an unusually good apple, to find it was rotten, you would not swear off apples for the rest of your life. You would just be more careful. I harp on this because I created so much needless misery for myself and wasted so many years of my life by handling being dumped unusually badly. I don’t want you to make the same mistakes.
