A Common Tale

He left me for another
’tis a common tale but true

is a couple of lines from the folk song Lemon Tree. Memorise them. The biggest roadblocks to recovering from getting dumped is thinking what happened to you is unique in world history and there exists no other possible lover. No matter how it feels, this horrible experience is more common that breaking a bone. It is just the painful way life works to help you find a more compatible partner.
