The title of this thread is not a click-bait. It happened almost 3 years ago. My first love left me after 3 years in a relationship. I cried myself to sleep at least twice a week, for almost a year.

Why am I telling you this? There's a simple reason:

Most people blame their ex'es for hurting them. Thieves for breaking their window to steal a TV. Or a competitor doing unethical things to win business.

There's a little crumble of wisdom that is so obvious, but so often ignored:

All of the above-mentioned people didn't want to hurt you. Anger, desperation, frustration were just emotions triggered by your reaction to a situation. All of the above-mentioned people simply made choices that were supposed to make their lives better. All of the above-mentioned people simply made a choice to improve their life and you were just standing on their way.

Most people tell me how evil my ex was for dumping me. Relatives tell me that they're surprised that I didn't get insane, because of all the events that followed after she left me (long story)...but you know what? I am proud of her. I am proud that she made a choice to make her life a better place. And she made a right decision.

Don't feel angry about others. We're all together in the same game known as The Life.

It all comes down to personal accountability. Even if it is not your fault for what happened, it is your fault for how you react to it.

Hard as it can be, I find it easier to forgive others and move on.

If you don't already you will have a better person for you in your stage in life. Your character here already shows so I know this is the case.

I definitely love this statement. I greatly admire Tom Bilyeu, who has stated on a number of occassions that even if his wife was lying in her family home in london, at night and an asteroid came out of nowhere, struck her house and killed her- he would blame himself.

He would look at what he could have done differently no matter what.

As it turns out inthis case, there's an organization that he is AWARE of, that currently monitors space for near- Earth objects. He hasn't invested- nor does he plan to. He uses the example as just that- an example.
