Domino Effect

One of the biggest mistakes we, humans, make when making life decisions is that we tend to allow our feelings about one situation basically override our feelings for others.  For instance, when our love lives go bad, most of us allow it to destroy our careers, education and sometimes, our physical health. We tend to over-eat or under-eat and totally forget to take care of ourselves. Simply, because we allowed one of many scenarios in our lives to overrule all the others.  We're sad, we're crying, we're angry, obsessive, we lack an appetite or only eat comfort foods, etc and all we do is think think think and feel feel feel what happened with that person right then and there, failing to see that a year later, that person, situation or circumstance will be the very last thing on your mind.

It doesn't make a difference how you meet people. People will still treat you like a tangible item. Someone I once knew told me that he felt like the search for "the one" is useless these days.  He stated that you can meet a person today and hit it off and by tomorrow morning, they've decided you're not good enough and that's it. I advised him that I went out on TWO dates with one guy who claimed he was very interested and I never heard from him again.  I dated another man for about two months once who never let on that he was confused or losing interest until it was brought to my attention that he was still keeping his options open. And let's not get into a man I invested three years in who was busy inves
