Who really wins in a break up? On the one hand, you have the “break up-ee” who is forced to cope with the conflicting pain and outrage of being told they are no longer needed nor wanted by their significant other. On the other side of this broken equation, you have the “break up-er,” the one effectively putting an end to the continued progression of the relationship. Since the “break up-er” made the decision to call it quits, then any rational thinker would naturally assume they came out on top right?
Not so fast.
There are occasions when the “break up-er” impulsively ends the relationship, only to later regret it. In the eyes of the “break up-er,” I’m sure they initially thought they were making the right decision. Over time though, they begin to miss the smile, the kiss, or the laugh of the one they pushed away, which causes them to double back and try to make amends for their foolish mistake.
