I think it was Abraham Lincoln that said “I don’t think much of a man who is not wiser today than he was yesterday.” This is especially true when we think about how little we knew about love, sex, and relationships before compared to what we know now! Would you say that you are smarter now?
Of course, there are relationship lessons that some people refuse to learn. It sort of has this butterfly effect that can actually effect other people. I know I’ve been stuck on stupid before and it probably turned into a train wreck for someone else.
I’m sure that some poor soul has had to pay the price of bad decisions made by somebody else. A cheating wife or girlfriend has made some guy super paranoid or bitter. A possessive or jealous man has turned a once free spirited woman into a guarded person that doesn’t let anyone in.
Do you think that your dating mistakes has caused another person to endure challenges?
Do you ever feel as if you are paying the relationship price of somebody else and their mistakes?
Does this ever happen in a good way? Do you reap the benefits of someone’s hard work from your significant other’s previous relationship?
