Dodging bullets when the ex is no good for you

The warrior and the stallion


My uncle once told me about a warrior who had a fine stallion.

Everybody said how lucky he was to have such a horse.

Maybe, he said.

One day the stallion ran off. The people said the warrior was unlucky.

Maybe, he said.

The next day, the stallion returned, leading a string of fine ponies.

The people said it was very lucky.

Maybe, the warrior said.

Later, the warrior's son was thrown from one of the ponies and broke his leg.

The people said it was unlucky.

Maybe, the warrior said.

The next week, the chief led a war party against another tribe. Many young men were killed.

But, because of his broken leg, the warrior's son was left behind, and so was spared.

lol. No. I think you understand the meaning.


In my case, what I believed to be the loss of true love was the loss of a bad egg. I was blind to that person's true nature because I projected my own onto him. This has happened twice before and I thank God that I had a broken ankle. If I hadn't, I would never have known good relationships that followed (not including last ex) and I would probably never have had the confidence to achieve the success that I have.


I have decided that if I am in a relationship where the person does not bring out the best in me, that relationship is not worth having.
