The SLIGHTEST perception of out doing them will result in a war dedicated to destroying your entire being. I’m no expert by any means but these articles and posts helped me to connect the peices.

We used to have arguments in our 30s and 40s — he would be angry because I had grown up good-looking and ‘could have any guy I wanted’! (Not true, because of my self-esteem. I didn’t date in high school). I could never understand why we’d argue about things like this, that were irrelevant to our life as it was.

If anything you should thank the new girl for setting you free. You are still young and there will be plenty of other men out there.
