Why Do We Glamorize People Who Hurt Us?

“I’ll never find another guy like that again”.

“He was a tough boss and I let him down – there goes my best job ever”.

“I have lost the best friend I ever had”.


Try these.

“He was rude and not that good looking”.

“Good job, lousy boss.  Good riddance”.

“My friend turned on me, but I will be a good friend to someone else”.  

Glamorizing people who hurt us distorts the relationship and makes us reward bad behavior.

Be fair when assessing the positive traits of another, but don’t put someone who hurts you on a pedestal.
