Paper #1

This year it will be five years since I broke up with my ex-boyfriend. Most people agree that breakups are meant to be painful and difficult. Breakups are often the inspiration for endless movies and songs. However, as it turns out, heartbreak is an emotion you actually do not know until it materializes on you. There is a common cliché that says, ‘love hurts’, but if you have not experienced it, it just remains a romantic abstract till you actually spend endless hours crying and being in vain. This is a moment of intense loneliness engulfed in sudden sadness that can factually weaken the knees. Sometimes I think that maybe, I am too old to have experienced my first heartbreak, but because of my naivety, I did not think a heartbreak could be that bad after doing such a stupid thing in my life; that is, indulging myself in stupid courtship.
After reading Chapter Two, “Stupid Courtship,” in the book by Laura Schlessinger (1995), I noted numerous points that were present in this chapter, and that I have done in my past relationship. Looking back I can see that I made numerous mistakes to stick to a man that I knew little about the kind of loser he was. Perhaps as Schlessinger (1995) puts it, my desperation emerged from my failure to value myself and implement life goals for my future. As a result of my failures, I embraced through the “female escape route,” also known as men, which is often a socially acceptable measure that most desperate women use to avoid becoming single, lonely, rejected or bored.
In my past relationships, I used to find myself thoroughly disillusioned by crummy dates, but worsened poor communication and lack of call back. Such events triggered the cycle of self-reflection and obsessive thinking about what I did wrong for him not to call back. According to Dr. Schlessinger, dating is more about selecting as opposed to being selected. Slowly I started to understand that the mindset I had about dating was flawed. In other words, I acted stupidly like a beggar to examine who would accommodate me, saying yes too hastily to so many wrong men so that I could escape the chains of loneliness.
The stupid thing about my entire behavior is the self-destructive perception that there is no an alternative solution to not feeling lonely or being alone. I thought that one’s fulfillment and survival in life is to include a man by my side, even if the man is a loser already. Nowadays, I can see that my situation was filled with insecurity that I was afraid to exist alone, that I was desperate to have a man in my life and I even doubted my capacity to responsibly hold and maintain a house, raise my daughter or even handle a job. So starting from a young age and was first driven by peer pressure, and then by society, I committed my life to my ex-boyfriend for almost five years and decided to abandon my mother’s house. I took an enormous stupid step of what I thought was my one and only hope for survival, five years after this move, I have faced numerous challenges as a result of these stupid actions that I did.
After reading this book and particularly that chapter, I realized that I could have done a lot of things differently. Perhaps I could have listened to my mom and given a blind ear to peer/social pressure at the time. Now I am completely angry, depressed, and even overwhelmed that I did not read the book before. Trying to be positive I focused on what I have learned a lot from the chapter. And nowadays, I have a fresh thought about my life. Now I can pinpoint numerous hurdles from my previous relationship and where I went wrong. One of my positive lessons from my poor decisions is that at least it is that I will be in a position to guide my daughter through dating/relationships life, so that she become confident in herself and avoid falling into the similar potholes that I fell into. I will educate her on the blunders that come with peer pressure and the urge to engage in premarital sexual behavior that results when teenagers pass the adolescent age in their lives.
From my personal life, it is clear that I rushed into courtship with a blind eye hoping to be secure and evade loneliness. I failed to listen to my mother’s advice thinking that I had made perfect decisions to cushion me from feeling lonely and abandoned. My experience is a good life lesson for my daughter because I will talk with her about what life entails beyond the insecure feelings and the need to build a mountain out of a mole hill. For me at my age and situation (a single mother), I think that courtship will no longer work. Today, men are either very insensitive in how they handle women or men have been completely emasculated. I came to understanding that the society has a lack of masculinity that appears to have been washed away by the feminist movement. Feminism might have taught women that they no longer needed men to pull out a chair or hold a door for them but as a result, most men do not think that women should be treated gently. Instead, these men quickly calculate how fast they can benefit from women for the purpose to meet their own desires, instead of taking time and trying to establish committed relationships with this woman. I think that the desperation appears to be a key driver for women too quickly accepts men in their lives, and this sense of desperation and quickness has only made women perfect target practices for heartbreaks. Since I learned all those things from my life experiences and from reading books on this topic, I will teach my daughter following principles: that she needs to be self-reliant and take time to reach her relationship goals with the men. All of my knowledge that I will share with her, hopefully, will help her in a future to build a healthy relationship with men.
