Dating a recovering alcoholic with depression - “I Kissed Dating Goodbye” by Joshua Harris


Selena largely kept out of the spotlight most of the summer in the weeks before and after her kidney transplant surgery. In August, she made a rare celebrity appearance at a Q&A event for the movie  Good Time  and told the audience that she was "on bed rest" a "little while ago," without elaborating.

Yet here was Angela about to end it all, with no apparent cause. I hypothesized to myself that their resolution of the event five years ago left something to be desired, that there still were major factors left unresolved between them.

People tend to be predictable, and are prone to repeating the same life mistakes again and again. Becoming conscious about the types of mistaken decisions one is likely to make (based on having made them in the past) is the best defense against making similar mistakes in the future. If, for instance, a first spouse was attractive because of his passionate and volatile attitude, but he later turned out to be abusive, it would likely be a mistake to get involved with a similarly passionate and volatile man in the future. If a first wife, chosen in part because of her careful attention to appearance, turned out to be an out of control shopper in part to support her attention to appearance, it would seem to be a mistake to get involved with similarly 'high maintenance' women in the future.
