Breaking up is a time to make new friends since all of your old friends think you’re a jerk.  It’s a time of regret and renewal, and as the years pass, a time to reflect on choices good and bad.

Most of all, breaking-up is a test of wills.  If the BAT makes you laugh, good.  If you think it’s so funny you need to share it with a past flame, then the work here if finished.
