You must never blank people when intimate relations have arisen. You must never slam the door in their face. I’ve been the victim of it several times – and it’s the worst. It gives you no chance of dealing with it and working it through. You just stand there in the middle of the road wondering what happened, what did I do…When the other party has a change of heart but will not tell you why they have, or indeed that they have – this is the cruelest mystery of all, for the mind cannot rest but cogitates ceaselessly.
