Relationships are tricky.  Underbellies get exposed and shame spirals quickly commence, leading to weeks and months of cloistered living with nothing but the light of a single candle and faint caterwauling from the street below as distraction from the reverberous emotional implosion of a break-up.  But we here at Mr. Judas say, Chin up.
