Quiet Dignity And Grace

Norwalk, CA

When a young man sees his ex-girlfriend, say, the mother of his child, and she's with another guy, he's got a few options. Be a man, accept that life has moved on and there are things in this new life to process and accept. Let her go and know that you've grown as a human being, taken some strong, if tentative, steps into adulthood and gained some of the calm perspective that age and rationality brings.

Or you can torch her car and run away.
