  • If there were a time when there was absolutely nothing, then what would there be now? Absolutely nothing.
  • Could this be the universe itself? No, because if the universe as a whole were self-existent, it could not change. Change means something is contingent, dependent, derived.

  • “Now all the verbs Luke uses here of Paul’s evangelistic ministry – to argue, to explain, to prove, to proclaim and to persuade – are to some extent “intellectual words. They indicate that Paul was teaching…and arguing toward a conclusion. He was seeking to convince in order to convert.” (67)

  • there is a new study by computer scientists at Columbia University and the French National Institute that has found that 59 percent of links shared on social media have never actually been clicked, meaning that most people who share news on social media aren’t actually reading it first, and that’ll probably apply to this article as well.
  • People are more willing to share an article than read it. This is typical of modern information consumption. People form an opinion based on a summary, or a summary of summaries, without making the effort to go deeper.”

  • 1. Defining a Rebound Relationship:

    A rebound relationship is one that occurs shortly after the break-up of a significant love relationship. If you are in a relationship but have distanced yourself emotionally from your relationship partner, you may begin a rebound relationship before you even leave the relationship you are in. If you move quickly from a long lasting relationship into another relationship then you are probably in a “rebound relationship."

  • 2. Rebound Relationships Serve a Purpose:
  • a misguided attempt to move on with our lives.

  • you will learn nothing from the last broken relationship because of your unwillingness to learn from the break up instead of immediately moving on to another relationship.
  • Not dealing with our contribution to a failed marriage only means taking negative aspects of our personality into a new relationship.
  • The person who jumps from the “fire into the frying pan,” is taking the easy way out. And, the rebound relationship will suffer and so will anyone who becomes involved with a person on the rebound.

  • Your divorce is over, or at least you want it to be. Strangely, you find yourself drawn to one particular person. More quickly than you ever thought possible, you find yourself tumbling into a blissful, sensual feast of delights with a new lover. “He treats me like a queen.” She’s so relaxed and so FUN.” “It’s like he’s everything my Ex wasn’t.” “She really gets me.”

     

    Yes, friend, you’re there. You have wandered into Rebound Land.

     

    Unlike many others, I have a high opinion of rebound relationships. I think they’re an important part of the healing process. Nearly everyone who emerges from divorce does so with nagging doubts about whether he or she is attractive enough, sexy enough, or charming enough to find a life mate. And there’s nothing like a good ole’ steamy rebound relationship to remind you that you’ve still got it, that you can indeed bring pleasure to another. So enjoy. Revel in this new and thrilling intimacy.

     

    Just please, please, please, don’t confuse it with love.

  • Most people emerge from divorce with the boundaries lowered. They don’t just reach out to others. They LUNGE for help, and their judgment gets clouded about which relationships are likely to have the most staying power. And again, that’s part of the recovery process.

  • Divorce can be a shock to the system to go from having a spouse — even one who hasn’t really been there for you — to truly being alone.
  • if you want to get over someone who left you feeling hurt, you go out and find someone new to replace them. This is a simple form of distraction that numbs you
  • divorce is a very traumatic and life-changing experience. You will typically be left in a very emotionally fragile state, which can lead you to make… irrational decisions.

  • The rebounder is at risk of attaching too quickly to the wrong person, and those dating a rebounder are subject to wandering into the line of fire of scatter-shot devotion.

  • Picking up after yourself is a sign of respect for those who live among you. Not doing so is a blatant sign of immaturity which indicates you simply do not understand this. No one wants to see hairs in a sink, step on toenail clippings or find food, utensils, blood, body parts or schmegma in the bathroom. If people can figure out what you’ve eaten for breakfast based on the remains left on the kitchen counter, you are being rude.
  • Put stuff away and get rid of your own mess. Common courtesy, that’s all.
