If a new love interest comes into your life, but the timing is bad, consider carefully who exactly the bad timing matters to.
If it’s for The They (all those incessantly noisy people connected to your ex), ask yourself where they fare on the scale of your right to happiness.
It’s more likely that if you took up with somebody on the day you left, 3 weeks after, 3 months, even 3 years, you’d be projected into a bubble of shame.
We all have a right to be happy, on our own if we wish or with a partner if we choose and friends, relatives and The They should be less concerned with your timeline and delighted you’ve found what you were looking for.
That is unless their sole purpose is to cause trouble, in which case, perhaps you should reassess their importance in your life and perhaps reflect it in your forthcoming Christmas card list.
