What if we had an insurance policy for breakups? Well, for one thing, the biggest fear in a person’s life will be done away with Loneliness.
If you think about it, why does a person grieve so when his/her girlfriend or boyfriend breaks up with them? When I think about it, it is mostly because I keep fixating on the time I spent on that relationship, which turned out to be a waste of time. Yeah of course I suffered the loss of a dear person, but mostly it’s the realization of the loss of time that really gets me.
If there were an insurance policy for breakups, which would, perhaps, guarantee the compensation for all this heartbreak, I would be able to eliminate the staying at home-crying-eating like a panda phase.
This got me thinking….
What would be the scenarios if such an insurance policy existed? Let’s imagine.
#1. Replacement for Ex
Goodbye heartache! Goodbye worries of a lonely future! After a breakup, when we think of all the time that was wasted, we cry more. But if we could be assured that in case that the person we thought was our soulmate doesn’t reciprocate, we’ll most definitely get a new one, most of the heartache could be done away with.
#3. No Heartbreak
When there is an almost certain assurance that a breakup wouldn’t have a very grave impact on our lives, there will no major heartbreak. We aren’t saying that there will be zero hurt. There will be some…but we’ll still be OK, overall.
#3. No fear of dying alone
Each new heartbreak won’t be the end of the world as we know it. If the break-up insurance covers getting a new lover, every new heartbreak wouldn’t become the source of frequent paranoia of dying alone.
#4. No droughts
Yes, it’s not like it used to rain all the time you were in that relationship. But an insurance policy would protect you from a long dry spell between relationships, by fixing you immediately with a new hook-up.
#5. No pressure to stay in a meaningless relationship
Sometimes, the thought of your partner being all alone causes you to get out of a relationship that has nothing left to give. But if you had the assurance that someone will be more than happy to pick up the pieces you left, you could go ahead and get out of the bad relationship.
