Q – So why did you and the band split up Robbie?
A – Well .. I don’t know … musical differences I guess.
He was hardly going to say that he’s a bit of an arrogant selfish prick, tired of playing second fiddle to the more talented Gary and wanting more attention.
You could swap those names for Liam / Noel or even John / Paul.
But is it arrogant or selfish to want to move on to different things, to leave the old behind and try a new challenge?
If you’ve ever felt bored or unappreciated in a job or a relationship and wanted to move on because what you have isn’t working and you feel that you’d be more appreciated elsewhere, does that make you a bad person?
Of course it doesn’t.
The problem occurs because when you leave people behind they can feel hurt or let down in whatever context you’ve split.
How many times have you seen friends or family in a relationship that’s broken or stale and it goes on like that for a while because they care about what they had and have a lot of time invested in each other. But eventually something has to give.
