"I didn't throw him away."
"What did you do then?"
"I broke up with him."
"So you dumped him?”
“Where did you dump him?"
"…In the trash."
"So you threw him away."
"Yes, I guess you can say that."
"I don't fault you for throwing him away, he showed himself to be trash. But why don't you want to accept that you're the one that threw him away?"
"Because if I threw him away, why do I feel so worthless?"
"Two reasons, you're very good at dogging yourself out and because you have real feelings for him."
