They’ve gone – and what we need most of all to understand is why? What is striking
is that, despite what friends and well-meaning acquaintances tell us, we already know. It
is us. We firmly and naturally assume that the explanation is primarily to do with us
and our miserable failings. They’ve gone because we weren’t good enough. They got
to know us better than almost anyone has ever done – and then, inevitably, felt horrified
by the truth. It’s not the relationship that failed: we failed. But – counterintuitively
– what seems most obvious to us in our hearts might not actually be true in reality. There
is a famous experiment in the history of psychology which pinpoints our tendency to project: that
is, to read decisive, clear explanations drawn from our minds into what are in fact ambiguous
situations in the world. The Thematic Apperception test, as it’s technically known, was developed
in the 1930s by the American psychologist Henry Murray. It presents us with images of
people – and asks us to say what’s going on in them.People tend to come to quite specific
conclusions. For example: She’d fed up with him; he’s weak and a
bit boring and she’s just told him that their relationship isn’t working and that
she’s leaving. He’s just told her they have to break up
and the reason has something to do with their sex lives. He’s not as fulfilled as he wants
to be. It seems to be about his parents. She wants
him to take more distance from them. If he doesn’t, she can’t be expected to stay
around forever… The power of the experiment derives from the
fact that the image has, by design, no precise or definite significance: they’re just actors
asked to assume certain poses. The stories and the meanings come from us. This is often
exactly what happens around our own heartbreaks. We may never actually know precisely why the
other person left us. That shouldn’t be surprising. However well we know someone,
they are never fully transparent to us. What they say may only be a part of what’s really
in their minds. Their deeper motives will remain obscure – perhaps even to them. We’re
presented with a fact – they’ve left us – and onto that we project a meaning. But
the meaning we give to that fact comes, in large part, from us. Holding onto the idea
that we don’t actually know something is an underused and powerful skill. At one of
the foundational moment of philosophy, in ancient Athens, Socrates argued that a huge
component of wisdom lies in our capacity to accept our ignorance in certain situations:
‘the wise are those who know that they don’t know’. This recognition of not-knowing,
and the reminder of our tendency to project, may be helpful in easing us away form the
more catastrophic and self-incriminating interpretations of a break up. The lover who furiously told
us they never wanted to see us again may – in the hidden recesses of their soul – have
been actually thinking: ‘I’m so sad this didn’t work out; I wish I could find a way
to make this work; you are so lovely in many ways, but there’s something desperate in
me that’s turning away from your offer of love’. The person who coldly texts us: ‘that‘s
it, I’m out’ may behind the scenes be weeping at their own sense of loss and failure
rather than (as we imagine) gleefully celebrating the end of their over-extended encounter with
us. The person who says: ‘I wish this could work but just for now I’ve got to concentrate
on my career’ might actually be quite sincere rather than (as we might darkly suppose) putting
a polite cover over their contempt for us. The acceptance of ambiguity is liberating:
we’re free to recognise that the ending wasn’t necessarily all our fault; that there
may have been forces at work other than our own inadequacy. We’re still very sad, but
the target of our misery is a little more bearable: we can focus on the deep, sorrowful
strangeness of love and loss rather than suffering an extended excoriating confrontation with
our own inadequacies.
To learn more about love try our set of cards that help answer that essential question; "Who should I be with?"
