he said that he had been a proactive person
successful in his endeavours and happy too
then he met her and after the initial bliss
it all went downhill because she wanted him
to change just to please her

then he walked away from the breakup

the next relationship and get on with his life
I saw him again and he was confident, refreshed and
optimistic about life
