My Ex-Boyfriend #6 taught me:
Artistic talent is NOT the same as emotional intelligence.
How many times did I manage to miss this one?
Musicians, photographers, artists of all kinds–they’re no wiser, or emotionally together than anyone else. Even though they can belt out a gorgeous tune, or create a pretty picture, they can still be petty, insecure, and just plain retarded in relationships.
Some talents just don’t translate.
