Have you ever had a person turn on you for no reason?  It might be an old friend who refuses to return your calls or fends you off when you attempt to make the usual bimonthly dinner date that’s been a fixture of your calendar for years. Of course, there are those who refuse to have anything to do with you from the start. It may even be someone in your field of endeavor and the central question usually comes down to what you have done to offend. Blaming yourself at least gives you a feeling of agency over the whims of human nature. But there's a less consoling explanation and one that has to do with your lack of importance at least to those who have shown such cosmic indifference or even contempt. You fall into a chasm occupied by the other objects and yes garbage which these individuals have tossed away. Life's short and they may simply have made an executive decision to devote themselves  to those who have made the cut. That may be a bitter pill to swallow considering the quotient of narcissism that most human beings require for their own survival. However, the explanation is often less than more since the snap judgment that has made someone write you off is usually based on only the limited data available to them at the time.
