Example text

And it hurt, it literally hurt my head physically. Later I was to learn about Festinger’s (1957) theory of cognitive dissonance which helped me understand the experience. It also helped me later to endure the same experience when I was developing my own theory: holding it together, discovering something that did not make sense and experiencing a similar pain as it all fell apart.
