Woot?! Sorry to be so blunt but where did you pick this BS from?
Not needing a romantic relationship to feel good and validated as a human being is SOO different from not caring if a relationship ended or not. Of course you care! Of course it hurts when things end! The important distinction is realizing that you won't actually be destroyed if a relationship ends, because it protects you from staying in unhealthy relationships out of fear. And this goes for everyone, poly or not.
