Yes, this is it exactly! I got tired of being the only one fighting for the relationship. I was snarked at one too many times (and once by someone I Never expected to snark me!).
I’m trying to do it without rancor – for myself since the ones who’ve been let go don’t care, they probably don’t even know – but I am still struggling with the guilt of deciding that the letting go had to happen.
Ah well, as my favorite heroine says: “Tomorrow is another day.”
