I saw this on tumblr and it really says it all for me:
“We live in an age where we feel guilt whenever we have to cut someone off but the reality is that some relationships do need to die, some people do need to be unfollowed and defriended. We aren’t meant to be this tethered to the people in our past. The Internet mandates that we don’t burn bridges and keep everyone around like relics but those expectations are unrealistic and unhealthy. Simply put, we don’t need to know what everyone else is up to. We’re allowed to be choosy about who we surround ourselves with online and in real life, even if it might hurt people’s feelings.”
The rest of the post above can be found here. It is worth the read. It made me feel better about dropping off a few bags that became too much for me to carry. If you need to let folks go as well it might make you feel better too.
