Letting Go


I’m finally letting go of the last of a community that only leads to pain. I made the mistake of opening up to and trusting some people who thought they knew who I was, but abandoned me after I met them in person, and they saw what a panic attack can really do, despite their claims of also having anxiety. This means letting go of some good friends who never gave up on me…but it’s best for all of us if I just go.
It hurts more than I can say to let these friends go, but it’s politics in this situation. They’re in a very public position and have an image to maintain. I’m not helping them, much as I love them. It’s hard but it’s time to go, for both our sakes.
