Reverb10: Day 5 – Let Go

By letting it go it all gets done. The world is won by those who let it go. But when you try and try, the world is beyond the winning.
— Lao Tzu

Today’s prompt is another tough one:

What (or whom) did you let go of this year? Why? (Author: Alice Bradley)

The first thing that came to my mind this morning when I read this prompt was a person I’ve recently cut out of my virtual social circle.  I expect she hasn’t noticed, and if she has, I assume she doesn’t care, which is the reason I decided to cut ties to begin with.  I don’t know what I did, but she stopped responding to any kind of contact from me some time ago, and I’ve spent way more time than I should have trying to figure out why.  The bottom line is, the relationship was one-sided, except when it suited her, and that isn’t ok with me.

  1. Virtual friends are complicated, I think. I have a hard time knowing what friendahips are real in that world and what level of pursuit of those relationships is normal and what is stalkery. Does that make any sense?

    Her loss. Truly.

  2. So it’s not just me this had happened to? I don’t know if that’s good or bad. And Lydia, what you said absolutely makes sense. With this person, though, although our friendship was largely virtual, we had met a few times in person and really hit it off. I don’t understand what happened, but I am done worrying about it.

Chime in!
