    I’ve been “ghosted” more than once. On an emotional level, I don’t make the depth of connection with anyone that I used to. We’re ultimately responsible for ourselves and those to whom we are truly morally obligated. The world gets older and more sad every year. I suspect this has been going on since we came down out of the trees.

      It makes it hard when someone you trusted like that turns out to not be the friend you thought they were, doesn’t it? But you’re right. Of everyone on earth, my first obligation is to my kids – and that’s never going to change.

    That’s one of the hardest things to do–to let go when you know the relationship is all one sided and you’re only being used. Even though you do let go, it’s hard not to feel guilty. Knowing something is the right thing to do and feeling it are two different things. I’ve had to do this on several occasions. It’s never easy to do. 🙁

      Exactly, Ruth. For a long time, it was a good friendship, and even for a while after, I was open to fixing things – even though I hadn’t been the one to break them. But yeah, there just comes a point when you have to walk away. I’ll admit I don’t like feeling guilty, but I don’t feel quite as guilty now as I thought I would. The more I’ve thought about it it, the more I am reminded that I did try to salvage things but like any relationship, friendships can only die when it’s not a two-way street. I’m sorry you’ve been in this position before. It pretty much sucks. 🙁
