Dennett, thank you so much for your caring and thoughtful response! I really appreciate that. I am in the process of letting go…I do feel that I should not drop out of her wedding bc that would cause a lot of extra drama that I don’t want to deal with, and I don’t want to give her a reason to truly dislike me.
Like you mentioned you did once, I too hold tight to relationships… But I really liked what you mentioned about it being more about neediness than strength in the bond. Something to remember and something to work on! Thank you again for writing your piece. Your response means a lot!
