30 days of Truth: Days 9 and 10

Day 09: Someone you didn’t want to let go, but just drifted.

This isn’t one person. It’s a group. Maybe more of a time. But we were all together. And it felt fun, exciting and safe.
We never worried. We all showed up and had fun.
Then over time, it slipped away.
And it wasn’t a conscious choice to go. It was just life. Marriage, moving, grandkids, sickness. 
And yes, we chat and see each other when we can, but there are times, times when I wish for more of those nights. I don’t want to go back exactly. I guess it just makes me sad sometimes.

Day 10: Someone you need to let go, or wish you didn’t know.

I can’t think of anyone at the moment. At this point, I’ve distanced myself from those that are well, toxic, as they say. The people that I have in my life are there because I want them to be. Because they are wonderful, gracious, kind, the best examples of how people should be.
It wasn’t easy. But in the end my life was lighter and less stressful.
