I began starting this blog with an apology but I deleted it. I am not going to apologize or justify what I am feeling and now saying. As the move gets closer I know that I am leaving a lot of people I love behind. I also noticed that some people changed the moment we announced the move, others didn't they stayed just the same as they always had been. So I did something totally out of character, I stopped investing in relationships that felt pretty one sided. It has become quickly apparent to me that I made the right decision. Letting go of relationships that weren't healthy was a really good thing. I also see who is invested in relationships, I see who is reaching out and making it a point to maintain relationships. One sided relationships are a drag. They are exhausting and they slow you down.
I am glad that I figured this out now and not after we move and I try to keep up relationships. I think I can see pretty clearly which relationships are going to survive the move. I am sad though too that for some people the relationships didn't seem worth keep up on. I am not sure what happened. I am not going to sit here and try to figure it out either. My only regret is that I didn't figure this out sooner.
Today I am grateful for the people who not only love us and support us but invest in our relationships.
May you be blessed by one really fantastic relationship in your life.
