Difficult to let people slander us when we know some of the others will believe the twisted telling of a cherry picked story. Knowing that relationship we’ve nurtured can be torn asunder by a vindictive and hurtful person. And being willing to let it ALL go. To save the soul from being shredded by this harmful talk and story weaving.
Let us hope the days of people forming opinions based on here say and cherry picked bits of information are over, and that adults are capable and willing to form their own opinions based on actual experiences.
