I started this post by writing about a pen pal I had in high school who I wrote to for years, met a few times and finally let go because we have extreme political differences. It had the potential to be an interesting story but it just wasn’t doing it for me. Similar to the friend I let go I suppose.
We started our relationship as two 15 year old girls who liked to write letters about boys. As time went on we grew apart. Last year after I decided I no longer wanted to see her ultra-conservative updates on Facebook (anti-Muslim this….pro-Glenn Beck that) I unfriended her along with a short, curse and somewhat flippant email. It felt good having that long drawn out thing over with. Kind of like it feels to finish this post.
