they have all sorts of excuses. bad memory. no time. slipped their minds. lost phone number. what they really want to say, but do not is: i have no interest in talking to you.
ok, i get that. the loss of interest. it happens all the time. we change. what was an amazing personality 5,10,15 years ago is not so amazing today – with no fault on either side.
what i do not get is the inability to say so – to honestly and frankly admit to this loss of interest to oneself and to the other. to let the other go. to move on in decency and honesty.
