Hugs to all of you with difficult relationships. It's a tough decision, but a good one, to make the choice to have some peace for yourself, so kudos for standing up for what you need.
The past two days haven't gone too well. Not as careful as I should be, and not taking the time to do what I should. It's been a stressful week. The tough times in my life always revolve around two main themes..."you made this bed, now you gotta lie in it" and "no good deed goes unpunished." Both of them are cleaning my clock these days. Tomorrow will be another day, though, to pull my head out of my butt!
And now that you don't have to be perfect, you can be good.
