I shouldn't have posted this here.  Sorry but I felt that removing it would be best.

Knowing others is intelligence;
knowing yourself is true wisdom.
Mastering others is strength;
mastering yourself is true power.
Failure is not in falling down,
but the staying down

I'm sorry but I felt I needed to remove what I posted. I shouldn't have addressed this issue in that manner.

Hey Dan...

               Situations like this are never EASY.  I'm glad you're seeing it in a positive manner.  There are some roads we must walk alone...and although it's "for the best"...that doesn't make it any less painful.  Hang in there, Good Buddy! :-*

It is difficult at best to carry anyone who has problems of any kind, physical or mental, especially if the burden is on you more than they, which is usually the case.  Be free, fly!  Find yourself again...

Free is wonderful!

But, I've got you beat. I'm free AND easy!  ;D

Seriously though, I am very glad this person has shuffled out of your life.

Time for Dan to make Dan his #1 priority.   Makes me think about a song from one of my favorite groups the Violent Femmes - I'm Free

I'm free and I'm happy
I am free from your hatred
I've parted from the part
that I participated in
so I'm free it was easy
I know nothing of your hatred
I've known and shone the light
and the darkness abated
so I'm free
run skip jump play
my little boy is happy
look he's smiling because
he knows no fear... hear...
my mommy's calling me
and I'm running thru the fields
because I'm free...
every day in every way
I'm getting better and better and better
and better and better and better, etc
because there's no fear... here why
I can't tell you now cause
I'm runnin through the woods
and I just jumped a little bit higher...
cause I'm free
and that's the way he created me to be
I have turned from your hatred
I turned on the light
and there was nothing there that waited to get me
this ain't a song about that this is a song about this
