One last attempt to shake some sense into a person I'd cared very much for was, again, ignored and so it's done. I'm done.
I realized I was hanging onto an ideal - admiring the potential and not the person (heh, imagine that, huh Divatologist? Huh, Peej?) - and, when I came to realize that and examined the person as they are I also realized I have no respect for him.
What remains is contempt...and pity without compassion.
So it's done. I'm done.
I may not have gotten the opportunity to say it to his face but I can say it here and I can say it via social media where a click of the "Unfriend" option speaks volumes.
