It's hard to let go of people.
Easier it is to push them away, drive them out of your world and pretend that your paths never ran together. To ignore them, avoid them, separate out their world from yours.
But sometimes the hard way's the easier, the short way goes on longer and life's too short to take the long way around.--
A man can be happy with any woman so long as he doesn't love her.
-- Oscar Wilde
