Disconnect works, in many situations. It makes you think, or doesn’t. It gives you space, a little breath too. It heals mostly.
After time it can hurt, when you remember the good times and how unavailable the other person is to you now. Unavailable in a sense that you need a lot of courage, energy, to try to connect with them again. Is it worth it? Remains unknown.
An ex lover or an ex friend.
I find trying once at least will be worth the effort as equal as to what that person once meant to you beyond temporary agitated reasons that caused the disconnect then.
I think if you can forgive or if you are sorry then you must say it as well. Someday.
I decided I want to try.
