Thanks for the kind words, my friend! I’m SO glad my thoughts proved helpful.
In my mind this is the best possible outcome: you were able to be clear and kind. You feel good about the way you handled the situation and feel even MORE validated about your decision after his response. (FWIW, I thought he was pretty cool about it, too.)
Now…you’re done! That was a clean give-and-take by both of you. No further responses since you want to move on from him.
Time for you to continue to focus on you, your fam, your next projects, and next potential guy.
Thanks for entrusting me with this part of your life, Fierce Force 💃🏼!
