Burn your bridges-To eliminate any possibility of a retreat to a former position. To completely sever ones relationship/s Im curious as to see what everyones thoughts on this matter is. When do you know enough is enough? I usually let the relationship severe itself because i am more the passive aggressive type... until recently i have been thinking about initiating such a drastic act because it may be the best possible solution as oppose to not initiating it. For instance in a relationship with a girl... i allow them to severe it for us... i dont do it because im thinking about the girls feelings first. I want to take most of the burden of the feelings that come as a result of the burning of the bridge.... i.e. the person doing the dumping will feel better then the person being dumped on. This is a system i use in order to make the other party feel the least possible hurt and to build up my internal strength and or tolerance. However I have been told recently that I may be actually doing more damage to the other party. What are your thoughts on the generals of this post or the detail sistuation i just laid out?
