I received news today that a friend of mine would not be coming back to SL. I’ll not go in to details, the manner that this news reached me was less than good. Her departure could have been handled a lot better and she could have left SL in a more positive manner.
There’s nothing wrong with moving on, if that’s what’s right for you, that’s precisely what you should do, but there are good ways of doing it and there are bad ways of doing it. The way this friend did it hurt people, which is unfortunate.
I can’t help but feel grateful, though. Grateful that although the closure was unpleasant, although it could have been handled with grace and good will, at the very least we have closure.
So, my friend, if you’re reading this I wish you well for the future and thank you for at least letting us know you’re moving on.
