Sidda, another good, wise piece. I've been going through some big relationship shifts this year, too. One thing that really bothers is me is when people text hurtful, angry, judgmental things. My therapist told me--You always have the option of not answering. Texts pop up in our lives. I try to say I would like to discuss this in person, not on text. I mean, i don't want to be texting about major life least not in in-depth, back-and-forth conversations, you know?

I'm sorry for the loss of your son. So very sorry.
