We do not fully understand what goes on in someone’s life until that person allows us to be a part of their life. We only make ourselves look foolish by making absurd assumptions and/or listening to mindless hear says of someone. Grown ups that resort to the silent treatment don’t want to know the truth, they’d rather be comforted by the stories. When people stoop to that level, you remove them from your circle. Sometimes distance is better than proving a point.
