A smart person puts distance between people and situations that cause them pain. Most of the time when we cut people off, we have a good reason. The sad part is when they fail to realize that they gave us the scissors. It takes a very mature person to do the hard work of examining their actions and an even bigger person to admit when they did or said something they shouldn't have, but most people go for the path of least resistance and don't right their wrong. This is what often makes it necessary to cut with surgical precision. It is never easy, but sometimes it is very necessary to cut cut cut certain people out of your life. Have you ever had to do that?
