At 28, this place of heartbreak feels so familiar, like an old scar, tingly to the touch. Yes, I've been here before. No, it isn't less painful. No, it isn't less sad. But, yes, I do know my way around this place, and I now know how to gently make my way home.

That's why it's only right that when it's our turn to sever ties, we do it thoughtfully, taking the high road whenever possible.
