Like the title says it is hard to leave certain situations without a sense of “loss” in ones heart. I just recently(today) dropped out of a group/website because the direction was changing and IMO not for the better. I have for the most part practiced what I call TimISM which can be summed up by saying “A true champion stands alone” in that one must see his own way and triumph/conquer his own path to see clearly as it were.
I did not leave for any other reason but it was my only VOTE, I am not an intellectual giant nor do I have some great ideas that the world or a website should stand up and applaud me, I am simply Tim, a husband and father and grandfather those three things shape my life. My absence may go unnoticed or my former presence may and most likely will fade away in a short time but time goes on and I see this as another step in my path.
I will miss the people for sure even those that changed the direction so that I would contemplate leaving, no grudges no hurt just time to move on. I thank those persons for giving me the opportunity to learn and hopefully teach there.
Just a short one on the taooftim 🙂
