Life: renting vs. owning

In the last couple of months of 2005, I had a major friendship end, which is one of those things that I know happens in life, and so it goes. What was unusual, for me, about the end of this relationship was that it was acrimonious. This is very much not my style and it's been a big part of what I've been mulling over since then. I'm used to the ebbs and flows of relationships, and, in fact, I've bent over backwards to avoid ending relationships in a fight -- so much so that I'm not sure this approach is actually the most useful/productive to myself. In this case, the choice was rather out of my hands, so it's been a lot to consider, evaluate and flesh out in order to process it.
