I routinely advise to not burn bridges.
But sometimes you just have to burn that bridge. That person may be making choices in life that jeopardize your case, your children’s safety and your freedom. Burn that bridge.
Sometimes that person makes promise after promise. It’s what you need and want to hear, but they don’t follow through. You inquire, plead and implore, they dodge, make excuse and ignore. The bridge is burning.
Ultimately, life is about relationships. Evaluate your “friends” by how they treat you and those that can’t help themselves.
