Given the current climes amongst the people here, my family wins. No contest.
There were, of course, other reasons that influenced the decision immensely. However, I don't think this is an appropriate venue for that. The involved parties know how I feel about the situation, and I don't want to stoop to the level of mudslinging.
I wish I could say it was a good run; and despite what some might think, I do step down with something resembling regret. I don't like walking away from committments or responsibilities. The situation, however, has left me little choice. I value my sanity and my family more than I value a promise made to someone that no longer respects me.
If anyone has anything; anything at all to say to me. Please, by all means. Say it. I don't cry easily.
Have to know when to hold 'em, know when to fold 'em. Know when to walk away... know when to run.
