What Caused Me to Blacklist Someone

I did something yesterday that I’ve never done before. 

I blacklisted someone from one of my social/business accounts.

Cut the cord.

I’ve never felt the need to do that.

Assumed that I never would.

So why did I do that?

Because this person pretended to be a friend.

I was happy to extend my friendship in both a personal and professional way.

Shared all kinds of information and resources.

Spent countless hours giving tips to improve her writing.

And an incredible amount of time editing a book for her,

correcting her repetitive mistakes

and improving verbs and expression.

But, once my work was done,

I was treated like a throwaway hankie.

Not treated with respect.

Sliced with a lie.

Never even thanked.

Now when her promotional materials clutter my inbox,

they cause a pang.

An “I don’t want to see this.”

I’m done.
