Through all of these conversations and postings I have read I have learned so much, and I have come to one very uncomfortable and disturbing conclusion...
When it comes to "Elric" I have been very selfish and manipulative. I can't go into all of the details, but I know that it is true. I have sent him an apology and now await his response.
I can only hope that I have learned from this experience and have not lost a very dear friend due to my own errors and insecurities.
Thank you all for helping me and for although inadvertently, showing me the error of my ways.
Life is about the journey and not the destination,
so what better way to know life
than to wander all the roads and paths set before you.
