Not an easy post to write:
In the last four and half months I’ve learned a lot about myself and a lot about others through VSoM. I am leaving because I no longer feel that I am learning. I’ve stopped putting myself out there, I’ve stop thinking about the issues as much, I’ve stopped enjoying posting and began looked at it as a chore. This is not fair to the other writers. I am grateful for the opportunity I’ve had to post and the wonderful people I’ve met in this group and from our reader response.
Thank you VSoM for being so wonderful and providing an open forum to discuss such interesting and often difficult issues. I’ll be back every day to read and comment.
