For the record, I’d like to say that my post-it idea was brilliant but I’m glad I didn’t go through with it. Yes, it would have been a total rock star move but the last thing I needed was for my post-it to upstage the empty promises that brought me to my decision. I’m being totally vain but at the end of the day I didn’t want to be remembered as the asshole in this particular situation.
It was a friend of mine that said that empty promises are much worse than no promises at all since there is always a sense of deception that comes along with empty promises. In a way, I’m glad what happened did as it was within the whirlpool of lies that I was able to clearly see what I wanted and had the freedom to act on it. It’s easy to make the decision to leave when you don’t have anything left to lose.
As for leaving, I’m in the process of tying up all the loose ends but I’m finally starting to feel like the end is near. I’ve got less than 4 weeks left in Toronto and aside from dealing with the necessary tasks that come along with the closing of my house and selling off the remainder of my worldly possessions – I plan on spending as much time with the friends that gave me unconditional supported and the places (aka restaurants) that made this city a worthwhile experience in my opinion.
