It's a rare occurence if it ever happens. Though I do tend to forget about some bridges I've built

I've learned to cut the people out of my life that cause me more harm than good. I've gotten tired of "dealing" with people and honestly I feel like it'd make me fake if I'd try to keep them around just because. So if someone gets to the point that I have to "deal" with them, I just let them know that we're done and that I'm moving on.

It doesn't have to be blown out of proportion or dramatic or anything. They usually understand.

Just my two cents.

As much as I hate to admit it, burning bridges became quite easy for me. I think I just have gotten used to it because of my job. At first it sucks but just like a doctor who gets used to seeing dead people a lot, It seems easy to let go of the friends i make now a days.

Apart from some people in school who I don't talk to anymore, there was only one kid I ever stopped being friends with because he was a bit loopy (and not in the fun way).

I can safely say that I haven't burned any bridges in the past 3-4 years. Sometimes they just fade away. Back when I did, it still wasn't something I would call "burning". I generally don't get into fights or arguments, I just gradually stop talking to them until they get the point.

I have burned a number of bridges is my lifetime, not just with people per-say. In hindsight, it is really easy to when they are one-sided relationships.

It's not me, it's them.

It's not my fault that I'm not popular.

I never personally seek to antagonize someone who has done me wrong.
I simply cut them out of my life.
I don't need those kinds of people around me.

If I have unintentionally hurt someone, I will apologize.
If someone realizes their fault, and apologizes, I will forgive them.

Don't burn bridges, leave it alone and it will fall down on its own.

Burning bridges is difficult for me, because I don't like having to be the bad guy and hurting other people's feelings. So I don't burn a lot of bridges, but I have let quite a few of them fall apart on their own.

Professionally, never. The world is a small place and you can get ahead from networking alone. You never know where you might find yourself in the future and you don't want someone from your past to stifle and opportunities that may come your way.

on a personal level, I have burned a few, but never without a good reason. i am not petty or spiteful. and i give people more than a handful of chances to show me their character. i always try to find the best in people and sometimes there are some individuals who just aren't good people. if i have distanced myself or just straight up cut ties from people, it's because I felt that it was better for me to not have those people in my life.

a good example are a few of my college friends. in those days I was a huge coke head and when I decided that I had to quit, my so called "friends" kept trying to pull me back into it. in the end they didn't respect my decision and they just wanted to continue to push their addictions onto me to validate what they were doing. it was best for me to just drop those people from my life.

I try to avoid it when I can, but if it happens, it happens.
