It might take time, but enough time passing usually eases my soreness and makes me let go. It's tiring being vengeful.

Yes. A lot of people think I'm "cold-hearted" for that reason lol

I only have a few friends who have similar hobbies/ideas, think like me, and can relate to me. For those, I will always want to talk to them. For the rest, there are plenty other nice people who I will meet in my lifetime. As time goes on, there will be close friends of mine who will drift apart because we changed. I don't plan on continuously talking to people who I have no connection with simply because we once did. In that way, it is sad to lose that connection and I wish that wouldn't happen, but it happens. So I don't find it hard to let go.

It depends on the person and the situation, really.

I still remember some people back in high school if thats the kind of thing you mean. Its hard to completely forget about others that were in your life. If you mean moving away and not talking / texting them anymore or something, then thats easy sauce. Or even just ignoring them. Easy sauce. :p

When it comes to close friendships/people I date~ Physically yes. Mentally no, that'll take some time.

Pretty much. If I have to consider letting someone go out of my life entirely, then there were at the very least two core issues:
1) the other person did not try to meet my effort in the relationship (platonic/romantic, say 50/50 in terms of effort)
and
2) they were a repeat offender, that is to say whatever issue we may have met, it was something that we were clearly not going to overcome even after previously attempting to go around the issue.

that is my basic criteria for getting rid of someone in my life. obviously each person is different and of course sometimes you have lingering emotions that may be difficult to face and overcome. things will solidify and become clearer as some time passes.

Yes I can, but if it's someone who I've known for a long time like a close best friend then that might be a little more difficult. Anyone else is pretty much easy to let go and move on.

Yes kinda, it's mainly down to whether you had a emotional tether to that person through relationship/friendship or whatever, mainly with friends and work it doesn't bother me too much, sometimes It just has to be that way.

Relationships can be more difficult because you share and take things to another level of living with that person so can be a bit more difficult then.

Depends on the person. I really try not to get too attached to my friends. So if any of my current friends decided that I wasn't their friend anymore I probably wouldn't care since we weren't that close. But family is a whole different story.
