Have a question that you'd like to bounce off some people here to maybe help with your decisions? If I can't help you, maybe someone else here can. Pull up a chair and chillax.
My first piece of advice is if you can make an enemy into a friend, you've just enhanced your life. Some people think that once a relationship is broken it can never be healed. IMO a broken relationship is like a broken bone. It's always stronger when it mends.
