Should I let them go?

About 7 years ago, I joined a message board on another site. About three years ago, I began to really feel that I didn't fit in. I think that the last time I posted was about 2 years ago. Maybe less. I confess, however, that I do go on the board to check and see how everyone is doing. These women were a part of my life for several years - I've pretty much watched their kids grow up. I don't post, just "lurk". They are moving to a new message board, which I would have to join if I want to continue to keep up with them. Part of me would like to join, but I'm afraid that they would not want to "see" me after all this time (after all, none of them have asked after me). So, I'm wondering, do I let them go? Or should I just post a hello, using the e-mail I received about the move, and see what kind of reaction I get?

  • Wouldn't hurt to see. If they don't respond, you'll know the answer.

  • I think you are being too hard on yourself. Let it go. No harm done. You are not committed to this group, you haven't posted in a long time. It's okay. I don't think anyone will think any less of you if you go away. I'm more concerned that you think they won't accept you if you pop in and say Hi. You might be right that you may not fit in with this group. Let em go.

  • Just pop in and see what happens if it's not good just walk away.

  • If you like them I think you should just pop back in and if they're friendly stay. If they ignore you hit the road and move on to a group that will appreciate you.
