AM I THE ONLY ONE???

I think my Mother raised me too independent that I can pretty much easily cut ties with anyone as though they never existed in my life.  I dont know what it is, it is not that I dont love/loved them or enjoyed them being a part of my life, but I can still just end any relationship with ease even after 10+ years.  I even went over 2 months without any communication with my Mother and my father died never knowing he had any grandchildren.

I am empathetic though such as if someone suffers a loss, i feel it as if it were nearly my own.

Anybody else?

I can cut ties easily.

If someone suffers a loss, I feel sympathy.

I do this.. I'm an Army brat and had to do it a lot growing up.  I'm actually horrible at maintaining friendships. 

I do feel a lot of empathy.. but it depends on the situation.

I am the same way. I can drop anyone and keep moving on. I do not feel empathy though.

My mother and father both walked out on my siblings and I so its easy for all of us to cut ties with people, like if a friend and I get into a serious argument I will just move on.  I really hate drama though so maybe that is a reason I move on so fast.

I am like that. Although I would still think of the person from time to time and wonder about them.

My father abandoned us as pre teens and teenagers. This helped me become this way imo.

I am more sympathetic though.

:)  No.  Are you asking because of the username?  If you are, you are the second person to think ang = Angie.. lol.  (It's actually a funky way of spelling anxiety.)

I have no problems cutting ties with anyone either. If someone I know is toxic or hurtful towards me then I just walk away. I do not stick around and nor do I invite them into my life any longer. You know the saying...fool me once.
