    I'm pretty good at it. Perhaps I'm insensitive, but life is short, I don't really feel like mourning will give me any benefit.

    Seems like this is an NT, especially NTJ thing... That's something like I expected it to be.

    I'm getting better at it now; I used to be horrible (I just would flex and bend on my end to keep things intact). I think it was partly because I could never 100% say that things should end (even if I was 95% sure), and I'd keep hoping, and I'd also not want to open myself up to judgment from others.

    I'm far more prone nowadays to look at the long-term and then decide what's worth investing, and not apologizing for changing things. And if someone else disagrees, that's fine; it doesn't change what I need to do.

    “Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    I'm good at this except for romantic relationships. Friendships, ideologies, opinions, jobs, economics, easy for me to cut my losses if the argument is sound. But romance...not so much. I think that has more to do with my insecurities and fear that I won't be able to find someone else as good later because of my social shortcomings, more than it has to do with my type.

    If I feel it was a loss, I am terrible.

    I aspire to be good at it, but alas.

    Hmm... a little bit of both.

    I have faith in my abilities, and part of me always wants to believe that I've got what it takes to make things last. And I dwell in the fact that I was never given that opportunity. Unless I know *deep down inside* it was better this way - then it's like a band-aid.

    Except with death. I've never been really good with it. It's such a foreign concept to me, and I end up relating it to THE CIRCLE OF LIFE, as dumb as it sounds... I would hate to see how it would play out if it was EXTREMELY close to home, though...

    I recently left a bad relationship... We were getting distant and we could see each other less. We both agreed it would be for the best if we went our separate ways. Being 100 miles away kinda made that a bothersome relationship to start with anyways. I had no issues letting go, it only took about a week, there was no heartbreak really.

    It takes me a lot of time and a lot of internal argument and sometimes some Fi-going-crazy to decide to "cut my losses" and cut someone off --- I don't do this lightly --- but once I do, they're out. Gone. I sometimes surprise myself with how well I can do that.
