Do Tell: What's the Biggest Bridge You've Ever Burned?

Do Tell: What's the Biggest Bridge You've Ever Burned?






I have been called feisty quite a few times in my life, but with age, I now know when to bite my tongue! When people speak out of place, they sometimes don't know the damage they are causing -- but on the flip side, sometimes they do. It's so easy to tick people off, especially those who are overly sensitive or ones that hold grudges, so ladies, do tell, what is the biggest bridge you have ever burned?

I was in therapy for a short while after my divorce. The biggest lesson I learned is that there are toxic relationships in our lives from time to time. If that relationship offers no positives to your life, the need then arises to rid yourself of that toxin. I tried a lot of things with my M-I-L and nothing worked. My only sin was that I fell in love with her son and he, lucky for me, adored me. This was totally unacceptable to her because no one is good enough for him and she wants him to remain single and live home with her! She's off her rocker if you ask me and there was no way to win her over. Then she made a fatal error in judgement one day. She asked my husband to stop over to talk and when he got there she went into a full blown assault on my bad points and why he should dump me. I saw the flames from that bridge burning from two towns away!!!! I didn't have to burn it, my husband had had enough! I for the most part keep an open mind in the event one day he forgives her and invites her back into our life. It is his mother after all.

Hmmm I don't think I've ever entirely ended a relationship with anyone. Well I guess my BF in 10th grade, we're still friends but at the time we had a fight and all hell broke loose and we didn't talk again for 2 month until another friend stuck us in bathroom stall together. She had just gotten a boyfriend and the way it happened we were on a trip with my whole class, and she didn't sleep in my room the 1st night and she actually mad eout with this guy in our class. The enx day everyone was talking about it and I kept defending her saying it wasn't true, she actually went back to out room took a shower talked to me and our other bff, we had breakfast together and she couldn't say anything? Anyway we kept fighting over her stupid relationship with that guy, we were all being very immature, and then on the next to last day of the schoolyear we had a party and she had a fight with the guy anyway the thing is I ended up finding out she wasn't a virgin either. Somehow we got into a fight and that was it. Or this kid who had a crush on me for like 2 years and we went to germany on an exchange trip and he's one of those suffocating people, and basically I told him to go to hell because nobody liked him. he came back 6 months later and we've been friends againe ver since. Wow this is all immature stuff.. Then there is my dad who I haven't burnt bridges with just because I live under his roof, but I once blew up on him and basically told him he was an asshole who didn't deserve anything good, and that he had never been a father to me, just the guy who paid for food and school.

The biggest regret of my life is in burning the bridge with my friend Dan. He offered me a place to stay when I'd been kicked out, I moved down to LA to be with him. I'd say we had something indefineable...but I ruined it with game playing. I was insecure and in a rough place at the time. I know I hurt him really badly. He acted like we'd still be friends but he's cut off all contact with me since so I guess I hurt him even more than I thought. He kickd me out with no where to go in the middle of LA, no friends, no resources. I still dont know if I earned that one, but I do know it was awful....

misskimmy, i see where you are coming from on the female interaction thing. I have very few female friends, because I find girls impossible to trust. I get along soooo much with better wih guys. You don't have to worry bout a guy friend causing drama in your life or being two-faced. Girls live for the drama, atleast the ones I've come across.

The worst bridge was with my "best friend" and everyone else I hung out with during my freshman year in college. There was a guy that I liked and was dating and she knew him before I met him. I asked her if she was interested in him when I started talking to him and she told me no. I was talking to this guy for a couple of months and then I moved back home because I got a summer job. While I was gone, I was unable to get a hold of either my friend and the guy I was talking (red flag). I didn't know what to think because I was soooo naive back then. Well, a week before I went back to school, the guy I was "dating" called me at 1am to tell me that he was dating my best friend and that he only saw me as a friend. My "best friend" called me the next day only after he told her that he talked to me about their relationship. She very much wanted for us to stay friends so I agreed however the sight of them upset me very much and they lied about being an actual couple (no surprise there) so I decided that I wanted nothing to do with them. I stopped answering their calls and emails, and I changed my IM username so neither they or any of our neutral friends could contact me. My other friends were not very supportive of my feelings either which was why they were cut off too. So for about 4 months, I isolated myself, talking to no one but family, my roommate and my friends from back home. I finally made new friends by joining a couple of organizations on campus the following semester however my college experience was tarnished because I trusted almost no one and did not let people get close. The last I saw them was a month before I graduated, two years later, and they were still a happy couple.Burning those bridges had a great impact in my life and future interactions with people. I have difficulty interacting with other women and I did not bring my female friends around anyone I dated. If someone screwed up, even for minor things, I wanted nothing to do with them. I allowed guys to treat me poorly and run over me because I figured "At least I had their attention and they wouldn't leave me for another girl", which they did in most cases. About a year ago I had enough of all this so I decided to not let guys treat me like crap and learn how to forgive people for their mistakes. I have made a lot of progress however I still have a ways to go (interacting with other women for extended periods of time, which still annoys me lol) but I'm in a much better situation than I was five years ago. So that's my bridge burning...

I'm the type of person that strongly believes in the phrase, "Screw me over once, it's your fault; screw me over twice it's MY fault." Therefore, I have burnt a couple bridges. The biggest was with a girl I grew up with, she lived in the house behind mine, and we'd been friends since junior high. Of course, with girls, 3 is a crowd. There is always going to be drama until its back down to just 2. Well, the 3rd was conniving (sp?), and she would make the other girl do messed up things to try to mess up my life, and cause drama from afar, so that she could be in her good graces. Well, my bf and I gave the longtime friend a ride home one night. A week later, she showed up at my house, knowing I wasn't there and had a conversation with my mom (everyone gets along with my mom) about how my bf hit on her. The thing was, the story was sooo pathetic it wasn't even believable, and even if it was, it's too ridiculous to be mad at my man. She accused my bf of "grabbing her hand" when he was letting her out of the car. Seeing how he had to push the seat he was sitting in up, by a lever in the backseat, to allow her out, there was a possibility that he may have bumped her hand. Anyways, it was obviously a bullshit story. My mom even said she was trying to cause drama, and she could hear the other girl's car sitting in front of the house, she was obviously put up to it.I don't hear from this girl for over a week, and when she finally does call she's all astonished and pissed off that I don't believe her. First off, if it was true, you tell me, not my mom so that she can be involved and add her 2 cents to the situation. Second of all, if it was even a remotely true story, she would've called the next day to check on everything. I havn't talked to her in over 3 years, and after I did burn that bridge, I began learning very negative things about her. How she'd go to concerts and do sexual favors for beer. Or just steal from friends of ours. Basically, she was not the type of person I wish to keep in my life. Had I known what type of person she truly was, we never would've had a friendship to start with.Some of ya'll may say, how dare I not believe someone who was supposed to my best friend over my man. But, you really have to be in the situation to understand. She was sooooo full of shit.

Haven't really burned bridges, but one is teetering dangerously close to burning with my mother in law. She just can't seem to keep her mouth shut and ask personal questions about MY family members when I've explicitly and tactfully said I don't want to speak with her about it. She seems to believe that everything is her business and needs no excuse to tell me what I should be doing, cooking and cleaning for my husband. My husband has even told her how much she doesn't want her talking about these things with me but it doesn't seem to matter. The last time she came for a visit, she persisted and persisted until the point I actually yelled at her and slammed the bedroom door in her face. My husband and her had a screaming match in the kitchen about her incredible need to know things that are not her business. I haven't really spoken to her since then, cause I can't be bothered being yelled at because my husband hasn't called her in a couple days, and I plan on being drunk as a skunk the next time she comes for a visit so I won't care that she's here. It's sad but we are just fundamentally different people who do not get along in any which way. Thank god we live over 500kms apart.

A little over three years ago, on my 30th birthday, I packed my SUV with as many of my personal belongings that I could and left my husband of 4 years. I drove from Vermont to Vegas by myself within 3 days. That was a pretty big bridge.

I've burned 2 major bridges in my life and can think of one more I'd like to burn, The first was with a woman who was supposedly my friend. You know the type, the Queen Bee to which all other females must follow and obey her. AND she thinks she's God's gift to men. It's her way or no way and if you dare to question her she comes down on you like a ton of bricks!!! Her name was Pattie and she was married and carrying on several affairs at the same time. As her friend you HAD to cover for her to stay in her good graces!!! Anyway, she accidentally introduced me to who is now my husband and at the time he was separated from another shewolf!!! To my face she was supportive but one day at work I walked in on her discussing me and my guy and she was saying the most vile things. When she turned around she was caught off guard and all I said was, " be afraid...I know soooo much dirt about you! Be very afraid." Then I never spoke to her again unless it was work related. The other bridge I burned was with a sister who's major problem with me was that I was born first! how can you even rationally interact with someone who says that. "I want to be the oldest!!" And she said it during and argument when I was 36 and she was 34?????!!! When my mom died she locked me and my other sister out of the house and wouldn't allow us to get anything sentimental out of the house. She sold things at a garage sale and we only got entry once we got a lawyer to protect our interests. She is dead to me now. She also left her husband and children to be with a man with "power." Like I said she's dead to me. The bridge I'd like to burn is with my ex husband. But to be honest I'm afraid of him still and don't care to have contact to finally burn that bridge. He was abusive to me and my son and will never forgive him. The bad parts of that past life are still with me. Let's just say I haven't burned that bridge, I've detoured around it. I'm VERY happily married now to that guy the other shewolf introduced me to. And my son looks at him as his only dad not his stepdad.

my best friend yesterday, so i'm not sure if it will work out or not. to make an extremely long story short, she doesn't like my bf and picks fights with him. then she tries to play it off like she is the victim and he attacks her for no reason. i called her out on it and told her that it takes two to fight and i know that she provokes him. she then kicked me out of her car in the parking lot of a restaurant half a mile away from my house. i'm sad about it, but pretty much all of my other friends have said i'm better off without her. it's a crappy way to end things.

My parents. They're uber-conservative Christians, and I got pregnant at nineteen. They blamed my boyfriend for everything (even said he must have drugged me or gotten me drunk, because THEIR little girl would NEVER have sex!). Well, that boyfriend became my husband, one child became two, our 5th anniversary just passed in July, and we're very happy together and doing well in life- which my parents can't stand. They told me to ditch the guy and give my baby up for adoption, because I wouldn't make a good mother. BUT- my parents are both very ill, and my father's condition has become terminal, so at the urging of my husband (the irony!), I'm going to visit them this weekend and see how good I am at bridge re-construction.

Probably the girl that I considered my best friend through most of our high school years and quite a while afterward. While she was nice and all, she always wanted something from me and never thought twice about taking advantage of my inability to say no to people. She picked the most ignorant, arrogant bastards to date.. one who spent several weeks in jail for possession of drugs and one who was already in prison for robbery! For some reason (probably because her mother would freak) they couldn't call her from jail/prison so she would get them to call my house.. which meant she was camped out there all the time. She asked me to lie to my mother and go with her (on a 3 hour drive) to see one of them in prison. I said no obviously! Also she never knocked when she came over, she just walked right in. Even when my bf stayed over and we were still asleep in the morning, she would just waltz right into my bedroom or bang on the door when I started locking it. It's like she had no sense of personal boundaries at all! The only reason it took me so long to get rid of her is because she was the type of person who would hurt or cut themselves when someone upset them or to get attention, and I felt sorry for her until it just reached the boiling point and I cut off all communication with her completely.

Blair I think she is being petty and stupid. She needs to let your family start some of your own traditions. I know I burned a bridge with a recruiter/head hunter in my industry. He sent me an e-mail asking me if I knew anyone for a job that they had and I told him that I was sorry I don't and currently I am more interested in finding myself a permanent position. So I am sure my resume went into the trash file but it is so frustrating to be looking for a job and get excited to see an e-mail from a recruiter only to be asked if we know someone that would be interested.

The only bridge I've burned is with my sister-in-law. It's a long story so I'll just give you the gist of it. When we first moved here (AZ from NC) we stayed with her for not even 24 hours before her and my husband got into a huge fight. During the fight, I took our children out of distance so they couldn't see/ hear what was going on. She let her children stay and watch the screaming/cussing match. As her three year old is standing there she picks up a bag of Cheeto's and tries to hand them to my husband, so he says she can have them as he walks away. So my sister-in-law grabs the bag from her child and chucks them at my husband and says, "No, we don't f***ing want them." I lost all respect for her right there. We made up after a few weeks, then Christmas came. We were expected to go to her house on Christmas eve and stay there until about ten-ish (we live an hour apart). We said, we'll stay till about seven and come home so we could go look at lights and watch The Polar Express and drink hot cocoa and put the kids in bed so we can set things up for the morning. (This was our first Christmas together) We told her we wanted to start making our own traditions, she got furious because she couldn't understand why we couldn't make her traditions, ours. Multiple other things have happened since then and she and I are no longer on speaking terms. My husband still talks to her, as I would expect him to, that is his sister and all. It makes for an eventful holiday season as we are expecting to do the holidays with them. Do you all think I am wrong for any of this? Of course you don't get both sides but what do you think?

I have burned a lot of bridges, and usually on purpose in order to protect myself from being hurt again. Basically, if any person that I considered a friend hurt my feelings or did something that I viewed as a character flaw, I would write them off. I was screwed over a lot when I was younger so I learned not to trust people. My best friend in high school stopped being my friend because we were dating best friends and when it didn’t work out with my guy and she was still with her guy, she decided that we couldn’t be friends anymore. Another close friend from high school lived with this guy who was a drug addict and he verbally abused her. She wanted out but couldn’t afford to live on her own so I said we could move into an apartment together (this was all after high school or course). They never broke up and there was always drama, and three months after we started living together she tried to break up with him (again), and he tried to kill himself in our apartment by slicing his neck with a butcher knife. I moved out and she said that I wasn’t honoring our six month lease, leaving her high and dry, and while I was gone at school one day before I actually did move, she stole my tv, vcr, computer, and printer, and said that I could consider it payment for the next three months of rent. I couldn’t believe it. I think the worst one was my maid of honor. She was my closest friend at the time, the wife of the pastor of our church, who also married us. She is older than I am and has a daughter that I used to baby-sit. When we got married her daughter was like 12 (around that age), and a junior bridesmaid in our wedding. I was working and my husband was going to college. So her daughter totally liked my (new) husband. Which I was okay with, I think it’s good for young girls to have a strong male other than their dad to look up to. What I’m not okay with is her calling him after she got home from school to talk, writing him “notes,” and holding his arm/hand at church. When I mentioned it to him, he was totally oblivious, just thinking it was this little girl that I used to baby-sit. But after I pointed out everything, he was like, yeah, this is bad. So we went to her mom, my friend, the lady who was the maid of honor in our wedding, and said that we are concerned that her daughter was getting too close and we didn’t want her to get hurt feelings in the end. My friend like totally blew up and said that I was being overly jealous and my husband didn’t really feel the same way, I had forced him to come say these things and she’s just a little girl. I was shocked. She went and told her daughter that I didn’t want her talking, touching, or even looking at my husband and she was really hurt by the entire thing. It was awful. Then like a year later I tried to make amends to the daughter and the mom lied to me about something, so I was like forget it. Those are the people who I feel really screwed me. There are more, smaller, ones. These are the majors. Yeah, so I pretty much don’t have any friends. I will meet someone, get to know them a little bit, and I usually find their fatal flaw pretty quickly and then phase them out. I’m sure it’s not the healthiest way to live, and I’m sure I’m missing out on some really great people, but I don’t get hurt anymore. We’ve been seeing a therapist for the last 18 months for some marriage problems at first but now we focus on improving ourselves, which also makes us better spouses. In going to these sessions, I have grown (a little) and I have chosen to overlook two people’s fatal flaws and remain their friends. One friend is a really good friend, and the other one really isn’t but I’m still trying and it makes me feel like a better person. :) As far as work goes, though, I’ve worked for the same company for 9 years, never burned a bridge with the company, although I have phased out work friends. I’m sure they think I’m a b!tch.
