Everyone has that line of demons behind them, you know. It's tempting to try to cut them loose, but the attempt is all too likely to take a number and join them. What earns people's true respect isn't being without flaws. It's manning up and wearing your name proudly anyway.

That said, you can sometimes go explore somewhere new for a while that you couldn't with your past associations on your heels. You just have to remember that they will catch up, so the new thing's permanence had better not depend on their permanent absence.

Or maybe you shouldn't trust this advice from someone who's lived in the same city all her life.

I've had success cutting cutting things off before. Few people now know anything about who I was in high school. Granted nobody from high school exists in my life now.

But we: high school. Primordial human beings, the lot of them.
