Experienced this once. Found out the guy not only held onto his own parachute, but had caught someone else instead and hadn't said so because he "didn't want to hurt me." Glad I broke the bones rather than keep trusting an untrustworthy person.
And it was after months of silence that I realised we make better strangers than we ever did anything else. A tough and harsh realization. but a good one to have instead of holding on to something that isn't good or meant for you.
