As you go through life and get older and perhaps wiser, you realize that it is hardly ever a good idea to burn bridges. You just might need to go back across the river someday and you will have a real problem if you burned the bridge. You should consider this conduct when you go through your divorce as it applies to your children, your family, your friends, your spouse, and even your divorce attorney. There is nothing to be gained by burning a bridge. Burning a bridge takes proaction on your part that is just counterproductive. Leave the bridge alone. Just let it be. You might need or want it later and it could make you happier to just move on. So, for no other reasons is that it is not healthy for you…all that fire and all that smoke can cloud the sky and you cannot see clearly. That is it, this is all I have. As a chosen conduct for how to live your life, burning bridges is generally a bad idea.
