I recently used this line on a service provider I am switching from. Such an odd line, and yet, I cannot articulate why I am switching providers. I simply don’t think we are a good fit, so this phrase captures my feelings better than anything else that comes to mind.
It feels bad to say “I just don’t think we are a fit” and yet, don’t we all recognize that this is often true? I’m not the attorney for everyone. No service provider is, and we shouldn’t seek to be either. Find the right fit and nurture them and let the others on.
If only it were easy to find that courage. It takes a lot of trust in oneself to believe we are ‘right’ and ‘justified’ in moving on.
