My previous employer wants me to come work for them again. I was let go because of the pandemic, but I think the real reason I was let go is because my line manager had issues with my communication, that was the feed back he gave me after I was told I was being let go.
I don't want to work for my previous employer again even though I enjoyed it and we still have a great relationship and I am still in contact with them (i.e. the heads of the company).
How do I politely and respectfully tell my previous employer that I don't want to work for them again, without burning bridges and damaging our good relationship?
Edit: from the comments: I have been interviewing with other companies, and want to move forward. I guess it is like not wanting to get back with an ex after a breakup because meeting new people is better.
