I Miss People From My Past, But Know They Belong There

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 1,103 People

    It's strange to me that the ones I think of

    often are the people who have hurt me. I find myself wondering how they are and hoping they have found peace or happiness in their lives...maybe even a little of both. Why is it that the people we have every right to hate are the ones we concern ourselves with the most...

    I think I mostly miss having someone around.

    I feel like I'm alone all the time lately and have to mentally tell myself "Do not message him!" so often lately. the people I used to hang out with and talk to are just not good people for me to associate with. I know this, I also know I need to leave them alone. I just can't...

    I used to have a group of very close friends ,

    they would cheer me up on my worst days and help me get through all the bad things in life but, we were very different so little by little we stopped talking. I miss them a lot but I know that thing will never be the way they were before, we all made mistakes. I just hope...

    Footprints..

    Its like footprints, I know its a cliche'. But ever notices how beautiful a footprint made on the beach is? It's always a shame to leave it behind, but the good thing is, as you walk on you continue to make more. And along the way, someone will always admire the footprints you...

    Toxic People

    ATTENTION!  All you toxic people that were once in my life!  You are in the past for a reason!  STAY THERE.  But there is one or two of them that I miss, don't know why, but I miss them... they are better off where they are, in my past and not bothering me...

    sometimes I miss my mom.

    there's a few good memories of her trying to be a supportive and caring mom but I left her behind almost 9 years ago as I strived to become the total opposite of her.

    I was only 15 when I fell in love with one of

    my best friends, a girl like me. Even though I had considered myself straight for the longest time, I decided to take the plunge and allowed myself to be taken by her at a sleepover. From that night on, we were lovers. This lasted for little over a year, since the girl I love is...

    I wish they didn't belong in my past,

    but they revealed their true selves, showed me they weren't as concerned as I might have believed with my problems. When I needed them most they left me in their dust. My two best friends of all people, but that doesn't matter now. They're part of my past and they belong their...

    Old Friends

    I do have moments when I miss all of the friends I was once so close to but grew apart from. We shared many great times. But ultimately I realize that people outgrow one another for a reason, and it is best that they stay in the past. It doesn't mean I love them any less.

    Old Familiar Faces

    I miss a few of them. When I look behind and see all those faces, nostalgic feeling resurrects. A mix of emotion between bitterness and happiness overwhelm my heart. There is no happy goodbye. I don't nurture the past. It should only be kept as a memory. If there are words left...

    There's a school reunion in a couple of weeks,

    but it is not for me. I had great times then,but I do not especially wish to repeat them now. Similarly at university and places I have worked. I would, I suppose, like to have a chat with a couple of girls I met along the way. It would be fun x

    In The Past

    There are some people I miss from my past but I realize that they belong in my past and not my present. Just like lovers who marry, then change over time, only to find themselves living with a stranger, we all change.  Sometimes we grow closer, and sometimes we grow apart...

    I miss one of my ex best friends.

    . We always had a good time hanging out, going out clubbing, drinking, road trips etc but ever since he started taking the hardcore drug it changed everything. We don't hang out as much as before or talk. I guess it was for the best.

    Ran into an old buddy of mine from high school

    this weekend. It's nice to catch up sometimes but when people in these situations start with the talk about "getting together like old times" I have to say "no thanks" because for the most part the "old times" sucked.

    I always think.. if things didn't go the way

    they went we'd all still be best friends... Buuut things happen for a reason and I'm letting loose and I honestly could care less about them because all they do is talk bad about others. Other people like me.

    Silver And Gold

    I moved a lot as a child. Well, I suppose I should say my family moved a lot, as I was not exactly involved in the decision making process. Never in one place for more than a few months. This, along with my introverted nature, led me to not make a lot of friends as a kid. I...

    Hard To Let Go

    I've never been able to let go of the amazing people in my life. Even though life had different plans it's always hard for me to accept. I believe in life that you meet people for a reason and when it's their time to move on then it's been fulfilled. I have taken away so many...

    One Boy.

    There was a boy who came to my school in year 10 (I'm now nearly 3 years out of high school) and he was scary at first; he was new and a little bit of a loner. But everyone got to know him eventually, and our first meeting was a good one: He was smoking and I said to him "That'll...
