Kind Of? Well This Is Interesting.One year ago, I would have said "hell yes! That would be a nightmare" but now that I'm a bit more at ease with myself, it doesn't bother me too much.
Someone I used to know a long, long time ago and who I haven't spoken to since secondary school just sent me a message on facebook. She saw me in the highstreet with my boyfriend and beeped at me. I jumped and looked as though I'd seen a ghost. Not too far from the truth really :P
I used to be a total pushover and she used to push me around. For years and years I stuck by her though, because it was one of those "friendship groups" that you can't really leave. It's..sticky. If you've ever been in one, you'll know what I mean. If not, then it will be hard to understand. She was the "leader" of the group. It's weird.
But now? The older people get, the more they seek out people they can connect with. Well, the ones that can sense that they need more connections otherwise they will be left behind that is. That's because after school, that's exactly what happens. You get left behind. The world is a lonely place. Or maybe that's just me and I'm reading too far into it.
However, it is a bit weird that she wants to contact me after all this time. I don't really miss her. That's harsh but true. However, it will be interesting to see what kind of person she is now.
As I've grown older, I've come to appreciate more the value of relationships. I'm open to everything now.
