Recently I was contacted by a very old and dear friend. The time that has gone by is well over the limit of time that anyone should wait to get in contact with a friend of such standings. I can hardly believe that after 15 years I was back in contact with this person. That seems like a long time to go with out talking to someone then all of a sudden BAM they are back in your life just like that.
Seems that this friend (yes they must remain undisclosed for safety’s sake) has been thinking about me in the same ways that I was thinking about them.
I recently have had this person on my mind a great deal. Seems like a little bit of a coincidence but that’s not as important as the BIG Question!?!?!?
I often asked myself that if I were to get in contact with any of my friends from childhood if I would want to or be able to reconnect with them. Honestly I still haven’t a good answer for that question.
You would think that if you had the opportunity to get in touch with someone that you were really close to that you would jump at the chance right? Well what if there was a bit of bad blood surrounding the situation at the time of last contact or what if you just lost contact with that person because you moved or they moved out of reach for everyday contact?
In this case is the moving and distance as well as age and ability to connect across the continent.
I’m very glad that my buddy got in touch with me but I want to consult the higher intelligence on this one. What do you think? Is this doomed right from the start or is there a good chance for a good or at least pleasant reconnection?
Guess where they found me …….. Guess!! A PAID SEARCH site that tells a little more that I had hoped would ever be available about my life. THAT is the scary part of this all. The site she used TOLD ALL even down to possible roommates that I may have had over the years. How does anyone know that really? Kinda I get it but DAMN that is some crazy stuff. It’s not so private out there after all now is it?
