What am I to them?

I’ve been thinking a lot about my classmates from my K12 schooling. I don’t know why, but every now and then I remember someone and I always wonder what is going on in their lives. Like today, I was thinking about a girl who was in quite a few of my classes in high school, disappeared for most of senior year, but came back and happened to walk with me at graduation.

It makes me wonder if any of my acquaintances ever randomly think about me. Or any of the people who used to be my friends for that matter. Do they ever just wonder, “What has she been up to?”?

In the past year, I have extensively narrowed down my “friends” on social media, so if you are one of the 70 or so friends I have, you must mean quite a bit to me.  It means that I still wonder about your life and how things are going for you. It means every now and then I wish you would randomly send me a message to let me know you are thinking about me. I would send you a message, but my fear of being annoying or a burden often stops me from reaching out to you.

To my readers, I ask of you this:

Reach out to someone you have lost contact with. If possible, ask if they want to meet up one day and just see how it goes. Even if it ends up that you have grown apart, you can still have polite conversation.

That is all for now.
