This past weekend was a weekend of memories. How many times have you gone to a wedding or an event and the people from your past were there?
Sometimes, it can be a good thing. Sometimes, it can be a difficult thing.
You find out how many people remember you and how many of those people remember the good about you.
I was lucky enough to run into my former roommate from a college I had left after my sophomore year. We had kept in touch for a while but as life happens, we just lost touch. It felt good catching up. There was definitely a reason we had been friends in the first place.
I ran into some people that I used to hang out with, some that I used to dance with. Some of the people I had just met through someone but for some reason, they actually did remember who I was. And it was funny because one of those people actually knew my husband from a completely different situation.
I also ran into a few people from my former life and from my former relationship. Luckily for me, they were kind and didn’t treat me like I was the bad guy for leaving that relationship. At one point, I had a good friendship with them so it was a relief to know that we could at least catch up in a positive way regardless of whether we would ever resume that friendship.
It was a weekend that gives me hope for resuming and continuing a few friendships that I had just lost touch with.
It was a good weekend.
