Old Friends

Today, I saw a friend that I knew a long time ago… like three years ago, and it was like looking into the past again. I didn’t see her for almost a year up to that point and it was like getting a glimpse of the past. In many ways, I think that it is a good thing to get some of those little reminders every once in awhile. It reminds us of how far we have gone and how far we still have to go. Those little reminders of the past, even if they are not direct, cause us to step back mentally and think of the good and bad times that were had in the past. For me, it was a reminder as I was releasing my latest book to think that I used to have feelings for this human being and that this human being had these feelings for me as well. That is the essence of what it means for us as humans to be humans and to have these feelings. It is those little reminders that it is okay to have good and bad feelings towards another. When you get your heart broken, it tells you that something wonderful must have happened in that time to cause that heartbreak to be so bad.
