Let me tell you guys a quick story:
Back in March of 2007, I had a falling out with someone that was my REALLY good friend. He was one of those people that I kept very close to me and I ran to him whenever times were rough, and vice versa. It was a situation all over a birthday dinner that just turned very ugly, very fast. In the end, we wound up not talking - 3 years years he hits up an acquaintance of mine and has him pass the message for me to hit him up.
Today was the day that I got this message and I thought, "Why not talk to him? I still miss him - a LOT!" So I proceeded to emailing him, and long story short we managed to talk everything out and put the past behind us. I would love to have him back in my life. He was an amazing friend then, and I don't see why he can't be one now. I strongly believe that in that period of time he was surrounded by people that may have influenced his decision making negatively, and that could be why things turned out the way they did. Although that may not be a good excuse for things to go the way they did, it seems to make a lot of sense to me. I'm just glad he found a way to reach out to me.
What I find sad is that there are "people" in my life now that have been for a while that can't seem to do anything but point fingers at everyone else when things go wrong. "They" are never wrong, but the world is always at fault. I want for "them" to own up to their faults and be a man/woman about theirs. Be an adult and admit that things aren't the way they were or should be. And if its something that "they" want to change, then actually work on changing them. Talk is cheap. End of story.
I feel so relieved. And I can't explain why. It's a good feeling, though. On a side note - I had an interview for Janie & Jack (the baby store...random, I know) and it went well. So I may end up there in addition to BBW. I'll keep you posted.
