I want to spend more time on this when I have the chance, but for now I want to throw out the question: If you were married, are you still in touch with the people who were a part of the wedding party? who attended your wedding? For those who can’t relate to that scenario, I’m talking about those people you did EVERYTHING with and shared your heart and soul to back a chunk of years ago.
I was reflecting on how dear those people once were to me and wondering why some of them aren’t in my close circle anymore. What a boob I am to have left that go to the wayside. I know it’s a two-way street but it makes me wonder how authentic it was if now I do not do more than click like a time or two on their facebook posts or if I haven’t even friended them there.
I want to know, I guess, how such strong ties dissipate without us noticing.
I have regret and wonder if I should. I think I should. I also think I should not. Relationships transpire for a reason. Sometimes that reason forges an unbreakable bond, no matter how many years between contact. Right? Or is that a bunch of hooey I’m dreaming about. Some relationships’ purpose is transient. Right? You know, yuck! I don’t like that thought. I think it speaks to the value of human beings. To me they are my everything. Yes, the world is full of stupid, stupid people (me being one of them). I still am enthralled with each one’s story. Am I just using them to better myself?
Yuck! I’m going to stop there. Will return to this thought and would love to hear your insights!!!
