Anonymous asked: What relationships do you miss the most? Is there anyone you wish you were still in contact with?
I think there are incredible tools available in 2013 to staying in contact with people, even if you don’t plan on catching up over a cup of coffee. There are a lot of people that I stay in contact with only through Facebook…seeing what their lives look like now. In the last six months I’ve sent off probably a dozen or more e-mails, trying to reach out to some people I truly miss, mostly friends from middle school and high school where we drifted apart. That was frustrating because not a single one responded, but maybe they have yet to reach the reflective, retrospective moment that caused me to write the messages in the first place.
There’s a guy I dated off and on in high school that ended our friendship abruptly two summers ago, I believe because he didn’t know how to remain friends with me while dating someone new. He was a big part of that version of me, and I wish he would come back into my life. We went through a lot, and I miss him. I have no interest in dating him again, or messing up his love life, but to see how much he’s grown and discovered, and show how much I’ve discovered…I think that could be pretty amazing.
Then we can get into the existential…I miss my grandmother. I miss that support system, that unconditional love, and all that food :) I’ve been through a lot since she passed. I think she could have helped me through some of that, and I know she would be extremely proud of where I am now.
