Ghosts of Christmas Past
One of the things about coming back home is that you’re suddenly put in near proximity with a number of people with whom you haven’t really exchanged words with for the longest time. I’m actually set up to meet with some of these people for dinner (individually), and now I’m starting to feel rather nervous about it all.
I actually do like most of these people, and we used to get along quite well at some point in the past, it’s just that we’ve lost touch for so long now I really wonder if there’s anything to be said between us.
What if I meet up with them and find that, in spite of having wanted to meet, everything just turns out to be quiet and awkward? What if we find that we’ve changed, that we’re no longer interested in even keeping in contact? What if-
But I know that these are things that you’ll never know until you try, and maybe the results will be good and maybe they won’t, but the very least I can do is to try.
