I've just been friended (there's a new fangled word) on Facebook by people I was a mad 20 something year old with. I feel as though they're from a whole other life. Certainly it was a whole other phase in my life.
Of course I accepted them as friends, and I look forward to finding out about their lives.
Yet there's part of me that wonders if I want to. It feels a little like a backward step. It's a part of my life that I left behind.
Maybe I'm afraid they'll reject me. They're pretty cool characters and ah, my life choices are different to theirs, and I'm a loooooong way from cool. I'm very comfortable with my uncoolness, yet it's funny that I'm suddenly conscious of it with these blasts from my past.
I don't really know why this worries my at all, in all likelihood we'll do our polite catching up then ignore each, so nothing will have changed.
