How'd you find me after all these years?
You ever have one of those moments when you stop and take stock of your life? Our break up was one of those moments for me. I took it as an opportunity to do a complete about face on a lot of things in my life. I started taking college more seriously. I stopped all drug use. I cut ties with anybody that I thought was headed for trouble in the future, which included nearly all my friends. I even stopped using the nickname Chris and asked people to start calling me by my full name as a reminder that I was a whole new person.
What did I do about the friend request? It seemed rude to ignore somebody you spent four years of your life with. He was my first love. He and I had some good times together. Bad times too, but I won't go into details. Plus, I was just plain curious about how he's been and what he's been up to all these years.
I accepted his friend request. We exchanged a few emails back and forth. He's doing fine. I'm doing fine. All very anticlimactic. The unexpected bonus is that it's made me see my husband for what he is. The man I chose to be with for the rest of my life. It was a good decision.
