Two winters ago I came back into contact with a friend from middle and high school. We met for a little social afternoon, just sat and caught up on each other’s life, then we parted ways. I haven’t seen her since but we’ve been in less-than-regular email contact ever since. The post about the unfriend kicked my ass into writing back to this friend who I miss very much. We’re trying to work out a time where we can get together now that we live in the same state. I don’t want another fallout. This friend is genuine. She is super-intelligent so I know she is not just using me for knowledge. So, I have found the good in my unfriendship — a closer bond to my childhood friend. Life is so mysterious in its ways of giving you waves of goodness to counterbalance the badness.
