Today's post was inspired by a trip to the gym last night.
After finishing my time on the treadmill I headed over to do some ab work when I saw this guy walking towards me.
We both looked at each other and smiled then kept going opposite directions.
Then immediately afterwards I thought.
'WAIT! That was Chris!'
Then I went about my workout and didn't bother to hunt him down to talk to him or say hi at all.
See, this guy Chris used to date a friend of mine, and me and my ex-boyfriend and a whole group of us, used to run around together all the time back in my 20's.
The incident had me thinking about a topic I actually think about quite a bit.
Isn't it interesting how you have friends at a certain point in your life that you're really close with and do almost everything with, then a few years down the road you don't even talk to them at all?
It's sorta sad.
Granted, as I sit here and write this post I'll be the first to admit there are several friends that I've had in recent years that I have parted ways with it and it was intentional.
I chose to end those friendships because I was over the drama that came with them.
In this case, I'm talking about friendships where you just grew apart.
I guess it goes back to that old saying: friends for a reason, friends for a season and friends for life.
Even so, I find it amazing that there are people in this town, or in other towns for that matter, that I use to talk to on a daily basis and now I don't even recognize in the mall or at the gym.
Have any of you had this experience too?
How does it make you feel?
