case of the ex
today i ran into my ex boyfriend whom i have not seen in 10 years. we were such children back then and it’s almost like meeting again as strangers. i was just in so much shock and could not believe we were standing there.
it’s interesting because when we were younger, we barely had full personalities, any experience and practically didn’t know anything. but i still love the genuine and pure feelings we had towards one another, liking this boy or girl for no reason at all and just feeling so heartbroken about it and obviously being overly dramatic. but at least it seemed so much more real. nowadays everyone we meet at our age is all about how much money they make or if they’d be a good wife or husband and what they do for a living, etc etc. causing us to pre judge and sum them all up in a matter of seconds before ever really getting to know them or just eliminating almost all chance of ever liking them or being drawn to them just for the plain fact that you are.
looking back at my relationship with this ex, we were so young and had no idea what was real except for our feelings or so we thought. it got me thinking all day what if this and that and who knows but i guess everything happens for a reason. i mean how well do we really know people of our past unless we keep in touch with them consistently?
