Do you like welcoming back old friends when they return to your life?

This weekend I had another round of coincidences. First I met old school friends that I hadn't seen in years. It was interesting how everyone seemed to be happy with their studies, their life in different parts of the world and most importantly their love life. It's weird how they all have longterm relationships and even if they broke up with the one I used to know, then they have been together with another one for over a year at least. Talking about rumors of old classmates was hilarious, too. You begin to wonder how people end up with what they are doing right now, whereas others were obvious to foresee.

Later that special Easter weekend (Happy Easter to everyone by the way), I met friends I grew up with. Again, we hadn't seen each other in 3 years. It was a blast to recount all the stories, all the teenage or childhood mischief we could still remember. Pure fun. It's great to know that they are all doing fine. Relationships for 5, 11 or 3 years. A good perspective on regular income and generally a happy life.

Now I look at my own circumstances. Big question mark. Do you have interesting stories meeting someone from the past?

    Glad you saw some old friends. It is strange to see what old acquaintances are up to , and how they've changed. One of the beautiful and painful parts of life.

    Sometimes it's strange to see someone from your past. Usually that person has taken a path so different from your own that you really can't relate. I know old schoolmates that are still all about the party, and I think really? You haven't outgrown that yet?

    I love catching up with old friends and in my case my friends are undoubtedly much older than yours. In the past few years--especially with FaceBook and internet--I've been reconnecting with friends and schoolmates that I haven't seen or talked to in 30 or 40 years. It's cool to see where we are now and the roads we took in life.
