when you look at a person, any person,
remember that everyone has a story.
everyone has gone through something
that has changed them.
don’t worry, you may think you’ll ‘never’ get over it,
but you also thought it would last ‘forever.’
Tonight was really great. I got to catch up with an old mentor of mine from way back in middle school. It is so crazy how much time has gone by and how so much changes yet can also remain the same. A group of people I went to middle school with were all really close with one of our teachers (a group i still keep in contact with today and it actually includes my best friend). We used to have lunch with this teacher everyday for lunch. I know it may sound kinda creepy, but he was more like a friend than a teacher to all of us, it’s hard to explain. I met him when he was like 25 i believe (he was really young)… anyways we just got to reconnect over FB and it was so awesome to see how well he’s doing now. It’s just weird to think how fast time went. He has a wife and two beautiful kids now that he couldn’t be more proud of. It’s a big deal for him because when we met, back in the day, he still lived with his parents and we always used to joke around about how he never really wanted to move out. ahah idk it really is hard to explain the feeling you get when you have the opportunity to talk/reconnect with someone from your past and can be genuinely happy for them. I’ve run into him a few times in high school because he used to coach a hs basketball team. Now that I am graduating college in about a year, it is just amazing to see how far everyone has come. It puts a lot into perspective and makes you want to appreciate everything, especially the little things, a lot more!
