I got a friends request on myspace the other day.. It was from this guy I knew and haven't seen or heard from in close to 12 years.. I've had ups and downs with this person and we used to be roommates close to 16 years ago.. I have a lot of mixed feelings about accepting him back in my life because he's done some really selfish low down things in the past that I have a hard time forgiving him for. Not to mention I don't know if he's really changed/matured or not after all this time and I'm worried about having to put up with some stupid S*** from him again.. After internally debating what I was going to do I decided to go ahead and "accept his friends request" tonight, and I wrote him a message afterwards.. I was cordial in my message and only briefly mentioned that I have some resentments from past happenings, but moved on and didn't write paragraphs of "blame material".. I had thought about not accepting his friend request and simply ignoring him, but felt like that might be a spineless approach and figured that I'd probably have to deal with him sooner or later.. I hope I made the right choice by opening up the communication with him again.. We've had fun times in the past, but also MUCH negativity revolving around our acquaintance with each other.. At this point in life I've been working hard on bringing more positivity into my life with my own outlook on the world and also my view of myself, and also in the people I surround myself with.. I just hope this isn't a step backwards for me.. I guess I'm just going to have to feel it out, and if my "friend" is still full of negative drama and brings that to my table then I'll have to cut off contact again and do that ignoring thing I mentioned.. Thanks for letting me share.. I just needed to express this somewhere and this place is as good as any right now.. Opinions or suggestions on approach are welcome! Thanks again!
