NOTHINGS HAS CHANGED

Today at work I ran into a old friend. This is a gal who was oh so cool. Always on the cutting edge of fashion, travel, cooking, music, films .....Basically the cutting edge of EVERYTHING. I used to be so WOWed by her. She was to me.... OH SO COOL!!! But today, something happened. this happenin' diva was.... now how do I put it ..... S.H.A.L.L.O.W. As I looked into her perfectly made-up face and listened to her hip lingo, I thought, after 5 years nothing has changed. Still there is an interchangable amazing resturant to try out or a to die for artsy movie that is a must see..... Basically the same stuff that we talked about 5 years ago only a different name or location. When I asked her about the homefront... the meat and potatoes of life, well, she said nothing has changed. NOTHING HAS CHANGED???? FIVE YEARS and NOTHING HAS changed??? The world has stopped turning for me, I have done a total flip flop with my life.... dog and adopting my Tate. Would she have understood my deep feelings and emotions and the peace and love in my soul??? I decided not to even go there and flashed my pearly whites and gave her an empty answer.... NOTHING HAS CHANGE with me either......

Yeah, I'm sure she would have been one of those people that just doesn't get it!

I have had those empty moments with "old friends" too - life takes on different shapes to different people and it is weird to see where people's priorities end up lying...yours are just where they are supposed to be.

There's a reason you haven't seen her in five years! She's not a kindred spirit, Lisa!

p.s. People like that always make me feel uncomfortable.

That is an interesting post! Your not alone, I have chatted with people that I thought were so admirable at some point in my life to find out that they just don't get it. I've learned to save my energy to those that really care.

Yep, saving your breath was in your best interests.

Let her be happy in her 'bubble'. You have that meaningful happiness that is only gonna get better!

Incredible, isn't it. Also a bit sad (for her). You would think that she would grow a bit in all of those years. - Stephanie www.mesocrafty.wordpress.com
