do you ever find yourself sifting through facebook for ghosts from your past?
i’m refering to living ghosts…ya know, past friends, colleagues, etc.
i know some people do this and friend every person they’ve ever known in life and if that’s you, great. Not for me. I truly believe life leads us in different directions for reasons. I’m not going to say I haven’t desperately wanted to reconnect with certain people from my past but not all of them. Most of the time i pretend to not remember them just to get out of some shitty small talk.
i do the Facebook Creep just to see what they’ve been up to since i vanished from their world…
i do it more often than i’d like to admit. of course, i’m a decent human and i wish happiness, love and all good things (for most of them) but i do wonder if they ever miss me. or was i forgettable? do they ever think about me or the fun we had? do they even hold onto one memory of me?
is this pathetic? be honest, i can take it.
certain people i have reconnected with, friended and its been amazing. others i have friended but find after a few months we have drifted away again. most of the time i just sneak away without leaving a trace. except those awful instances where i’ve hit like on a picture or even clicked add friend accidentally and panicked then deleted as fast as possible! phew.
i swear, no more creeping…
p.s. ive been humming this in my head while writing this post…
