What drew me in originally was the title. I've had my fair share of long lost friends and it's always nice to know you're not the only one fighting these demons. I'm desperate for closure, though I know I will never obtain any. It's easy to feel alone at this time, and knowing that I'm not is super comforting.
I think the author wrote really thoroughly which is what proves to be a difficulty for me. Writing about personal events with such rawness is something I've been challenged to do, and I highly respect this piece because it's inspiring to me, almost like a goal.
1. Do you regret ever knowing these long lost friends?
2. Is it hard for you to see these people without feeling anger?
3. How did you learn to trust your current friends?
I think the only thing I can say is that you are not alone and thank you for writing this. I've always yearned for someone to know how I feel everyday and to read something that I resonate with so much is comforting to me.
I'm happy for you, knowing that you've acquired friends who love you for who you are. Also I love how this experience has only motivated you. Every time you were knocked down, you got back up again which is really inspiring.
