My Mood: Got a letter from a friend of a friend last heard from 15 or so years ago

Confused Got a letter from a friend of a friend last heard from 15 or so years ago

Hi,

This person tracked me down through the internet and the US postal service.
Then provided an email and phone number.
NOT GOING TO HAPPEN.

I have no good memories about that time period.

This was sooooooo long ago for me that I had a hard time figuring out who the letter was from. I had to read it two times.
Then I freaked a little because hubby would not ever want to deal with that. I let the letter sit near my comptuter for a day and then I tore it to bits and put it in the trash.




Really really annoyed.

Who the heck would disturb someone else from so long ago???
That is so wrong.

That would sort of freak me out.
it is one thing to have an old friend find me on face book but then I get to decide if they get to see my personal info or not
Mail is mail!
are you in the phone book?
if you are then any one who knows your name can find you....it is very easy on the internet now yellow pages .com or something like that.
I am sorry that they contacted you and no you have no obligation to respond at all! Let the past stay in the past if it was not a good time for you.

Dear Beth,
I know that any one in the world can find me.

But it is hurtful to try to connect with me.
Those were bad times.

I hope that you have peace,peace,peace of mind. The trash can is where that letter belongs. You don't need any head trips from the past that troubles you. Let the burden of that letter go. BF

Hi,

Maybe this sounds wrong, but I would have enough grace to not contact someone from my past -- especially if that time period was rather ugly. It is tacky and rude to disrupt people.

I want to live in the present and look to the future.
