Ghosts of Christmas Past

So, there's something else that happened over our Christmas break ...
There must be something weird in the air -Because not only was I visited by "ghosts of Christmas past" but, my sister was too - Allow me to explain ... I'm sure we all have people from our past that we don't talk to anymore -some on purpose. This always makes me a little nervous and cautious about things like having this blog ;being on facebook -etc. There are plenty of people from my past I do keep in touch with -That I went to school with or worked with -But, like I said there's others I'd rather not. Of course I also know they're out there and the whole -6 degrees of seperation and all. But, it was really weird that within 24hrs -and a couple days before Christmas I got not 1 but, 2 Facebook friend requests that I was unsure about. Being sick I thought maybe I was hallucinating or -this is it -I'm sick and gonna die and this is some kind of judgement- I was taken aback needless to say. I took a little while to think about it -I already ignored 1. The other I thought would happen eventually - And I haven't gotten into the whole story on here yet -But, I figured sometime I'd be contacted by my daughter's biological dad or his family -It was his mom. I talked to my husband, dad, and sister about it and I finally sent her a message (it's great being able to send a message to a non-friend) -I tried to be somewhat friendly but, also stern -I mean how else are you supposed to act towards someone who hasn't been involved for over 10 years?! As of yet I haven't heard back -the ball is in their court as they say -So, we'll see. And then the day after Christmas my sister was contacted by an ex of hers-Like I say -it's weird! So, yep seems to be the Christmas for ghosts of the past or something!

Gotta love Facebook! Like your previous commenter said...makes the world a smaller place. You just never know who you'll "run into".

Wow...that's a tough one. Facebook is great in a lot of ways but things like this make me nervous. Not every 'blast from the past' is a good one! Good luck with it all.

So know what you're saying about being on FB/blogging & connecting w/those you want, yet there are some that you would just rather not connect with ever again. I have a few of those & more than once I have wanted to take down my blog.
I figure it's life & it's their issues so I'll just deal. Sounds like you are handling it the best you can & I believe sending a msg is good way to communicate w/keeping a healthy boundary.
Let us know how it goes!

That happened on my blog a few months ago which led to comment moderation. Some people need to fulfill their need to reconnect. I am not one of them. I leave the past where it fell because my present day is pretty good.
