Don't live in the past

I used to stay in touch with someone from high school until I realized now that we both have nothing in common anymore. I'm all about pushing forward in life, but he clearly has a backwards way of thinking. All he ever did was bitch and moan about how much he hated high school and the people in it. Whenever I told this guy that I'm too busy living my life to be following what other people are doing whether they're guys I knew in high school or kindergarten, he just didn't get it. It's very exhausting to be around people from the past who are still stuck inside the past. Sure, everybody goes through hell in high school. There were some people that I could not stand, but I got over it. You'd think that some people would just move on when nearly twenty years have gone by. Not everyone. So I distanced myself from this guy and he is now cut completely out of my life. Now I feel more at peace and can finally move on.

Having a past

My best friend and I have been friends since first grade. We're now in our early 40's. You don't like talking about high school? Try talking about elementary school. I don't believe my friend and I are stuck in the past, but we don't hide or run from it either. We just have it, and it doesn't bother us to talk about it. It's not like we don't talk about the present, and future as well.

Can’t allow people with their toxic, poisonous outlook to infect your head space.
Tough some times if it’s a long term relationship but you have to cut the cord.

I admire people who still have elementary or highshool acquaintances. I do not. And I am fine with it. Highschool sucked but you got to push forward because tomorrow is a new day.

Glorious release to the sappy stamping grounds. On the way ya can think back "what the hell was that all about?"

It's not healthy or wise to dwell on things that happened 20 or 25 years ago. The only thing you can do is learn from your past so that history won't repeat itself. High school comes only once in life and never again. There's life beyond those hallways. Things change. Stuff happens. Life goes on. Being a grownup is great.
