Re: Old Crushes

I can't believe it's been 7 years since I started this thread >

It seems like yesterday. Time for an update.

I never did contact her and I'm glad. Its been 40 years and I just realized
all that time I'd been oblivious to one little fact.
As I said before we never had any classes together or saw each other
outside of school. I remember now that at the start of each term I might
have passed her in the hallway between classes once or twice a week.
Just seeing her in my peripheral vision for a brief moment gave me a bit of
a rush. Every term after the first week I would never see her again as she
purposely changed her route just to avoid me. I guess she thought I was
creepy enough to deny me a 4 second glance out of a 40 hour week. I can
see why. My ADD made it hard for me to communicate and resulted in
social awkwardness. So now I'm pretty positive she wouldn't have
appreciated hearing from me and I saved myself some embarrassment.

I'm amazed that I glossed over that fact all these years.

It's amazing how somethings can take such a long time for us to get through our head when others take seconds.

Shame derives it's power from being unspeakable.
Shame corrodes the very part of us that believes we are capable of change.
Shame cannot survive being spoken. It can't survive empathy.

I know. I can think of a few occasions over the years where
I just didn't 'clue in' to what was going on at the time.
