The out-going..


I've never been one for going out (err, I mean the party kind, not the travel kind obviously). But these days we are making a point of socializing, if not for us, for Snugli's sake. And every time I do and I meet people, I somehow feel that I'm not on the same wavelength as them. Don't take me wrong, they are all nice, but somehow there's always something missing. I can't always expect to meet people my age. But since when does same age mean same wavelength? Sometimes I think I'm too judgemental (especially when it comes to parenting, but thats for another bigger topic, I'm talking really big here :-D). I never used to be this way. I'm a person who gets along with everybody most of the time. Maybe too much isolation has resulted in this. Sri says I'll be alright once we get to meet people more times, but I'm not so sure. I long for my friends, the friends I had and the friends I made myself. But sometimes I'm scared that things will be different with them too. Am I the only one who feels this way?

No Deeps. You are not the only one. I have felt the same too many times. But I still long for the good old friends, as cliched as it may be.
Needless to say, things won't be different with us, as we have proof every time we pick up the telephone to call each other. Cheer up girl!


SK retorted...

I can very much relate!! And its true the friends with whom you were sooo comfortable once upon a time, may not be the same now.
Different circumstances mold people differently. Unless that is the case with friends, people will be different.


Deeps retorted...

Soum,

Its the fact that we can talk for hours is what reassures me. But I still can't help but wonder..

SK,

Well said. I know I can't expect anyone to remain the same, I can only hope that we haven't lost the wavelength we had..


Whatsup retorted...

My experience is that, its ok not to be comfortable people. At the same time, we have to keep looking friends with whom we can get along well. Eventually, you will find people whom you will be comfortable with. so, keep trying.


on9thcloud retorted...

I understand how you feel.Infact yesterday I was feeling so down just wishing I have few real good friends within reach..I still long for good old friends.


Deeps retorted...

Whatsup,

Thats reassuring, thanks :).

Lavs,

Its nice to know I'm not the only one. I guess we all are uncomfortable with some people sometime.


Ranjani retorted...

Oh trust me I feel that way too. My son being an year old now, we try to socialise atleast for his sake and some of them I meet...I just cannot relate to them at all. On the flipside, I met some of my good old friends in Bangalore when I had been there, and realised, I dont relate the same way with them like I used to long time back. Its just that as time goes by, we change a lot!


Deeps retorted...

Ranjani,

Thats exactly what I meant. I haven't socialized for more than 2 years, and now I guess I need a bit more time to adjust to the thought that I might not always relate to people.
