Several months ago, Eric sent me a link to sign up for a myspace account. Because he wanted to be my "friend". (And since he paid me a quarter last Wednesday, he is my friend for at least another 2 days and 7 hours, but that's another story). So I signed up, but never did anything with it. Until I heard about Boomer and Jennifer finding each other on myspace and how Eric is completely hooked on it like something that someone is majorly hooked on, so I started updating my page and surfing around. And I was pleasantly surprised that 3 of my really good friends from college that I had kind of lost touch with were on there and were very happy to welcome me back into their lives via myspace. Ahhh, bliss.
But then this afternoon I did some more "random" searching. I found people that I would love to talk to again . . . but I'm afraid of rejection. I haven't invited anyone to be my friend yet. I haven't put myself out there. These people I found just kind of drifted away. I wouldn't say that we parted on bad terms, but its more like our lives were forced into different directions. I don't know what I'm so afraid of. I'm so stinkin' insecure. Its not like I have to go up to them in person and ask them to be my friend again. Its over the INTERNET. Its FUN. Its "safe". So why is it so scary?
