knowing when enough is enough

yesterday, an old acquaintance initiated a conversation with me.

now, most people would look at this situation and be delighted to reconnect with someone they knew a while ago, someone they haven't spoken to or seen in 'ages'. i guess my problem is that this guy really isn't my favorite person, for a number of reasons. i won't go too far into the issues, but i will say that i had very strong feelings for this guy, and i thought, before our little...incident, that he had feelings for me as well. whenever feelings are involved, you know things aren't going to end well. haha.
anyway, this guy, out of the blue, initiates conversation, and it's so random, so unexpected, that i don't have time to get angry at him all over again and we end up having a very nice conversation about how his life is getting organized, and he seems to be doing very well. it makes me happy to know that he's cleaned up his act a bit. it's a downfall of mine, retaining feelings for people who i used to run with. i'll always care about them even if they're not mine to care about.

okay, i'm done with nostalgia. it gets old after awhile. i'm going to go listen to stephen jerzak and try and retain my youthful naivety.
