May 23, 2018 - I'm afraid of reaching out.
The longer I wait, the more power the fear has over me. What if we have nothing to talk about? What if it's awkward? What if she's no longer interested in being my friend? What if she doesn't have the time for me anymore?
This fear never really goes away, unless you do something about it. Speak to those old friends and trust them as you always did, and see what happens.
Tonight, an old friend and I caught up over a year's worth of growing pains, quarter life crises, the choice of love over fear, board games, and our struggles to become badass women.
