Reconnected With an old Crush

Something awesome happened the other day, I reconnected with this girl, Jenna, on Facebook. I had such a huge crush on her in Middle School. But I was never able to talk to her. I remember she was bullied an awful lot just like me, too.

This one time, I saw her in the hall, crying. She was standing there wiping tears away and her lips were quivering. She had her big yellow jacket on and dammit I felt so bad for her I wanted to go over and give her a hug. I even watched for a minute or so, trying to will myself to go over and say something. But in the end I walked away like a jerk. I don't think she even saw me.

As always, I picture what it would have been like if I didn't have anxiety; I would have gone over and asked if she needed a hug, and then I'd embrace her, big coat and all, and hug her tears away. We'd become friends and hang out, maybe even date? Oh well.

Yesterday, I found her on FB and requested to add her to my friends list, not expecting her to accept. Well, she did, and we talked.

She lived a really rough life a few years after high school. I won't go into detail about what she told me, but she said all of her experiences made her into the strong person she is today She has such a beautiful family now, too.

If I ever see her again, maybe she'll give me that hug. LOL (Probably not)
