Just when you think that your life has taken a new turn and you have left your friends and relationships far behind (people who left you to rot, not offering a hand to pick you up when you needed them the most), you receive strong jerks – sudden calls, ‘texts from the other side!’ and unexpected communication from people from your past. What do you do at this moment?
There is nothing for you to do but listen to the useless conversations. As an educated and cultured human being you are also entitled to be subtle and casual (instead of rude and rough) in your approach.
So to sum it up, your life is a smooth ride only when you are a loner. The moment you choose to be social and successful all the wrong people start re-entering your life path. Whether you choose to erase them completely or ignore them to a certain extent is your call. Your choice shapes your character and your future approaches.
Remember bad is good as long as you are comfortable handling everything.
