20 years later. They tracked me down through Facebook and sent me a note. I just wanted to share, because it's rare that something like this happens, and it gives me hope that some of the people who treated us like crap have actually grown up and and feel like shit about it:
I believe I was mean to you in high school. I want to say that I am deeply sorry about that. I hope that my nastiness toward you either went unnoticed or did very little harm to you. I know that when the subject of mean girls/guys come up, I feel physically ill about the way I treated you. I had no reason to act that way. It was foolish and selfish and a result of my own issues, and by no means should you have been the target of any of my thoughts and or my actions. Even if you don't remember me or my bad behavior, I do, and after all this while I just want to say that I am truly sorry. I don't look for a response or forgiveness because I will remember for the rest of my life how I was towards a couple of people in my life who just didn't deserve it, and again am sorry one of those people turned out to be you.
Your profile picture is great by the way. The years have been good to you. I hope that you have a wonderful happy life, and are blessed with all that you desire.
Thanks for reading this.
