Answering the Phone

We all have people from our past that are in our pasts for a reason. Be that from loss of contact over time or from insurmountable troubles that just drive people apart, the feelings are strong enough to drive people apart. Regardless the circumstances there are people that we don’t really want to keep in our lives.

I saw a number on my phone that I didn’t recognize and answered. It was one of those people I purposefully lost touch with. Not only that, but they needed advice.

I didn’t hang up.

We talked a bit about their situation and worked out what they could do to improve their situation. We didn’t talk about how we are, where we lived, or anything personal.┬áIt was just a favor for a person that I would not reach out to on my own and who I probably won’t ever be hearing from again.
