Today, I am going for lunch with a new group of friends I have kindly been introduced to by a friend. I met some of them a few days ago and was invited to lunch. Which is very kind.
They seem a lovely group of ladies. In their late 40’s, 50’s, which is great for me, as I relate to older people more. They also are intelligent, nice, decent, well mannered, well spoken people, I noted. Which is also great for me.
So, taking it easy and not going to dive in. I also won’t be letting them know about my past etc, not until I know them really well. I realise my boundaries on what I shared in the past, were not healthy, and I learned the hard way, repeatedly, the perils of this. Hopefully my friend won’t reveal anything to them, and I will be asking her not to do this and to leave my past and my journey to me to speak about, if and when I am ready.
I’ve been socialising a lot more lately and it feels good. I am a sociable person and although I need to limit this, so not be overwhelmed, I do enjoy the company of mature people.
Trying to ‘go with the flow’ in life a bit more, but in a far healthier way, than I have in my life previously.
Update, it went really well, very relaxed atmosphere, at a lovely location to meet for lunch. Right on the water in a lovely restaurant. The ladies are all nice, decent, easy to talk to and very friendly. It was nice conversation, in a nice place.
I really enjoyed it.
