A lady from my past left a message. We worked together in a setting where I experienced a lot of trauma. Part of me would like to be friends with her but I also don't want to be submerged again in feelings about that job situation. I don't think she realizes how much I was affected.
She lives in a different state so this would be a long-distance relationship, for the most part. She's a good person and I don't want to hurt her feelings but at the same time I feel uncomfortable about renewing the friendship.
She says Linda and I are in her prayers. This is one of those situations that I just don't know how to handle.
This sounds like a question for Dear Abby...but any suggestions?
