One of them still lives in Madison. I see him occasionally and have always tried to avoid crossing his path or making eye contact. In my mind, my avoidance behavior was for his benefit. I didn’t want to subject him to unpleasant memories of encountering me in the school hallways. But recently, I’ve admitted to myself that I avoid him for my benefit. I’m a coward who doesn’t want to own up to what I did to him.So what should I do now? Should I approach him in person or on social media to apologize? Or would that just lead to an unpleasant scene and make both of us feel even worse?
