There's this guy I went to highschool with and to this day I still see him walking down the same road in our hometown. I bet he still makes pizzas.

I went to school with this guy he was always nice and pretty chill. Smart as hell too. After we all graduated and went our separate ways I would see him walk down this one road in our hometown all the time. I'd drive by and see him just walking. He worked at the pizza shop down the road and I only found that out because I stopped in one night to grab a pizza. I saw him behind the counter and I saw another guy waiting for pizza too that went to school with us. Had a mini class reunion that night. We all went our separate ways. I drifted here and I drifted there and whenever I'd return to my hometown to see family I'd see him walking. I was out and about today and who did I see? I saw him and I know it's him because he looks the same as he always has just older. Not going to lie it bums me out knowing that the guy was smart as can be and this is it for him. Still stuck in the hometown just walking everywhere. I'm in no way looking down on the guy hell he's probably doing better than I am. It just bums me out over the wasted potential. Always bums me out. I think I'm going to pop into the pizza shop one of these days and catch up if he's there. He was always good to me.

Some people are just happy to live the simple life.

Some are scared, like me.

And some are just held back by ties and obligations. Also, me.

Maybe he's content with his simple life.

I'd rather be piss poor and happy than filthy rich and miserable.

The thing about potential, it's not based if its done TRULY, on just money. He could be doing another gig we don't know about as well, or maybe people love him at the pizza place and he makes them happy. Just BEING, we have potential, and have filled our potential. Its ego, status, etc that tries to dictate potential, but its untruth. I think he would definitely enjoy chatting again with you!!
