I hope this doesn't count as double posting and it's ok for me to make a thread. I am just super nervous but hopeful about this and your encouragement and support would be very lovely.
I recently made that thread about finding somebody like a grandparent figure or similar.
Im not sure if anyone remembers but ages ago I went to this primary school to discuss advertising in their newsletter for my business. The lady at the office was actually an old carer of mine. Her and her husband didn't look after me for very long, probably only a few months and it was pretty early on I think but they were so nice even if I didn't think that at the time, looking back there were by far the nicest people out of all of my placements, the only people that actually cared I think. They have really stood out for me but when I left their place I didn't continue contact with them and I was going through a lot so I don't think I really understood how lovely they were to me. I thought I might try getting in contact with them. Maybe nothing will come of it, but something might so worth a shot. Worse case, they completley reject me, which I'm sort of used to, best case something awesome happens and I get to meet these lovely people again. I have been looking for some sort of older adult figure in my life and maybe this is what I need. If this was to work out I feel a bunch of the other issues I'm having will sort themselves out. But I don't want to get my hopes up toooo muchi
I think I'm going to message this lady in the next couple of days., ahh

I do remember that @j95, that's awesome that you're planning on getting back in contact with them! It must be a bit nerve wracking though, huh? Most people are really happy to hear that they've been a positive influence in someone's life - hopefully that's the case with this couple as well
