I know how you feel.  I moved far away to go to college.  A lot of the people that I went to school with are just starting to grow up and get their first jobs.  I had my first real job back in 2008 and we bought a home in 2006.  It just seems like I’m way ahead of many of them and it feels so strange.

I think this is fairly common, especially for smaller towns.  In my situation there are those who “left the Valley” and those who didn’t.  The ones who did typically have college educations and are, depending on how you define success, ahead of the curve.  The ones who didn’t have a tendancy to have a kid or two, maybe they’ve gotten married (some divorced already) maybe not, etc.  It can definitely be hard not to judge but everyone has different goals for their lives and we should respect that.  And thank goodness for that, otherwise our reunions would be incredibly boring!  😉

I feel ya! I moved 14 hours away and started a completely different life. I lost a lot of friends when I moved but I gained a ton more. It was so weird when my parents came to visit me and met my now fiance. It was surreal b/c it was like both my lives were meshing together. I can’t picture my now friends hanging out with my old friends, b/c I’m older now and I am a different person. I wouldn’t call yourself a fraud b/c who you are now, is who you are, change happens, and I think that’s exactly what happened for you, and luckily for you it was a great thing!
