    (Our kids go to school and play on sports teams together, so it’s inevitable.). I never had a conflict with this person, but I could tell she looked down on me and thought I was unsophisticated and immature. In her defense, I was unsophisticated and immature, and this was 20 years ago. When I see her now, do I act confident and friendly, or do I try to avoid her and pretend I don’t remember her?
