How can I re-kindle relationships with long lost friends?
Just start by reaching out. Let them know that you miss them, your old relationship. Share with them what’s been going on with you and ask them about their lives. What’s the worse that can happen? And if they’re open to reconnecting too, make the effort to keep in contact and being a true friend to them in the ways that you weren’t before. Because if you really wanna have that relationship with them and you really want to re-kindle that friendship, it takes effort. People aren’t your friends if you don’t actually talk to them. Theoretically they are, but what’s the good in that?
So in sum, reach out to your long lost friends, tell them how you feel, and then make the effort to really create the relationship that you’d like.
