MIDLIFE FRIENDS WERE OLD FRIENDS
What can we expect when we reconnect with an old (childhood) friend?
Actually, the response is pretty obvious.
It depends on what the childhood friendship was like.
If we had a happy friendship, with positive memories, we hope for
more of the same.
On the flip side, if it was an unhappy friendship, with negative
memories, is it realistic to expect a fresh start?
FOOD FOR THOUGHT
Before contacting an old friend, remember back to the reasons why the
friendship ended. Feelings - both positive and negative - may linger, even
after many years.
Are you considering contacting old (childhood) friends?
Why do you want to reconnect?
Do you remember the reasons why the friendships ended?
What are your expectations?
