Time passes, we all change and we all lose touch with people as we do and the memories that you made. Who is that person you had in your life that you spent every day with? You couldn’t be separated and you knew that no matter what you would always be friends? Maybe they are still in your life but you don’t spend the same time with them. Maybe you don’t even know where they are! Memories fade as we are creating new ones and these connections allow them to stay alive.
It’s important to grow as people, to become more rounded and fully formed. We go through new stages and sometimes the people in our lives at the time go down a different path. But you also lose something in those people, those who knew you when you were that person. Though you may be different in some ways, deep down that part of you still exists. The friends you had then know that person better than anyone who you have met since. Keeping a connection to those parts of our lives is important, it reminds us where we come from and how far we have gone. To love ourselves and our past is important in the now. To live in the past is never good, but to cut it off completely means you lose a lot of the lessons, and more importantly the mistakes we made that lead to the amazing person you are now!
So think, who are the people you know in this world that knows that you better than anyone else? Today connectivity is such that, though we lose touch over the years we can easily find those people again. With social media being such a massive element of modern living it is possible to find them to reconnect. So take a moment now (don’t worry, I’ll wait while you do) and start with the best message I can suggest that should work in the majority of cases… “Hi” and let the memories flood back. Yes, you could get more personal and flowery with your reintroduction, but sometimes the simplest starts are best. 🙂
Let me know how you get on! And if you decide to meet up, I’m sure there are some things you can find to do together! Sure, your tastes might have changed but that is why we do what we do! Just log in and let them do the same, you can find things you both love to do! Be our guest 🙂
To the memories you’ve had, and the memories you will create!
