Reconnecting With Old Friends 7-14-17

Reconnecting with FriendsBY MADISYN TAYLOR
When fate brings old friends back into our lives, there is always a reason.

Every person that passes through our lives makes a contribution to our life stories. There are those who play large roles and make deep impressions, but sometimes a brief special appearance before life takes them in another direction creates a meaningful connection. It is a rare gift when they suddenly reappear in our lives after a long absence. 

Though the world may seem full of more people than we could ever know, we are often drawn to people with similar energy, which brings us together time and time again. On first meeting, the characters in our life stories may seem familiar. We may know each other from past lives or perhaps we merely recognize the energy of a kindred spirit. But when fate brings old friends back into our lives, there is always a reason. They may act as messengers, reminding us of a part of ourselves we have forgotten to nurture. They might appear to give us a chance to react in a new way to an old situation. They may even bring up unresolved issues so that we may complete them, giving us the chance to move forward on our life path. Whether old friends, previous romances, or once and future partners, their reappearance is more than mere chance. They may never know what they bring into our lives, but the renewed contact is a gift. 

If this hasn’t happened to you, maybe you are meant to initiate contact by seeking out old friends. If old friends come to mind or into your dreams, use their appearance as an excuse to get in touch. If an old song or movie reminds you of them, reach out to share the gift of renewed contact. Wherever you fall in the circle of connection and reconnection, be sure to look beyond the surprise of the moment to enjoy the deeper gift that this revelation brings.

    • I connected with this also. Like you, I had a friend who reached out to me after 30 years. We were besties in high school. I was in an emotion and verbal abusive relationship and I was fighting cancer. I was alone and so depressed. Out of the blue my friend called me. For the next year she was my daily support and my strength as I endured an aggressive treatment while enduring the abuse of the man I now call my ex. It was her friendship that kept me going on the days I didn’t think I’d make it. I too will never forget her. I reached out to her the other day to let her know what a blessing she was in my life. You may be saying goodbye to your social worker but believe me, her spirit will live inside of you forever.
