I fell out with someone last summer and it really changed our friendship.
We were in different places in our lives and struggled to accept the person that the other had become. I remember trying to rebuild the friendship, but the effort was only making things worse. It wasn’t the right time. I worried that we may never be friends again and that part of my life was gone.
But the other week, the friend reached out and sent me a lovely message. It really surprised me and got me thinking about rebuilding friendships. The time we want things to happen in is never usually how life plays out. The reality of the situation was that we both needed time to heal and process what had happened. It took months, but that message was perhaps the start of something new.
Is there someone in your life you need to build bridges with again?
