And we meet again...

Friday night, I didn't have plans to out but I suddenly got a message from a friend that Geri's in town. Geri and I used to be the best of friends until a misunderstanding three years ago. She left and moved to another city. A year after I wrote her a message on facebook humbly apologizing for what happened between us. Got a positive response but that was all the best we could do at that time. Last night we talked like nothing bad happened between us at all. We were like old friends again. Have you lost a friend and got him or her back again?

That is great for you. I think apologizing, even a small message on facebook, was a good step and if it was a small misunderstanding, she might have forgiven you easily. It is not hard to forgive friends. And I have lost friends too. But not found them back yet. So hopefully, fate will someday intervene and give them back to me.

It wasn't I who wronged her so there's nothing to forgive. I just apologized that we had to go through that and it didn't matter who made the mistake. That's why it was very humbling for me to do that and that made her admire me more.

Hi toni Well, not between a friend but with my dearest cousin sister. We had a misunderstanding during 1996 and for years we didnt see each other. Timings didnt match for us when we could meet. However when we met again in 2000, it was quite an experience. I realized that unless we talk out and communicate between us, the things seem to be too hectic and non manageable. But once we got back, it was the same kind of feeling that we had before. Our egos and thoughts prevent us from meeting up or discussing the things out which many a times increases the gaps and distances. Luckily we broke the ice before it was quite late. I am happy for you dear, that you friends could discuss out and remove any misunderstandings between you. Cheers to the friendships

good to hear that both of you are ok again. friends should learn to forgive and forget. people make mistakes and we should not let it ruined our friendship. I admire you for doing the first move on talking about what happend and apologizing. this really means that you really care for your friendship.

Hello, I don't know may be that is my bad side of my life. If my friends left me, I never seek him/her for something may be because I'm happy for another new friends. I have a friends since 2008 because we have worked together in one company, then we settled to work abroad in the same company also. Then after 2 years we path ways because we worked other companies. At present he worked in abroad but near to my place - but seeing to each other is like rain in the summer.. For me it is not a big deal if we meet in a way we greet to each other but not to the extend of taking long time - I don;t know why?

I have a lot of friends and I don't make any chances or any way to have problem between us. Breaking the relation will not ever help to solve them. Problems are every common in each of us and they can be solved well if we have a calm mind with a good smile.

hi toniganzon how nice you are reconciled with Geri again. I also had huge arguments with my then best friend about 30 years ago, we didnt stay in touch or see each other for quite a long time. But I met her at a school reunion, we talked but that was it, met her on the train when she went to work once or twice as well and quite some time ago she e mailed me as another reunion was planned. I have moved away from my old hometown and didnt have a place to stay anymore so I declined and said I could not come there but she mailed me again and asked whether we could pick up where we left off writing e mails now instead of lots of letters like in your younger days and I said yes, sure, and wrote her back but I didnt hear from her again after that.
