与老朋友们保持联系 Staying in touch with old friends
I recently met an old friend I hadn’t seen in ages.
He said that he had been busy and also didn’t really know to contact me.
I told him the same.
The truth is, we have a few mutual friends, if we had really wanted to contact each other, we could have.
But with busy schedules, and family life--and all sorts of things going on --well, I guess we just lost touch.
So, I got to thinking about the people I am in touch with now and those I’d like to contact.
I have a lot of friends and acquaintances,
I used to have many more. Somewhere along the line,
we just lost contact with each other.
I’d like to contact some of my friends from high school.
I’d like to say hello to some of the people I used to know in New York and California,
I know I could do it.
It wouldn’t require me to bend over backwards,
but I am not sure if I should.
I mean, I have my hands full right now with family and work.
Plus, I have people that I am in contact with now,
and I fell kind of guilty that I am not able to spend more time with them.
Who needs more guilt? Not me!
