    How to stop missing the one you once cared for?

    Loving and caring for someone is all part of what goes on in close relationships or friendships. How  would you find a way to stop missing the one who often came around and visited but no longer shows up? You had a close friendship with someone and now they don't come to visit and you really miss  their conversations. What would you do?

    Try to be in touch with them through social networks. I have never missed any of my friends as I am very close to them through social networks such as facebook, google plus, twitter etc.. After the arrival of smart phones being in touch with them has become some what easier than before. We are all connected through whatsapp..

    Well if someone who used to meet one very often,  no longer shows up, then there might be  a reason towards it. Start digging up towards the reason and then work it out.. or better find another person with similar interests and fill in the void... I know its tough but that's the way to go in the world where things changes every minute.

    I had a close friend when I was first married, she was the best friend I ever had.  Then we moved to another town, and we still kept in touch.  We lost touch after the marriage to my first husband broke up.  She and her husband were very good friends with my ex in-laws, and they stayed friends forever.  When my ex-mother-in-law passed, I went to her funeral with my daughter and there was my friend at the funeral.  It had been over 20 years.  She lives in Cooperstown, about 2 hours away from me.
    I drove to Cooperstown shortly after, we had lunch.  I tried to re-ignite the friendship, but she never responded to my Christmas cards or the letters inside.  VERY sad loss for me.
    I just read goodnews11 about social connection, so I looked her up on Facebook and there she is!  I sent a friend request and a note...hopefully we can reconnect, but I don't think she is on it very much.
    Same story with another close friend from college...tracked her down on FB, but she has only sent a couple emails.  I SO would love to see them, this other friend is about 3 hours away.  They both live close enough ...

    I DO miss our close friendships and conversations.  I am sad about the way society is today.  No one has TIME!  I truly think we had more time 25 years ago, I really do...there were no grandchildren, and all the problems that exist in family relationships today.

    So what would I do?  The same as goodnews11.  Trying to connect through Facebook at this point.  But things are never the same are they?   Time passes, things change and people change.  I miss those days.

    All this being said, I feel like enormous growth and valuable lessons have transpired...we don't get old, we grow in wisdom, and we become more grateful as the years whiz by.  Blessings, Sparklea wink

      You know reconnecting to friends from the past is such an effort for many and the loss is sad. Thank you for sharing your story.
