... and I really enjoyed it! I think it all is a question of one’s perspective on the friendship:
If I feel that the friend is someone from the past, then I regard the relationship as “terminated” and we mostly talk of events gone by and give a short update on the latest news. Nostalgia meetings and conversations like this are nice from time to time, but not really friendships.
If I feel that the friendship is for today and tomorrow, I can share my life with him/her and they share theirs with me. Of course, this is only possible with a few old friends, but it’s worth it!!!
The important thing is to find out which type of friend the person is—and keeping in touch is a good way to do so.
