A colleague I had lost touch for nearly a decade reached out to me few weeks ago.
We had a wonderful chat.
What struck me was that he felt hesitant to reach out because he hadn’t kept in touch for a long time.
Let me be clear.
If you’ve entered my life at one point in time, no matter how long we’ve lost touch, you’re still in my life.
Please do not hesitate to reach out to me. Losing touch is one of the most natural things that can happen in life. There’s nothing wrong with it.
This is even more so if you wish to ask me for a favor. Please ask me for favors. I’d love to help if I can. I feel alive when I’m contributing to other people’s lives. If I can help, you’re doing me a favor.
