Worth another try

Recently a friend told me one of her saddest unresolved incidents is a break with one of her dearest friends.Several years ago there was a bumpy patch in the relationship and their parting was less than amicable. There has not been one day since that break when she has not missed the friendship but has been reluctant to make contact because she feared any attempt would be rejected. I agreed that was a possibility but told her it seemed that the pain of losing her friend was greater than the risk of rejection.Pride and defenses may work to protect the psyche but friendship is always worth one more try. Going the extra mile may be difficult but friends are such treasures and losing even one is one too many.
