Igniting friendships when returning home from travel.

One of the hardest things that so many people face I when returning home from long term travel is re-establishing my friendship circles.

People come into our life for a reason, a season or a lifetime, when you figure out which it is, you will know exactly what to do.

What I have learned when reconnecting with old friends.

APPROACH EACH FRIEND WITH ENTHUSIASM AND A ‘PICK UP WHERE YOU LEFT OFF’ MENTALITY.

  • Be the one to actively approach and reach out to old friends to arrange to catch up.
  • Be interested in what they have been doing with their life as well as sharing your story.

RELEASE EXPECTATIONS ABOUT HOW YOUR RELATIONSHIPS ‘SHOULD’ BE.

  • Relationships may now be different closer or more distance depending on what has changed.
  • The friendship doesn't have to be the same as it was.
  • Acknowledge you have changed.  
  • Your friends may have changed or they may not have, both is ok.

CONTINUE TO SEEK NEW FRIENDS IN YOUR OLD HOME.

  • Like on your your travels don’t let go of this skill just because you are now at home.
  • Seek like minded people though community and events.
  • Be the one to go first even if it feels out of your comfort zone
