Post i have this friend...

I have this friend who went to Nepal for 2 years and when he came back, his best friend here, joseph, ignored him. I feel soooo bad! i mean, this kid just came back from being away for 2 years and when he gets back, his best friend doesnt even say- hey you're back! the guy, andrew, has got to feel SOO bad and i just want to make it all right! any advice...?

Unfortunately, things like that happen. As time goes on, people change & when they are not in contact with each other over a period of years, they can change in different ways & not be the same 'friend' as they were when they left.

He shouldn't worry too much about it, I know it's easier said then done! But it doesn't sound to me like Joseph was much of a 'friend' anyway, if he didn't even acknowledge Andrew when he got back!

I am sure Andrew had plenty of other friends, including you, that he should now focus his time on! I must say that it is great of you to want to help him out. Maybe he should really re-think who his best friend is !

Thanx for the advice! I am trying to talk to Andrew a lot. And I think you're right that Joseph wasnt/isnt much of a friend...
