What does it mean to reconnect with someone? Do you think of a dinner and a long talk, or a couple of hours in conversation at a party? It makes sense, those are events people attribute to reconnection. But does that actually mean anything? You learn what so and so has done recently, where whoever is going, or how person number 3 has changed. But why do you care? It’s because you are selfish. Why do you have friends? So they can help you achieve goals and needs, like happiness. Why do you keep friends around? So they can keep doing just that. Reconnecting is merely finding out how people can serve your needs since you stopped letting them try.
