I'm extremely bad at staying in touch with people. I feel absolutely no inclination to pick up a phone and call someone, or text, or email (even if I did, I wouldn't know what to talk about).
That being said, I feel guilty about this at the same time. I have literally gone years without talking to people, but if they ran into me on the street I would treat them as no time has passed. I have never had anyone directly confront me about this, but I can't help but feel that I'm being a bad friend by not staying in contact with others.
What are some ways that I can go about re-opening contact with old friends? I don't want to come across too awkwardly. I'm open to any communication type that I have available as well.
Most of them have Facebook, so this may be a viable avenue for re-opening conversations with them, but I feel like many people would find it strange reaching out to them after so long. Would Facebook come across as disingenuous?
These are mainly old school friends and people I grew up with.
