Three Reasons To Find Someone From Your Past
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

There are times in our life that we get stuck in a rut or seem to be hitting a dead end and are not sure where to go or what to do. When these times arise, it may be a good time to find someone from our past and try to reconnect to create new pursuits and opportunities. Someone that you had a good relationship and then lost touch could be the answer a healthier and happier life.

One main reason to find someone from the past and reconnect is the avenue of friendships that can blossom. When you make a connection from a previous friendship, you will usually meet more people because they have met new people since you knew them. Also, it will be an opportunity for them to make new relationships. With this being said, it may lead one or both of you to someone else with commonalities and possibly "the one" that you may spend the rest of your life with. Who knows how big it can grow.

A second reason to find someone you used to know is to build a network of people to create more opportunities in life. These would include job opportunities or a reason to move where there is a better environment to live and raise a family if you have one. Also, the small network that starts with the one person could turn into an avalanche of support and growth in your new life. Think of how small of a seed an oak tree begins and takes off.

A third reason to find someone and rekindle a relationship, would be to have a reason to get away from you current life and situation. Maybe you are in a bad relationship or a not so good environment. However, you want to change and surround yourself with people, possibly from the past, and help pull you out. Support of friends that are in a place you would like to be, is a great way to change your life's situation. Don't be afraid to reach out and ask for help by finding someone.

To find someone, you only have to look at an old phonebook or address book you may have. If they have moved, try to reconnect through a mutual friend, family member or you may have to go online. Online avenues to find someone include social networks or people search sites. Good luck in your search and successful reconnection.
