Lost friendship

Posting for advice please ladies
I had a very good friend, ill call her A.
We met at 16 working in a department store and became close friends very quickly. After we had both moved onto new jobs we remained close friends and met up regularly.
At 21 i we were still very close, i was by this time in a relationship with an older man who was very controlling and abusive. Due to this i let the friendship fade away. Ive been out of abusive relationship for over a year now and really miss A. Im not sure if i should contact her to try and fix things? Or what i could say to explain? Any advice appreciated

I think you should contact her. Apologise for losing touch and explain about why. Just tell her the truth. If it helps show her this thread. I think she will be really pleased to hear from you.

No harm in trying is there? Be prepared or the friendship to blossom or be a none starter. You'll only know if you contact her and when you meet up face to face. I do wish you all the best.

Good luck Lucy. She will be so chuffed to hear from you. You may not get back the same close relationship but I think She will be pleased you got in touch. Let us know how it goes.
