Reflect on the reasons for the estrangement: It is important to identify and understand the reasons that led to the estrangement. Reflect on your own actions and how they may have contributed to the situation. Try to see things from the other person's perspective and acknowledge any mistakes you may have made.(Unsplash)

Reach out: Once you have a better understanding of the situation, reach out to the other person. This could be through a letter, email, phone call or face-to-face meeting. Express your willingness to work on the relationship and apologize for any hurt or harm caused.(Unsplash)


Listen actively: When you meet with the other person, make sure to actively listen to what they have to say. Allow them to express their feelings and concerns without interrupting or becoming defensive. Show empathy and try to understand their perspective.(Unsplash)

Work on solutions together: Once you have both had a chance to share your perspectives, work together to find solutions that can help improve the relationship. This could involve setting boundaries, establishing clear communication, or working on specific issues that contributed to the estrangement.(Unsplash)
