A friend and I had a major falling out over a difference in lifestyle about 2 years ago. He told me that he never wanted to have contact with me in the future. I really miss him, and I have attempted to reach him every six months or so (two of our mutual friends died, and I wanted to let him know.) Each time he ignores me. I know that he said that he didn't want to see me again, but he never really gave me a chance to explain my side before he walked out. I still care about my friend and consider him to be as close as family. But I am afraid to call or drop by, fearing rejection. What should I do?
