    I wouldn't say it's easy to get dropped from mine but once you are out...it's almost impossible to get back in.

    weight the benefits vs negatives of being around them...also try and really remember why you lost contact in the first place. It's easy to forget how much folks bothered you if you haven't seen them for a while
